Poems to remember the struggle

- Wits University

Mainly written in exile while FitzGerald served as a full-time revolutionary, struggle themes are artfully threaded in the book.

Patrick FitzGerald, a professor based at the Wits School of Governance, will launch his book Epitaphs and dreams: Poems to remember the struggle tomorrow. Epitaphs and Dreams vividly expresses the thoughts, emotions, situations, passions and challenges in the life of a liberation cadre. The author is at once the militant, the romantic, the analyst and the sardonic observer; the poetry ranging from delicate and lyrical to powerfully directed narrative cadences.
