"Sentimientos a la luz" is a compilation of poems on love and social issues, reflecting Cuban author Orlinde M. Lara Batista's feelings at different stages of her life, beginning in the 50s when Fulgencio Batista ruled, and blood stained the streets of Bayamo. On October 22, 1957, her house was machine-gunned while her family was asleep -- fortunately everyone survived, but Lara Batista's first verses nonetheless exhorted Cubans to join the revolutionary struggle to which she belonged.
