The complexity of a country in which violence and internal armed conflict coexist with enormous cultural, natural, and human riches is captured in this illuminating essay by a Colombian poet. A refreshed view of Colombia is proposed, shedding light on the possibility of a future in which the nation may become reconciled with itself. The accompanying photographs, all previously unpublished, are taken by some of Colombia's best photographers.
