In the new "never" collection, the reader will find both the well-known Ślāpin's sharp vision and an unusually ambitious form of expression. His latest poems are distinctly dialogic, they want to talk to the reader, to tell how it is or could be. They have the wit of a sermon, but also a democratic openness, without losing any of what is often demanded of modern poetry.The editor of the collection Raimonds Ķirķis
