Bloodred Dragonflies

by Jim Pascual Agustin

Bloodred Dragonflies is Agustin's first book published in South Africa. A selection from three decades of work, it includes new poems and some recently translated versions of poems from the Filipino. His poems, constructed from subtle images, close observations of nature and refracted memories, demonstrate how innocence can stay alive under the most difficult conditions.
