    1) I think the song it is good to listen, but when you start to analize the lyrics, they let you think of some things that you do not like or do not want to think about them, because it is like a sad song. The name of the book is called: “Songs of Innocence”.

    3)No, I can not remember of anyone now.

    3) There is a poem called “La Margarita”, by Mauricio Rosencof, that has been turned into a song by Jaime Roos. Mauricio, the poet, was in jail for 12 years because he was a fundator of the Tupamaros movement. While he was in jail, his family brought him cigarrete paper so he could make his own cigarretes. Instead of doing that, he used the paper to write a poem based on teenagers’ love stories, and the family kept those papers until Mauricion came out of jail, and then he published them. Jaime Ross turned his poems into songs to honour him.

    Yes. Years ago I saw the movie Invictus (life of Nelson Mandela). The name of the movie became from the poem of William Henley that wrote in 1975. Nelson Mandela had a piece of paper with it when he was in prison. Many people turned this into a song.

    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    In the fell clutch of circumstance
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
    Under the bludgeonings of chance
    My head is bloody, but unbowed.

    Beyond this place of wrath and tears
    Looms but the Horror of the shade,
    And yet the menace of the years
    Finds and shall find me unafraid.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate:
    I am the captain of my soul.
