The arrest and detention of poet Heberto Padilla by Cuban G2 agents shook the foundations of the Revolution's positive image among leftist circles around the world. In a series of published declarations and letters of protest to Fidel Castro, the world's most famous anti-imperialist writers expressed outrage over the humiliation of Padilla. Padilla was imprisoned for five weeks in a basement cell of Villa Marista and faced daily interrogations, some of them facilitated by psychotropic drugs. This epilogue argues that Padilla's arrest and its legacies, known as “El Caso Padilla,” represents an allegory for many of the arguments put forward in this book.
