I have thirty-two long years working professionally. During the first twenty years I attended behavioral and learning problems in children. During the innumerable sessions of family that I carried out, to diagnose emotionally and then to orient the parents on the ways in which they should treat their children, I discovered the imperceptible threads that connect these problems with parents¨ attitudes and emotional factors, in a clear relation of cause and effect. Subsequently I could go detecting the processes that carry to the construction of a solid conjugal, familiar and personal happiness, through the cultivation of the human virtues and the education in values. Finally I get interest into the reach of peace through the cultivation of literature and especially through the cultivation of poetry.

This book develops a procedure to help the individuals, families and all social groups to find peace, by the promotion and the diffusion of thoughts that are indispensable for a sane social development. This diffusion could be possible by the systematic and non systematic education, using literature and culture that are able to lead us towards peace. A serene mind, a state of tranquil spirit and a harmonious, altruistic way of life are capable to transform Earth into a Peace Universe.

We need to create a solid equilibrium between the members of the social cells: families and then neighborhoods. But how can we achieve these goals? The literature that involves high values and especially the peace poetry can be innovative instruments to help us in this attempt.

To cite other matters, the concept of the peace that I present in this book is the general from personal to social levels.

Personal peace can be reached through the development of a mind free of stimulus after relaxation, meditation and even pray. Literature is a great help in this direction. Familiar conflicts can be resolved using literary activities too.

Social peace is not only the lack of violence but above all, the presence of a continuous and vivid equilibrium in the interior of social groups. We need to study the ways to maintain societies far from compulsive repetition of the social violence. Recent investigations found that history characters that have perpetrated genocides or other crimes against humanity have had a terrible infancy. We need to understand the delicate mechanisms of history and the psychological causes of political decisions. Consistently, the extraordinary way to prevent the social violence is the education of new generations in the maintenance of peace as a main and important value to be maintained and to be cultivated by all. Globalization has created a new environment where the interchanging of diverse cultural values is practiced daily. Particularly, Bilingual Literature is the main cultural activity that transports the cultural meanings that are fond of peace, in the meaning of equilibrium, harmony and serenity.
