There are many worlds within this one. Among them is the world of solitude. The history of solitude begins with the world itself. Alone but not lonely, at the dawn it sat waiting for companions to join it on its journey.
Solitude often evokes sentiments of reflection and mediation. This book, however, examines the evolution of solitude in a more portentous context.
Beginning with a peaceful awakening in Africa, the birthplace of humankind, to the metaphoric decline of humanity in the city, this narrative traces solitude as a means of expressing the vanishing soul.
