Despite the fact that Neto uses his poetry to fight the colonial cause and to sensitize his people to the need for revolution, he is not sufficiently naïve to think that poetry alone is enough to change the state of affairs.
Agostinho Neto was elected its president in 1962, remaining so until he died in 1979, which makes him the first president of independent Angola.
That is, it allowed Neto to speak directly to the colonizer and appeal to his/her sense of justice; it allowed him to state his people's right to independence as well as the legitimacy of African culture and its existence long before the arrival of colonizers.

Marques analyses Neto's poetry in the context of littérature engagé: if only the cries, putrid smells, and bloodshed were allowed to penetrate the thick wall of the utilitarian human mind, if only emotion had a little more room to breathe freely and then, perhaps, could poetry perform fresh, new, and potent miracles.
Marques argues that Agostinho Neto was not only the first president of independent Angola, he was also a great poet who put his art at the service of Angola's anti-colonial revolution and struggle for cultural and political independence.
Neto was a man whose artistic life is connected deeply to and inseparable from his socio-political environment.
