This English-language edition presents the celebrated Cuban writer and revolutionary José Martí’s thoughts on art and literature. His essays on painters and literary figures can stand with the best of modern criticism, and his writing on culture reminds us that Martí deserves to be remembered for far more than his inestimable contribution to the Cuban independence struggle.
José Martí (1853-1895) was a Cuban writer, poet, journalist, and revolutionary independence leader. He spent years in exile in Spain, France, and the United States, where he wrote and organized for the cause of Cuban independence and against annexation by the United States. Martí returned to Cuba to fight against Spanish rule and was killed at the Battle of Dos Ríos in 1895. Today he is widely regarded as a great patriot and the national hero of Cuba.
