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.

Jose Marti

José Julián Martí y Pérez (1853-95), writer and revolutionary, was an iconic figure in Cuba's struggle for independence from Spain. He was to become a symbol of liberty throughout Latin America.
