Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This Reader presents an outstanding new anthology of the writings, poetry and letters of José Martí — one of the most brilliant and impassioned Latin American intellectuals of the 19th century.

Teacher, journalist, revolutionary and poet, José Martí interweaves the threads of Latin American culture and history, fervently condemning the brutality and corruption of the Spanish colonizers as well as the increasingly predatory ambitions of the United States in Latin America. "I have lived in the monster and I know its entrails; my sling is David?s," Martí wrote shortly before his death.

Review:

"Oh Cuba! — the blood of Martí was not yours alone; it belonged to an entire race, to an entire continent; it belonged to the powerful youth who has lost probably the best of teachers; he belonged to the future!" Rubén Darío

Review:

"Not only was Martí one of the most brilliant literary figures in the history of Latin American letters, but also — as the relevance of his observations, more than a century later shows — he was one of the most underrated political thinkers of modern times." John Kirk

Review:

"[Martí] added a social agenda to the historic program of national liberation and instantly converted a movement devoted to the establishment of a new nation into a force dedicated to shaping a new society. Martí transformed rebellion into revolution. His revolutionary formula was a conglomeration of national pride, social theory, anti-imperialism and personal intuition. He rationalized it all into a single revolutionary party. Like a master weaver, Martí pulled together all the separate threads of Cuban discontent — social, economic, political, racial, historical — and wove them into a radical movement of enormous force." Louis A. Pérez, Jr.

Review:

"From 1898 to the present day the validity of the admonitory words of Martí has retained its force. The main problems confronting nuestra América since the 1880s are those foreseen by Martí." Roberto Fernández Retamar

Synopsis:

An outstanding new anthology of the writings, letters and poetry of one of the most important and brilliant Latin American voices of the 19th century. "Jos Mart was a revolutionary writer in every sense of the word."-Ivan Schulman

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [273]-276).
