Marti transformed rebellion into revolution. . . . Like a master weaver, Marti 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. Perez Jr, author of Jose Marti in the United States"Oh Cuba! . . . the blood of Marti was not yours alone; it belonged to an entire race, to an entire continent; it belonged to the powerful youth who have lost probably the best of teachers; he belonged to the future!"-Ruben DarioThis new edition of an elegant anthology features bilingual poetry, a revised translation, and several new pieces. It presents the full breadth of Jose Marti's work: his political essays and writings on culture, his letters, and his poetry.
