Jose Marti occupies a central place in Latin American letters, and he is an unparalleled foundational figure in Cuban culture. Marti's writing shaped a hemispheric consciousness in the Americas, and as national poet and patriotic "apostle," he is revered by generations of Cubans everywhere. Asessayist, journalist, and revolutionary, Marti fought for Cuban independence and helped defend the ideal of Latin American autonomy against empires old and new. This ground-breaking two-volume work offers the most comprehensive collection of Marti's prose work available in English. Where recenttranslations have offered selective anthologies of Marti's writing, this edition offers a key archive of essays, journalism, speeches, political documents, and historic correspondence, many translated for the first time. The first volume gathers essential texts and letters that have shaped Cubanhistory, nationalism, and political ideology, and which challenged and defined the course of revolutionary struggle. The second volume offers a comprehensive selection of Marti's vision of the Americas, combining his reflections on Latin American history, culture and political economy, and hiscritical observations on the modernity and upheavals of the United States in the late nineteenth century.
