About this book

Jose Marti, Cuban national hero, was one of Latin America's most influential litereary and political figures. There is currently no introductory overview to his complex body of works. Jose Marti: An Introduction offers such an introduction to Marti's most pertinent, enduring ideas, exploring his writing on race, gender, the relationship between Cuba and the US, and issues of displacement and bilingualism. The writing is accessible on the undergraduate level, yet Montero does not oversimplify ambiguities and contradictions of Marti's work and life.

Reviews

'The book places Marti in relation to American authors such as Emerson and Whitman, with whom he carried out a dialogue of which most Americans are not aware. I cannot think of a better introduction to the Cuban poet and patriot in any language.' - Roberto González Echevarría, Yale University.
