Summary

The Cuban poet Nicolas Guillen, who was born in the eastern province of Camaguey in 1902, died in 1989. This new edition of his selected poems, reissued thirty years after its original publication, includes an extensive, new introductory essay by Roberto Marquez, one of the original translators and a leading authority on Caribbean and Latin American literature and culture. Celebrated as Cuba's national poet, Guillen also attracted an international following, as evidenced by these tributes written after his death:
