Review:

"It is by far the best collection of essays about one of the most significant and least understood thinkers of nineteenth-century Latin America. Some essays are simply extraordinary. They give a good sense of the complexities, contradictions, and passion with which Jose Marti engaged in literary pursuits and politics. The reader who does not know Marti gets a sense of his importance; the reader who knows Marti is challenged to revise assumptions and explore new suggestive avenues in his work. The essays move easily between periods and authors, demonstrating the centrality of Marti for the entire continent up to the present." -- Ivan Jaksic, University of Notre Dame

"It is fascinating to take a thinker of Marti's stature who wrote over one hundred years ago and insert his perspective in the context of our present-day issues. I don't know of any other collection of Marti studies that achieves this goal as strongly. This collection contains some bold and innovative work." -- Ofelia Schutte, Universityof Florida
