9781931896399: Come, Come-My Boiling Blood: The Complete Poems of JosÚ MartÝ

Come, Come-My Boiling Blood contains the complete texts of Jos Mart's first five books of poetry. Most readers know "Yo Soy un Hombre Sincero" because of the wonderful rendition by Pete Seeger, but to date the large body of Jos Mart's poetic work has been unavailable in English translation.

One of the greatest writers of Spanish America, Jos Mart is revered not only as the father of modernist poetry, but also of the Cuban independence movement. His political activism fueled his writing, motivating him to produce poetry, political manifestos, speeches, and hundreds of articles and reviews for journals worldwide. He is considered a hero by many for his leadership of the nationalist forces in the Cuban war of independence, which eventually led to his untimely death. His writings and political activism were based on strong personal beliefs of morality, independence, and patriotism, a combination that both his followers and readers have found compelling for over a hundred years.

Jos Mart was born in Havana, Cuba. During his life he suffered imprisonment and exile for his beliefs. He was killed in battle with Spanish troops at the Battle of Dos Rios in 1895.

Jack Ageros was born in East Harlem in 1934 and still resides in New York City. A poet, playwright, fiction writer, and translator, he has published three books of poetry and a collection of short stories titled Dominoes. He is the translator and editor of Song of the Simple Truth, a bilingual collection of poems by Julia de Burgos.
