Synopsis: Poetry. Bilingual Edition. Translated from the Spanish by Roberto Marquez. In this collection, Guillen's vision of life as a widespread and diverse menagerie remains as potent today as when it was first published. Guillen's poetry draws on chilling realities and the absurd to fashion a zoo of natural and humanmade wonders alongside a wealth of social and political issues.
About the Author: Nicolás Guillén was born in the provincial city of Camagüey, Cuba, on July 10, 1902. His distinguished career included editor of the literary page of Las dos repúblicas. He founded and edited Lis, a literary biweekly. He also wrote for the newspaper El Camagueyano. Guillén's invocation and reliance on the vernacular musical form emerged from the creolization of African and European aesthetics. Not only was Guillén one of Cuba's foremost poets who wrote in many styles, he is regarded as one of the foremost Caribbean poets of the 20th Century.
