Review "A welcomed introduction to the Cuban writer, easily adaptable, pedagogically speaking, to current academic and cultural debates."--Antonio Vera-León, State Universtiy of New York at Stony Brook"Oscar Montero makes Martí accessible and relevant to today's English-language reader in this engagingly written and authoritative introduction. The book places Martí in relation to American authors such as Emerson and Whitman, with whom he carried out a dialogue of which most Americans are not aware. Bi-lingual and bi-cultural in the deepest sense, Montero has written a book that should also be of the utmost interest to Latin Americans in this country and back home, as well as to students and scholars. I cannot think of a better introduction to the Cuban poet and patriot in any language."--Roberto González Echevarría, Sterling Professor of Hispanic and Comparative Literatures, Yale University."Without engaging in simplification or anachronism, Montero gives us a contemporary Martí, strikingly relevant to modern cultural debates in the United States and across the Americas. The book constitutes a powerful call for a generous rereading of Martí on issues of identity, race, gender, inter-American relations, exile and imperialism. For those interested in formulations of latinidad and eager to foster true dialogue and cultural exchange between the Americas, north and south, this book is more than just useful: it is indispensable."--Sylvia Molloy, Albert Schweitzer Professor in the Humanities, New York University"This is an extremely successful introduction to Martí. Through sharp, fresh analyses, Montero offers an extensive interpretation of Marti’s multi-faceted work, with special attention to his views of the racial, cultural and political dilemmas of the United States. One of the many attractive things about this book is Montero’s historically focused reflections on Martí´s understanding of Latinos. "--Arcadio Díaz Quiñones, Princeton University About the Author Oscar Montero is Professor of Latin American Literature at Lehman College and The Graduate Center of the City University of New York.
