A CENTURY OF CUBAN WRITERS IN FLORIDA
A Century of Cuban Writers explores the intricate connection that has existed between Florida and Cuba for centuries by collecting the works of thirty-three Cuban writers who lived or live today in Florida. Among these, we find some of the most important Cuban men and women of letters, such as Felix Varela, Jose Marti, Juana Borrero, Enrique Labrador Ruiz, Herberto Padilla, Hilda Perera, Jose Yglesias, and Ricardo Pau-Llosa. This book brings together their voices to create a remarkable literary journey through history. The works are presented in English, most translated here for the first time. The editors also provide a comprehensive introduction, which examines the historical importance of the Cuban contribution to Florida's heritage. Both the literary works and the insightful introduction make this book a major addition to history, as well as the literary arts.
