José Martí, the United States, and race by Anne Owen Fountain( )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 1,020 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A national hero in Cuba and a champion of independence across Latin America, Jose Marti produced a body of writing that has been theorized, criticized, and politicized. However, one of the most understudied aspects of his work is how his time in the United States affected what he wrote about race and his attitudes toward racial politics. In the United States Marti encountered European immigrants and the labor politics that accompanied them and became aware of the hardships experienced by Chinese workers. He read in newspapers and magazines about the oppression of Native Americans and the adversity faced by newly freed black citizens. Although he'd first witnessed the mistreatment of slaves in Cuba, it was in New York City, near the close of the century, where he penned his famous essay "My Race," declaring that there was only one race, the human race. Anne Fountain argues that it was in the United States that Marti--confronted by the forces of manifest destiny, the influence of race in politics, the legacy of slavery, and the plight and promise of the black Cuban diaspora--fully engaged with the specter of racism. Examining Marti's complete works with a focus on key portions, Fountain reveals the evolution of his thinking on the topic, indicating the significance of his sources, providing a context for his writing, and offering a structure for his works on race."--Page 4 of cover
José Martí and U.S. writers by Anne Fountain( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cuba's patriot and most famous writer, Jose Marti, lived in the United States for 15 years and wrote extensively about 19th-century American writers. This meticulous guide to Marti's multiple connections with U.S. literature provides for the first time in English a comprehensive analysis of his critiques of 40 American authors and his translations of American prose and poetry. Fountain presents an overview of his writing about American authors--from Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry James to John Burroughs--and documents in Marti's writing previously unidentified translations from American authors. Separate chapters cover Emerson, Whitman, and Longfellow; other authors are grouped under Romanticism and Realism. Drawing on the 28 volumes of Marti's Complete Works, Fountain offers an extensive discussion of the Cuban writer's aesthetic precepts and preferences and demonstrates that his fascination with American authors is central to understanding his views of U.S. culture
Versos sencillos = Simple verses by José Martí( Book )

"This dual-language edition of Versos Sencillos offers both the Spanish-language original and English translation of each poem in the collection.

Closed for repairs by Nancy Alonso( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Closed for Repairs is a series of eleven vignettes that depict Cuban ingenuity in the face of urban problems. Each solution is framed with humor and irony and gives a glimpse of life on the island today. In a clever fashion, Nancy Alonso shows us the spirit of resolve on the part of Cubans when faced with such issues as transportation problems, lack of water, and the shortage of consumer goods and construction materials caused by the embargo
Disconnect = Desencuentro by Nancy Alonso( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A bilingual edition of short fiction, DISCONNECT/ DESENCUENTRO explores sexuality, morality, and coincidence in present day Cuba. Irony and subtle humor permeate these stories, each with an internal disconnect of one type or another, prompting us to laugh at the inherent contradictions of life itself. Consistently characteristic of Alonso's fiction is her creation of everyday scenes and dialogues that are universally understood yet deeply rooted in Cuban reality--and Ethiopia, where Alonso was stationed. She is a masterful observer of human foibles, revealing missteps and hypocrisy with a sure touch and letting her readers discover the many ways that people connect and disconnect with the world around them
