Overview

Versos Sencillos by Jose Marti

In 1890, the great Cuban revolutionary leader José Martí wrote his most famous poetry, Versos Sencillos, in a small town called Haines Falls in the Catskill Mountains of New York. Sincere and intensely personal in tone, these verses form a unique autobiographical expression yet have world-wide appeal.

This dual-language edition of Versos Sencillos offers both the Spanish-language original and a graceful English translation of each poem in the collection. The translation follows the original rhyme scheme where feasible but deliberately chooses meaning over form, staying true to mood and method. In addition to notes on the poems, this edition also includes the particulars of translation and provides a background for the composition of the verses, features lacking in earlier translations. An index of first lines, both English and Spanish, is included.

About the Author

José Martí (1853 - 1895). Entre los poetas cubanos el más destacado es José Martí, de cuyas poesías incluso se han valido muchos músicos para conquistar la fama internacional. Martí fue condenado a la cárcel y al posterior exilio por su vision de una cuba libre, pero no renunció a sus ideas y utilizó la poesía como un medio de combate y expresión. El poeta falleció en el 19 de mayo de 1895 en un lluvia de balas enemigas. Siempre defendiendo a su patria en palabra y acción.
