Summary
This volume is the first comprehensive overview of poetry written by Cubans in the more than six decades since 1944. Presented in a Spanish-English en face edition, The Whole Island makes available the astonishing achievement of a wide range of Cuban poets. The translations, almost all of them new, convey the intensity and beauty of the accompanying Spanish originals. With their work deeply rooted in Cuban culture, many of these poets--both on and off the island--have been at the center of the political and social changes of this tempestuous period. The poems offered here constitute an essential source for understanding the literature and culture of Cuba, its diaspora, and the Caribbean at large, and provide an unparalleled perspective on what it means to be Cuban
