First edition, presumed. 8vo, wrps, v-xi pp., 340 pp., charts, chronology, glossary, preface, list of poets and poems in translation Used; Very Good Paperback 081120538X In Cuba, a spontaneous, discursive, and not altogether uncritical account of life in a revolutionary society. Hovering over Cardenal's whole view of Cuba is the mythic presence of Che Guevara, the martyred revolutionary, and that of the flesh-and-blood Fidel. Appropriately enough, the book culminates in a description of the Cuban premier's four-hour speech on the 26th of July, and concludes with a private interview with Castro, held the following year.
