Greetings to all members from Kingston, Canada.  I am an MA student, and am currently preparing to begin a study of Cuban literature and society.  I wonder if I could get some opinions and suggestions as to which Cuban writers one should start with, considering that my knowledge of Cuban literature is virtually nil.  I have read (and been in touch with) Jorge Reyes, but on-one else, and I would like to know which novelists and poets I should read first when trying to gather a representative view of Cuban writing.

Your input would be most appreciated.

Wishing Cuba, and all who care about her, well.

I am sorry I did not see your posting before. Read the works of Jose Marti, a poet, a writer and a visionary.
