Quesada told exclusively Prensa Latina that the book addresses Mistral’s relationship with Martí’s thought, evident in her own vocational training.
The book collects not only poetic texts, but also prose writings by the Chilean writer that were scattered in different magazines, newspapers and other publications of the time.
According to Quesada, the volume gathers Mistral’s poetry related to Cuba and her texts about Martí, exposed in several lectures she gave in different countries.
Mistral had a Marti’s formation from an early age, began to admire Martí through ‘Versos Sencillos’ (Simple Verses) and studied his prose, especially ‘Nuestra Americas’ (Our America), seeking the Americanist ideology, he said. (Taken from Prensa Latina)
