Welcome to the web component for my book about José Martí the myth and the man, featuring images of Martí in myth form; as a Super Martí, as one of the three wise men, as a visiting alien from a far off planet... and as himself.
The book commemorates the 120th anniversary of Martí’s death in battle with speculative images and stories in which Martí’s after-life reaches new levels of visual elucidation and iconography.
The history portion (at the end of the book) includes a bio, a timeline and parts of a historic speech at Tampa Bay.
Martí was a revolutionary figure as well as a major writer and inspirational icon to Cubans and Spanish-speaking Americans.
I hope that the items on these pages will encourage you to buy the book, embrace the myth and learn something about the man some still call El Maestro...
“Whether you call someone a hero or a monster is all relative to where the focus of your consciousness may be.”
