Martí and the United States

According to Enrique Anderson Imbert in his book Historia de la literatura hispanoamericana, (History of Latin American Literature), José Martí is one of the great treasures that the Spanish language has given to the world. While he left behind a number of organic works, he was essentially a chronicler; a master of merging information and commentary in a single line, and of intertwining literature and life in his chronicle. He wrote a great deal about Cuba and about the America that he called “ours.”

Brazil: A Pyrric Victory and What Comes Afterwards
Brazil
Dilma’s victory was distressing and difficult in yesterday’s run-off, the closest ever in Brazilian history, according to several newspapers on their front pages. In the 2006 runoff Lula defeated the candidate of the PSDB, Geraldo Alckmin, by more than twenty points: 61 to 39 percent. In 2010 Dilma crushed the PSDB candidate Jose Serra in the second round by twelve points: 56 to 44 percent. Yesterday, she beat Aecio by only three points: 51.6 to 48.5 percent. Distressing and uncertain not so much though, not because of the tiny difference with which she defeated her rival but rather because of the agonizing three weeks of the campaign where, for a moment, the Workers’ Party (PT) looked to be condemned to take on a humiliating return to the bench after 12 years in government. And if that was something that almost happened, it was due to their own errors rather than because of the merits of their very conservative opponent.
