(p.73) Chapter Two José Martí at Vega del Jobo (1895)
Cuba's Wild East
Liverpool University Press

This chapter sets the war diary of José Martí alongside the exile poems of his most famous predecessor as a Cuban poet, José María Heredia, alongside the work of the indigenista movement known in Cuba as siboneyismo, and alongside some of Martí's other writings. His most famous essay, ‘Nuestra América’ [Our America], is considered. The chapter also explains the subsequent constructions of the indigenous presence in Oriente. Then, it describes the impulse behind ‘Nuestra América’ by Patricio Del Real. It suggests that the small indigenous communities in Vega del Jobo may be hidden in the mountains, but they embody the history of Oriente.

Keywords:   José Martí, Vega del Jobo, José María Heredia, exile poems, siboneyismo, Nuestra América, Oriente, Patricio Del Real
