For the first time, the Cuban audience will have access to the artist’s literary work, with the collection of verses ‘El instante cernido’ (1953), ‘Estacion de la hierba’ (1957), ‘Destrucciones por el horizonte’ (1968), ‘Apuntes para una mitica de La Habana’ (1971), ‘Suma de ecos’ (1989), ‘Umbral’ (1997) and the personal anthology ‘Cifra’ (2003).
