Cuban prime minister recalls publication of “El Diablo Cojuelo”

Havana, Jan 19 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Prime Minister Manuel Marrero on Wednesday recalled the publication of "El Diablo Cojuelo" (The Lame Devil or The Crippled Devil), the first journal with a political hue produced by National Hero Jose Marti (1853-1895) when he was 16 years old.

On his Twitter account, the head of Government referred to the 153rd anniversary of the publication, conceived by Marti together with his friend Fermin Valdes Dominguez (1853-1910), and which contained a irony and humor, rarely present in his work, to depict the realities of Cuba under Spanish colonization.

El Diablo Cojuelo was a four-page printed flyer and its name is related to the homonymous novel by Luis Velez de Guevara, a renowned 17th-century writer.

The publication had as its context the printing freedoms temporarily granted by the Captain General of Cuba, Domingo Dulce, who replaced Francisco Lersundi.
