Poems of José María Heredia

The poem “Al salto del Niagara” was interpreted as a metaphor for Cuba’s freedom and desire to break with Spain, the colonial metropolis.
Although José María Heredia was a poet interested in classical forms, he was marked by the melancholy of romanticism and the enjoyment of nature. His passionate temperament is reflected in his two best-known poems: “El Teocalli de Cholula” (1820) and “Al salto del Niagara” (1824).

Edition with a prologue from: Emilio Roig de Leuchsenring.
