The news of the departure of the famous Cuban poet and writer Roberto Fernández Retamar, President of Casa de las Américas, moves us all. His work has transcended the pages of Cuban and Hispanic-American literature of the 20th and 21st centuries.

His ideas, ethics and fidelity throughout his life places Roberto among the history of those men and women who left indelible traces in the Cuban Revolution. May our profound sentiment reach his family, the intellectuals, the people of Cuba and their government.
