"¡Écue-Yamba-Ó!" is a critical edition of Alejo Carpentier's first novel, which narrates the life of Afro-Cuban Menegildo Cue in the early 20th century. This work was heralded as one of the most influential within its genre, and contains detailed naturalistic descriptions with avant-garde metaphors. The text is also a crucial piece in constructing an understanding of Cuba's reality at the time, and a cornerstone of Spanish American literature.
