Ernesto Cardenal - Twice Nobel Prize nominated author of more than thirty-five books, the Nicaraguan writer, priest, and activist, Ernesto Cardenal has always considered poetry as a powerful agent for constructive social change.

His poetry gives voice to the voiceless, speaking out against oppression. His English translation poetry volumes include Marilyn Monroe and Other Poems (1965), The Psalms of Struggle and Liberation (1967), To Live is to Love (1970), In Cuba (1974), Apocalypse and Other Poems (1977), Nicaraguan New Time (1988), Cosmic Canticle (1993), and The Doubtful Strait (1995). Choice Magazine calls Cardenal "one of the world's major poets."
