The chapter considers three poems composed by Afro-Cuban poet Marcelino Arozarena, “La comparsa del majá,” “La conga,” and “Carnaval de Santiago.” In this discussion of these poems, the chapter argues that through their widely varying depictions of traditional Afro-Cuban carnival celebrations, each serves as an emblematic example of what we might refer to as the three dimensions of Arozarena's poetic production.
