ABSTRACT
The article discusses the works of Cuban poet María Elena Llana. It asserts that Llana is considered a distinguished fantasy short story writer, as well as an astute social critic of Cuban society. It describes the context in which she wrote, including during her tenure as a journalist for Cuban news publications such as "Revolución" and "La Tarde." It claims that she bucked literary trends associated with certain literary periods in Cuba, such as the "quinquenio de oro" from 1966 to 1970.
