Jorge Mañach

Jorge Mañach (February 14, 1898 Sagua La Grande-June 25, 1961 San Juan) was a Cuban writer and politician.

Mañach was a prominent figure in the Cuban intellectual and cultural scene in the first half of the 20th century. He studied philosophy, literature, and law at the University of Havana and later earned a doctorate in philosophy from the Sorbonne in Paris.

As a writer, Mañach is best known for his essay "Indagación del choteo" (Investigation of Teasing), in which he examined the concept of "choteo" or satire in Cuban culture. He also wrote several plays, novels, and literary critiques.

In addition to his literary work, Mañach was involved in politics and served as Cuba's ambassador to the United States from 1934 to 1944. He was a member of the conservative Auténtico Party, which was opposed to the more radical reforms proposed by Fidel Castro and other revolutionaries.

Mañach died in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 1961, just a few years before the Cuban Revolution would change the political landscape of his homeland.
