Washington post WWW site, viewed March 3, 2020 (in obituary dated March 2, 2020: Father Ernesto Cardenal, a Nicaraguan poet, priest and political revolutionary who wielded his pen as a weapon against two autocratic regimes--the Somoza family dynasty and the left-wing Sandinista party that took its place--died March 1 in Managua, Nicaragua's capital. He was 95. Father Cardenal, a sculptor as well as a writer, presided over a sprawling art colony, turning Solentiname into a haven for painters and spiritual seekers alike. Ernesto Cardenal Martínez was born in Granada, on the shores of Lake Nicaragua, on Jan. 20, 1925)
