Successive or The Habanera Coordinates (Sucesiva o Las Coordenadas Habaneras) is a compilation of texts by José Lezama Lima, made by Carlos Espinosa. This compilation consists of articles published in an anonymous column in the Cuban newspaper Diario de la Marina entitled “La Habana”. Possibly, some friends and his colleagues from Grupo Orígenes knew that the anonymous author of that column was José Lezama Lima. But outside that circle of people, would it be known? The authorship was publicly revealed several years later, when Lezama Lima delivered to the Central University of Las Villas the book Tratados en La Habana (1958). There, along with other essays, he collected eighty-five of those pages, under the general title of “Successive or The Habaneras Coordinates”. The order in which they appear in this compilation is not the chronological order in which they were published in the newspaper, but responds to another criterion. Nor do they have a title, but are identified with Arabic numerals. When reproducing this book in volume II of his Complete Works (Aguilar Editor, Mexico, 1977), Lezama Lima adopted the Roman numerals, which is maintained in this edition.
In 1991, José Prats Sariol prepared a volume under the title of Havana (Editorial Verbum, Madrid), in which he incorporated fourteen texts that Lezama Lima had left out. As the compiler explains in the prologue, in the writer’s archive that is in the José Martí National Library he found a folder containing the clippings of those columns, with annotations made by their author. For some reason, today difficult to explain, in that dossier there were fourteen other works, which Carlos Espinosa found when reviewing the Diario de la Marina and that come to complete the series. That is why Lezama Lima liked to call concurrent chance, “Successive or The Habaneras Coordinates” is now republished in its entirety.
