Margaret Randall moved from the United States to Mexico in the 1960s and married the Mexican poet Sergio Mondragón, with whom she edited the journal EL CORNO EMPLUMADO. She involuntarily gave up her American citizenship and eventually lived in Cuba, Nicaragua, and spent time in North Vietnam during the last months of the U.S. war in that country. Sergio Mondragón is considered the most notable representative of the Beat movement in Mexico.
