Reinaldo Arenas (July 16, 1943 – December 7, 1990) is a Cuban poet, playwright, and novelist, perhaps best known for the novel Farewell to the Sea (1985) and the memoir Before Night Falls (1993, later made into a movie). He escaped to the US in 1980 after two imprisonments in Cuba, and committed suicide after his health declined due to AIDS.
