El camino es nuestro

This anthology comprises a selection of journalistic, social and humanistic articles, short essays, journals, and correspondence from these pioneering writers who were historically committed to womens’ rights.. These two women shared a deep friendship and understanding, hence being edited in the same volume. Elena Fortún ( Madrid, 1886-1952), was known for her popular children’s literature character “Celia”, while Matilde Ras ( Tarragona, 1881-1969), was considered to be the main European expert of the time in graphology although her literary talents were unknown until today.

Professor María Jesús Fraga was in charge of selecting the texts and the Faculty Chair Nuria Capdevila-Argüelles of Exeter University wrote the introduction.

Fabulaciones en prosa

When Gastón Baquero (Banes, Cuba, 1914 – Madrid, 1997) came to Spain in April 1959, he was already acclaimed within the Hispano-American literary scene. One day he would write about a classical work of world literature, the next about history then, the next day, art could be his subject. Whatever the theme, he always wrote with soul. It could be said that, watching over the science of man and his culture, Gastón Baquero was like a pastor with a humanist soul. Here, poetry and essays are innovatively combined in this book of prose that illustrates his notable creativity.

Alberto Díaz Díaz, a famous expert on Cuban poetry, has compiled these formerly unknown texts that were published in long forgotten gazettes and papers.

Poesía [Poetry]

In celebration of the centennial of the birth of José García Nieto ( Oviedo, 1914 –Madrid, 2001), the Fundación has re-edited this volume, dedicated to the poet in 1996, within the Fundamental Works Collection. A colophon of texts has been added, including some previously unpublished prose, plus a moving and emotional letter to his granddaughter. Since 1940, when he published his first book, he was present at the most diverse literary scenes. From 1943, with the publication of the magazine Garcilaso and his second book, Poesía, his name is recognised as a great example of this type of lyrical poetry, known today as “garcilasista” poetry.

The Toledo poet, Joaquín Benito de Lucas was in charge of selecting the texts in this volume dedicated to José García Nieto. 

Cortesanas, bohemios, asesinos y fantasmas

Eduardo Zamacois (Pinar del Río, Cuba, 1873 – Buenos Aires, 1971) is one of the most unknown yet exquisite writers of Spanish literature, halfway between the generation of ‘98 and the generation of ‘14. He was the founder of El Cuerpo Semanal, a journalist, filmmaker, pioneering spokesman, experienced raconteur and an expert on bohemia and horror, he was also a promoter of the Spanish culture in exile.

This volume is a compilation of the author’s best works, including theatre, stories, stories about courtiers, a section on his wonderful memoirs –El Hombre Que Se Va – , noteworthy journalistic reports and epistolaries such as the one for his nephew which reflects both his sense of humour and humanity. All of this was made possible by the Faculty Chair and Director of the Instituto Castellano Leonés de la Lengua, Gonzalo Santoja.
