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 A colophon of texts has been added, including some previously unpublished prose, plus a moving and emotional letter to his granddaughter.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.

Astillas

Part of the Fundamental Works Collection, this volume comprises a varied selection of articles and brief essays by the writer Rosa Chacel (Valladolid, 1898 – Madrid, 1994), many of which have not been published to date, or featured in the corresponding volumes of her Complete Works, either because they were written prior to the publication of the same or because they have been extracted from lesser known publications dating from her time in exile.

Ana Rodríguez Fischer, writer and Professor at the University of Barcelona, was responsible for this anthology, which represents a recognition of this important writer from the generation of ’27.

Viajes. Crónicas e impresiones

Ramón Pérez de Ayala (Oviedo, 1880 – Madrid, 1962) belonged to the so-called «generation of ‘14 », who were drawn towards travelling and studying abroad, getting to know other cultures, learning from them and trying to apply what was learned to improve their own country. This volume gathers a large selection of the journalistic chronicles written for Spanish and Argentinean diaries as a result of his travels to different countries throughout Europe and America. At the same time, this volume provides insight into the life of the writer: travels that marked his intellectual training, that influenced his life; both planned travels and those that he was forced to undergo due to circumstances beyond his control.

Juan Pérez de Ayala, wrote the current anthology and preceding introduction, and is a researcher in Intellectual History from the first third of the Spanish 20th century.
