Diario del Nuevo Mundo

“Since last night I am changed within”. This is how this unpublished diary by Juan Larrea begins. This lost prophet of the generation of ’27 is one of the great Spanish poets and essayists of the 20th century. From 1942 to 1947, following his exile from Mexico, Larrea experimented with his literary prose, merging worldwide events and the laws that governed them with his every day routine and inner feelings. This is a story between the real and the mythical, which points to a New World and is based on love and the redemption of mankind.

The book includes an introduction by the Hispanist, Gabriele Morelli and a prologue by Juan Manuel Díaz de Guereñu, Faculty Chair of Literature at the University of Deusto and a respected specialist on the author.

Castillo interior

This publication comprises unpublished texts written by León Felipe (Tábara, 1884-México D.F., 1968) that are essential for understanding one of the great poets of the 20th century and the state of exile. This work is divided in two parts, one titled « Aposentos » about the creative workshop of the pilgrim bard, lively verses and spirited discourses, the second is called « Moradas » and a revelation of heartfelt confessions revealed through different unpublished letters, among which we can highlight the correspondence with Juan Larrea, one of the most enriching testimonies about Spanish exile due to its sense of emotion and depth.

Gonzalo Santonja, Faculty Chair of the Complutense University of Madrid and Javier Expósito Lorenzo, were responsible for the collection and wrote the prologue and the anthology of this volume; the texts of which come from the Archivo Histórico Provincial de Zamora and the Residencia de Estudiantes.

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.

De lo maravilloso a lo real. Antología

La magia y el talento de uno de los maestros de lo real maravilloso y la literatura fantástica de nuestro país, Joan Perucho (Barcelona,1920-2003), están presentes en este volumen, reimpreso por la Fundación en 2020 con motivo del centenario de su nacimiento. Botánica oculta, viajes por países imaginarios, personajes de fábula, santos, cuentos de lo maravilloso, memorias, semblanzas y mucho más, se unen en este compendio de imaginación y saber que asombrará al lector. Perucho fue uno de los autores incluido en el canon de literatura fantástica de Harold Bloom.

Mercedes Monmany, crítica literaria y ensayista especializada en literatura contemporánea europea, es la antóloga este volumen que ofrece una perspectiva poliédrica de uno de los grandes de la literatura catalana y española.

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.
