Corpus Barga, pseudonym of Andrés García de Barga y Gómez de la Serna (Madrid, 1887 - Lima, 1975), was a poet, storyteller and journalist. In his work the characteristics of authors such as Azorín, Baroja or Valle-Inclán converge with great skill without losing his own style that won him many readers in his time.
Periodismo y literatura gathers the essential core of his prose writings and includes representative fragments of his memoirs, Los pasos contados, as well as commentaries on his travels, writings on characters of the 20th century, and articles on the Second Spanish Republic and the exile in France.
Arturo Ramoneda (Puntallana, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, 1946), Professor of Language and Literature, was responsible for selecting the texts and for writing the prologue. He has published numerous articles and studies on Spanish literature, including Corpus Barga, el escritor y su siglo.
