A two-volume edition that aims to demonstrate that in the first decades of the 20th century there were far more memorable poets than those that are generally known. The first volume includes texts by twenty poets, from Fernando Fortún to Rafael Porlán. The second volume gathers the most representative of another twenty-three, from Guillermo de Torre to Ramón Gaya. It also includes a study of each of the authors that places them in their context, along with a list of their poetic work and a bibliography.
Undoubtedly, this edition constitutes one of the most serious and committed attempts to regenerate a part of Spanish poetic history that was in oblivion and that was eclipsed by the next generation, the generation of ‘27.
The anthologist of these volumes is José Luis García Martín (Aldeanueva del Camino, Cáceres, 1950), poet, literary critic and professor at the University of Oviedo, who also wrote a fantastic prologue about the anthology and the choices behind these volumes.
