The Wonderful World of Advertising in Gente Vieja

The magazine Gente Vieja, as the title might suggest, took pride in being a platform for an older generation of writers, at a time when a new wave of modernist literary and artistic styles, associated with the younger generation, were very much in vogue. Far from trying to compete with these younger writers, the contributors to Gente Vieja made a feature of their seniority, with the first issue proudly stating the age of the writer alongside their name.

Some notes on the phenomenon of the Correspondencia Administrativa

The Correspondencia Administrativa section, found in many Spanish magazines of the late nineteenth century, was the magazine staff’s most convenient way of responding to letters from subscribers and hopeful contributors. Replies were perfunctory and saved both the time and postage/stationary costs involved in responding via private, individual correspondence.

Judith's Review of Reviews: Germinal

The Spanish Left of 1898 were angry young men, and the newspaper Germinal lays bare that anger. Stemming from the economic and social inequalities which pervaded Spanish society, the contributors to Germinal did not hold back when it came to speaking their minds, and did not hesitate to reproduce controversial writings from other countries. The newspaper can be characterised by a spirit of rebellion against established values, with anarchists lauded, feminists praised, and the monarchy criticised.
