Republican Constellations

A Reflection by José Bergamín

M. Carmen Domínguez Gutiérrez    Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia, Italia    



This note reflects on the need to reevaluate labels that protagonists of Spanish republican cultural life gave to themselves. Reasons provided by Bergamín, one of its protagonists, dismantle the importance of a famous act in Seville that canonised only a part of the actors of that cultural moment. Furthermore it allows us to understand that using those labels expands the composition of an heterogeneous group who worked together in a new political project to modernise the country. The time has come to become to realize that the nomenclature still used is the product of literary historiography, strongly politicised by a dictatorial state.
