Spain and America in Antonio Machado's Early Prose
Traditionally, the work of Spanish poet Antonio Machado (Sevilla, 1875 – Collioure, 1939) has been seen as an evolutionary process, from his more introspective first texts to his socially and politically engaged later works. However, Machado’s social and political concerns can already be found in his very first publications, that is, in the articles that appeared in the newspaper “La Caricatura” (“The Caricature”) in 1893. These rich, but rarely studied, satirical articles will be the subject of my presentation, which will focus on the author’s reflection on the development of Spain as a modern nation and its relationship to the American colonies in the aftermath of the celebrations of the four hundredth anniversary of Columbus’ arrival in the Americas.
