The 30s

The 30s are becoming a point of convergence for this (k)new book I'm writing. Lorca's duende lecture, his Diván del Tamarit, the earliest writing of María Zambrano, date from this decade, when modernism in its historic phase was ending and something else was taking its place. This something else is what I call late modernism, the long aftermath of the modernist movement. I'd say we are still in this aftermath.
