    NAME DESCRIPTORS
Synopsis

This article is a critique of Martín Fierro magazine for “having railed against the fact that none of our newspapers reported on Rainer’s death,” while that same publication did not take notice of the death of the Argentinean “poet” Gustavo Riccio, even though all the “newer papers of Buenos Aires” did so. The article supposes that the absence of this event from its pages is owed to the fact that the aforementioned poet was not part of the magazine’s “clique.” 

Annotations

La Campana de Palo [The Wooden Bell] published its first six editions between June and December 1925. After a lapse in publication, the magazine reappeared in September 1926 with a contiguous enumeration, although using a different format and with the subtitle Periódico Mensual. Bellas Artes y Polémica [Monthly Newspaper. Fine Arts and Controversy.] This second period [of publication] lasted until September-October 1927; within it, eleven issues were published.   La Campana de Palo was one of the main publications for the dissemination of the ideas belonging to the anarchist group led by Alfredo Chiabra Acosta.
