    TOPIC DESCRIPTORS
Synopsis

This article by Luis Emilio Soto critiques Argentinean “ultraísmo” [Ultraism]: its poetics, its self-presentation as “avant-garde art”, its relation to the aesthetic approach of the Spanish poet Ramón Gómez de la Sera, the creator of “greguerías” (defined by the author as metaphor humor) and its consequences for the literary field. 

Annotations

La Campana de Palo [The Wooden Bell] published its first six editions between June and December 1925. Following a time in which the journal was not published, it reappeared in September 1926 with a contiguous enumeration, although using a different format and with the subtitle Periódico Mensual. Bellas Artes y Polémica [Monthly Journal: Fine Arts and Controversy]. In this second phase that lasted until September–October 1927, 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, also known by the pseudonym Atalaya, or At.
