The editorial categories are research topics that have guided researchers during the recovery phase and continue to be the impetus behind the Documents Project’s digital archive and the Critical Documents book series. Developed by the project’s Editorial Board, each of the teams analyzed this framework and adapted it to their local contexts in developing their research objectives and work plans during the Recovery Phase.

This article announces the upcoming publication of the book Exposición de la actual poesía argentina (1922 –1927) [An Exhibition of Contemporary Argentinean Poetry], compiled by Pedro Juan Vignale and César Tiempo. The text also reproduces some poems by the aforementioned writers.
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 constituted one of the broadcasting organs for anarchist ideas of the group headed by Alfredo Chiabra-Acosta, also known by the pseudonym Atalaya, or At.
The Exposición de la actual poesía Argentina (1927) brings together 46 poets that the book’s organizers felt were representative of “the different groups and outliers of the new literary generation.” They consider 1922 to be the milestone of this new generation. The book’s year of publication also coincides with the last year of Martín Fierro magazine; the latter had been one of the key publications for the dissemination of the ideas of the Argentinean avant-garde.
