Generation of 1914 in SpainSpanish Language and Literature
Date of this Version1-1-2011
AbstractThis group of Spanish writers wrote in the period between modernism and the Generation of 1898 and the 1920s avant-garde tendencies. It has also been called novecentismo (in Catalan noucentisme) to refer to these authors' different, innovative understanding of literature and art. "1914" was chosen to label this generation because it marked the outbreak of World War I and because José Ortega y Gasset, the movement's main figure, delivered a talk that year on old and new politics.
