The objective of this article is to provide a reevaluation of Rosa Arciniega’s (1903–1999) literary work in Spain throughout the 1930s. While her work is currently labelled as ‘social literature’, the present study will argue that this label is reductive and does not take into account the complexities, contradictions and transformations of her work. As this article will show, Arciniega sought to represent and express modernity in its most varied facets by focusing on three different areas: social denunciation, renewal of literary expression, and an appeal to romantic sentimentality. This study seeks to shed light on Arciniega’s immersion in time and the consequent grim diagnosis of modernity which led her from left-wing radicalism to more conservative positions. Formal experimentation will be seen as a key part of her literary trajectory.

This book offers a critical reinterpretation of the Spanish avant-garde, focusing on narrative, transculturality, and intermediality. Narrative, because it prioritizes the analysis of prose over poetry, against the traditional use of critical literature on the subject up to this point. Transculturality, because the Spanish avant-garde simply cannot be understood without the acknowledgement of its multi-linguistic reality and the transnational scope of the experience of Modernism in Europe – of which Spain was an integral yet underexposed component. And intermediality, because the interrelations of painting, photography, film, and literature articulate a correlation and mutual affect among different media, creating a rich cultural tapestry that needs to be addressed.
