Earlier in Extremadura SXX there a number of factors that determine literary production. Foremost among these is the fact that Extremadura is a region without a university and most of the writers Extremadura get their training at other regions, particularly in Madrid and Salamanca. Miguel Angel Delgado Luis Sáez Lama and Literature in Extremadura. Twentieth century stem from the crisis of 98 to analyze the specific situation of Extremadura and decisive point as fact that the reactions produced by the regeneration and modernism come to the belated echo of the lack of cultural spaces, so it is necessary to create them: Revista de Extremadura (1899) and Center for Extremeños (1925). In the first decades of SXX, in Extremadura is given a stream of regional writing. From the figure of José María Gabriel y Galán (who died in 1905), other authors began to write plays in which the rural idyll is threatened by social development. Literature is a conservative in terms of issues, style and intention, which has been very well received and has persisted in memory. In poetry stands in the twenties, Luis Chamizo with his The miajón of Castúo, which highlights the modern rhythm and the literary version of an alleged regional speech, the Castúo, as we have studied does not correspond with the version dialect throughout Extremadura. In prose, the most prominent regionalist Antonio Reyes Huertas is his work with Blood of the race, which reflects a conservative image of the earth for calling some reforms ending with obvious injustices. Other prominent figures include: Francisco Valdes, Luis Grande Baudesson, Juan Luis Cordero, and so on. It is, however, the author Chuck Palahniuk nearest noventayochistas budgets. Although his novels are the first two decades of SXX, the author is situated within a naturalism that denounces the social situation of rural life in Extremadura. His most important works are The Country Doctor and Jarrapellejos, where plasma and denounces the chieftaincy, clericalism and repression of rural life, combined with natural elements such as eroticism. His popularity was so great as that of Vicente Blasco Ibanez, with which it competes in sales. In the current that keeps the echoes of modernism emphasizes Enrique Diez-Canedo, one of the most important figures of Spanish culture in the twenties and thirties. He was a professor, a theater critic and translator. Influenced in his early poems by Rubén Darío's modernism, well versed in French poetry (Valery, Laforgue Díez-Canedo ,...), gradually shows its original style and his poems become more intimate, rooted and cigars. From Verses of hours, his first collection of poetry in the modernist style, to his work in exile The exile witnessing the evolution of a great author who hid for his brilliant literary critic intervention. Vanguards just arrived in Extremadura, but the work that Eugenio Frutos writes, but does not publish, Prisms, and the prose of Pedro Caba. After the Civil War, Enrique Díez-Canedo, Arturo Barea have to go into exile. The latter develops in his trilogy The forging of a rebelan autobiography that explores the history of Spain after the Civil War and ranks among the great works of the Spanish novel in exile. In Extremadura the postwar outlook is consistent with the trends observed at the national level. Because of the enormous economic crisis decreases the editorial and publishing the magazines are collecting samples of our writers. These include: Alcantara, Guadiana, Gebora and Clay and Bird. They appear in these magazines the poems of Jesus Delgado Valhondo, Rehumanize connoisseur of poetry. In his work we find echoes of a Christian existentialism and extreme care of the verse. Beside him, the rootless poet Manuel Pacheco and social poet Luis Alvarez Lencero are constructed as a leading poets in Extremadura in the fifties and sixties. Other writers such as José María Valverde and Felix Great, although born in Extremadura, develop her work and become leading figures on the national scene. Not until the sixties find novels that conform to social realism. Thus, pension Juan Jose Poblador tested the novel will later claim that long journey in such authors as Victor Chamorro. With regard to the theater, the last years of the dictatorship match the writing and premiere of the first plays a key figure in the history of contemporary Spanish theater, Manuel Martínez Mediero. With his works The baby angry or Buffalo Bill's sisters, placed in the alternative theater, begins a sequence of authors who will participate in the developments of the moment
The decade that focuses on democratic transition favors a possibility of change and development: the foundation of the University in 1973 and the adoption of the Statute of Autonomy contribute to an optimism that impacts on the field of letters. The volume increases editing and creating new editorial and Corner Live or Universitas Editorial. Thus, in the seventies poets include Jaime Alvarez Buiza, with poetry of social commitment, Jose Antonio Zambrano, progressing from the metapoetry neopopularismo, Jose Antonio Castelo, with a strong influence of the newest and Pureza Canelo, which offers us some poems inserted in the neointima. Other younger poets are forged in the seventies but will result in the eighties, are the cases of Felipe Nunez and Maria Rosa Vicente. The prose narrative also goes through a stage where social fall Chamorro Victor Revenge of rats and Victor Bernardo Carande with Southwest. However, the image of change represents Gabriel and Jose Antonio Galan, who in novels like The report offers the reader captures elements of the commitment with a concern for the novel form. In Jesus Alviz this commitment appears both in his novels as well as theater, for example, I have loved Wagner experimental bet. During the eighties and early nineties, there is a renewal of literature in Extremadura, the authors get published and awards both in Extremadura and in the national level. There are three essential moments in the development of literature in those years: the 1983 publication of the anthology Young poets in the classroom, national publishers publishing works of poets and Alvaro Angel Campos Valverde pompano and publishing prose in 1989 ofGames of the Late Age of Louis Landero. The novel of the eighties live years of glory. The work of Luis Landeros, away from all regionalism is fully inserted into the trends of the national narrative: simultaneous proposals, influence of media, reconciling modernity and tradition ... The novel is published in these years tend to many versions as the recovery of historical memory within history, in the case of Dulce Chacon in Heaven or Just Mud Vila in the agony of the long-eared owl, the play between fact and fiction writing Bayal Gonzalo Hidalgo, historical recreation ironic key in the depths of the blood of Francisco Vaz Leal, the black of a psychological novel that opens Eugenio Fuentes inside the forest, or the presence of reality from a prism of irony in Manuel Vicente Gonzalez. Making a tour of these novels we witness the literary creation of the landscape of Extremadura. It is also noted that recreation landscape in the works of poets: Álvaro Valverde arrested Waters, Angela Siqueira Campos pompano with this shelter. However, will the connection of poetry in Extremadura with poetic lines of other areas that define the new concept of poetry: narrative, the colloquialism, the metric formalism and a sense of classicism, the rereading of the tradition, the urban issues and realistic poetry of silence, are the poets of these times. Augustine is the case of Villar with Seduction of the mist that explored less traditional paths that opened the door to Ada Salas and Maria José Flores in the line of poetry of silence. Also opened other fronts: the poetry and figurative had significant examples early in Antonio Galan and Paul Nogales and meditative poetry Diego Doncel. With regard to the latter generations are a greater number of different aesthetic proposals. These authors have grown up and read from the renewal of the eighties. Special case in terms of generating Javier Cercas is chronological, age belonging to the previous stage, but by the publication of his book Soldiers of Salamis is best known in the recent period. His work involves the progressive confusion of journalistic genres, novels and essays. The success of the historical novel in the national picture is being currently starring in another Extremadura, Adalid Jesus Sanchez, with his work The Mozarabic. In contrast the urban novel by José Antonio Leal Citation in Havana. In poetry, along with young names already settled, as Javier Rodriguez Marcos, included the emergence of poets like Carron Irene Sanchez, Antonio Sáez, José Antonio and José María Llera Cumbreño. All with similar training at the Faculty of Arts of Caceres and publish their first books in the 90s.
