Leftist Culture, Gender, and Revolutionary Violence, 1900–1920
This chapter looks at the prolific supply of cultural productions by anarchists in Puerto Rico, including novels, plays, poetry, and short stories. In particular, the chapter focuses on two overriding themes: gender and the role of violence or violent imagery in bringing forth a new era. Many leftists who joined the Partido Socialista (PS) or took more mainstream approaches to the island's politics likewise followed anarchist-inspired interpretations of these themes. The focus on cultural productions illustrates that the left wing of the PS and the anarchists understood their reality and their visions for a future Puerto Rico in similar terms. These friendly relations between anarchists and PS members continued throughout much of the 1910s.
