Writing Revolution

This chapter explores the editorial strategies of the anarcho-syndicalist Jesús González Malo who focused on (1) print protest, (2) popular empowerment, (3) documentation of Spanish anarchism, and (4) rearticulation of revolution and how anarchist contributors supported such goals with literary genres. For example, poet Alfonso Camín denounced Franco’s political repression with Spanish literary icons; José Castilla Morales empowered workers in U.S. exile with antifascist popular plays; Miguel Giménez Igualada published several manuscripts contesting misrepresentations of anarchism; and Félix Martí Ibáñez called for a harmonious engagement with others as a way to spark everyday revolutions. In the case of exiled anarchists publishing in España Libre, their clear awareness of master narratives marked the periodical’s antifascist literary legacy, which went beyond anarchist circles.
