Poesía y mercado cultural: la poesía española y sus antologías

Translated title of the contribution: Poetry and the cultural market: Spanish poetry and anthologies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The increase in the publication of anthologies of Spanish poetry that had begun during Franco´s dictatorship as a way of creating a literary canon reaches its high point during the democratic period, especially between 1995 and 2008. This essay examines the proliferation of anthologies of contemporary Spanish poetry from 1976 to present from the perspective of the different cultural policies deployed by individual governments and from the theoretical framework of cultural capital. Issues such as reading habits and the symbolic value of books and anthologies, the process of canonization of poets, and poetry prizes, among others, constitute the focus of this study.
