SUBERCASEAUX S, Bernardo. Chile is my Second Country: The heroic vanguard and nationalist reception. Atenea (Concepc.) [online]. 2010, n.501, pp. 53-71. ISSN 0718-0462. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-04622010000100004.
This article examines the relation of constitutive opposition between the nationalism that permeated Chilean culture from 1900 to 1930, and Huidobro´s heroic avant-garde, with its characteristics of vehement non-conformism, which are present in his aesthetics and manifestos of the period. At the heart of this opposition lies an accelerated process of modernization and change, a process that implies, on one hand, tradition and social integration, and, on the other, everything that is new, from art to film to aviation.
