Essays & Articles: Buenos Aires

Essays & Articles: Buenos Aires

Most of the manuscripts comprised in this section of Ramón's papers feature impressions of Buenos Aires, possibly in preparation for a new or enlarged edition of Explicación de Buenos Aires, which first appeared in Madrid in 1950, and fragments of which were included in Luisa Sofovich’s Ramón Gómez de la Serna (Ediciones Culturales Argentinas, 1962).  Featured are published clippings that reflect an optimistic, picturesque impressionism; and Ramón’s manuscript notes that, for the most part, reveal some disillusionment and distaste for an immoral and materialistic environment. Shown here are samples from a folder entitled "Buenos Aires: plano general."
