Chapter Summary

This chapter investigates what happens to deep intellectual convictions derived from the north-Atlantic modernists, when the Spanish-speaking Atlantic is integrated into the account of the origins of modernism. In turn, it sets out the hypothesis of an overarching narrative of the origins of Atlantic modernism that integrates the Spanish-speaking world. At the core of the chapter lies a discussion about commonality over a wide geographical area and the extent to which similar but not necessarily identical characteristics in art, literature, and thought throughout the north-west Atlantic and the Spanish-speaking world can be meaningfully connected and traced. The key concern here is with exploring whether and how one can reasonably discern and describe such a commonality. A major issue is the significance and role of demonstrable divergences, that is, contextualised differences in artistic effect in relation to this commonality.

Keywords: commonality; geographical area; origins of Atlantic modernism; Spanish-Speaking world
