Abstract

Spanish is viewed as peripheral to Modernism, even though many key figures of the movement worked and published in that very language. Ramón Gómez de la Serna, from Madrid, is one of those figures. I have translated some of his greguerías -- brief, poem-like compositions composed of metaphor and humor--into English for the first time, and written an investigation retracing Ramón's work, his role in the avant-garde, and the theory behind translating him and his greguerías.
