Miguel Ángel Muro

Abstract

I try to reflect on these pages about the complex entity of poetry when is taken as a historical document and, to specify more the matter, I raise the possibility or desirability that the poetical specific works of the Spanish postwar period, as the Claudio Rodriguez’ works or the poetry called "social realism", can be taken as historiographical material, keeping in mind the benefit for the historians that this could bring and the difficulties of an adoption like this one.
