Los corresponsales mexicanos de Ricardo Palma: estrechando lazos entre Peru y México

Abstract : This article examines the letters sent by the Peruvian Ricardo Palma (1833-1919) to Mexican writers. From these professional writings, unlike letters to family and friends, we try to make known what links they had with Vicente Riva Palacio, Francisco Sosa, Luis González Obregón and the publisher Victoriano Agüeros. Ricardo Palma, this beggar librarian as he was qualified in his country, is guided by the desire to reconstitute the collections of the National Library of Peru, a vocation for ancient and foreign books, which distinguishes him from the disinterest of the post-war generation (1883), desirous of making a clean slate of the past to embark on Modernity, uprooted from Spain. Efforts in favour of reconstruction and international cultural communication are perceptible in the letters addressed to the four Mexican intellectuals, although distance and mutual ignorance have not enabled lasting relations to be established between Peruvian and Mexican authors.
