    SM (Literat) latinized, precious and highly metaphorical style (esp 17th century)
    CULTERANISMO, CONCEPTISMO Culteranismo and conceptismo were opposing literary fashions which developed in the early 17th century in Spain. Luis de Góngora was the main exponent of culteranismo, also known as gongorismo. His poetry was very learned in style, full of metaphor, classical allusions, neologisms and deliberate syntactic playfulness. By contrast, conceptismo, as championed by Francisco de Quevedo, meant very precise, economic and rational language with complex ideas presented in a simple and succinct style. Góngora, who was much vilified in his time, and not only by Quevedo, found posthumous favour with generations of modern Spanish poets, most notably the Generación del 27.

  • 18 peronismo

    1 Peronism
    * * *
    PERONISMO General Juan Domingo Perón (1895-1974) came to power in Argentina in 1946, on a social justice platform known as justicialismo. He aimed to break Argentina's dependence on exports by developing the domestic economy through state-led industrialization. Peronismo stood for nationalization of industry, trade unions, paid holidays, the welfare state and the provision of affordable housing. Women were given the vote in 1947, a move championed by Perón's charismatic wife "Evita" (María Eva Duarte). Following her death in 1952, Perón's support began to crumble and he was driven into exile in 1955. His party was banned for almost a decade and did not regain power until 1973, when he was recalled from exile to become President. He died the following year. Peronismo as a movement has survived, and the Peronist party returned to power in 1989 under Carlos Menem.

    •• Cultural note:
    A political movement, known officially as justicialismo, named for the populist politician Colonel Juan Domingo Perón, elected President of Argentina in 1946. An admirer of Italian fascism, Perón claimed always to be a champion of the workers and the poor, the descamisados (shirtless ones), to whom his first wife Eva Duarte (`Evita') became a sort of icon, especially after her death in 1952. Although he instituted some social reforms, Perón's regime proved increasingly repressive and he was ousted in an army coup in 1955. He returned from exile to become president again in 1973, but died in office a year later. His Partido Justicialista governed Argentina again from 1989 to 1999 under President Carlos Saúl Menem
