The Articles of Mariano José de Larra are the consequence of two events of the nineteenth century. The rise of the press and the rise of romanticism. Like many romantic authors, Larra combined his journalistic and literary activities with his interest in politics. He was a committed writer in the most modern and complete sense of the term.
Larra cultivated different literary genres, but is best known for his journalistic articles, written under the pseudonym of Figaro or El pobrecito hablador. His journalistic activity can be classified into articles of customs, literary articles and political articles.
Larra suffered perhaps more than other intellectuals, the clash between ideal and reality. He lived in the first half of the nineteenth century, survived the death of absolutism embodied in the figure of Fernando VII.
Some of the authors of the generation of 98, identified with him, for his way of feeling intensely the evils of his country, his idealism and also his pessimism. Larra was not only a romantic writer, but also a modern man. He always wanted Spain to abandon economic and cultural backwardness and chose as a medium his journalistic articles where he denounced all kinds of abuses.
Larra decided to edit his articles and classified them into dramatic, literary, political and customs, but warned that his purpose was to maintain chronological order to better reflect the time, since he was a witness and chronicler of his time.

In the press I had my imagination not many mornings, looking for a new topic on which to let my daring boneless run freely, which already asked me for conversation, and perhaps I would never have found it except for the chance that I will tell; And I say that I would not have found it, because among so many notes and notes as in my desk I have crowded, perhaps two alone will contain things that can be said, or that should not be stopped for now.
I have a nephew, and let’s move on, that this has nothing particular. This nephew is a bait who has received an education of the most chosen that in this our century are usually given; that is to say that he knows how to read, although not in all books, and to write, although not things worthy of being read; Counting is not a major thing, because he neglects the story of his accounts in his creditors, who better than him know how to take them; dances as a disciple of Veluci; he sings what is enough to make himself beg and never be in his voice; he rides a horse like a centaur, and it gives joy to see with what ease and ease he runs over his friends and acquaintances through those streets of Madrid; of sciences and arts ignores enough to be able to talk about everything with mastery. In matters of beautiful literature and theater, do not speak, because you are subscribed, and if you do not understand comedy, for that you pay it, and even whistle it; In this way he implies that he has seen better things in other countries, because he has traveled abroad as a well-bred. He speaks a little [su poco] French and Italian whenever he had to speak Spanish, and Spanish does not speak it, but mistreats it; to that he says that the Spanish language is his own and that he can do with it what comes most to him in will. Of course he does not believe in God, because he wants to pass for a man of lights; but, instead, he believes in chalanes and girls, in friends and in ruffians. I forgot: let’s not talk about his pundonor, because this is such that, for the slightest trifle, about whether they looked at him, about whether they did not look at him, he puts a lunge in the heart of his best friend with the most singular grace and ease that in wielding any has known.
