Literary supplements and journals of opinion have always played a major role in the shaping of Hispanic culture. They have served as gathering points to catalyze transnational artistic moods, crystallize current political opinions, and promote intellectual trends which would otherwise never reach the largest segment of the population. They also function as ideological galaxies in which secondary voices endlessly rotate around an imperious dictatorial figure, making them temples of adoration and sacrifice in which to pay tribute to a caudillo and, simultaneously, from which to orchestrate fanciful battles to debunk the enemy. By the same token, their autocratic editors use them as springboards for their own personal and artistic purposes.
