  • Atlantis


  • L'Atlàntida (Atlantis) is a literary magazine in Catalan. It began publishing almost 20 years after the appearance of the great Catalan epic poem of the same name by Jacint Verdaguer, who won special honors at the Jocs Florals for the work and by it consolidated La Renaixença, the Catalan renaissance of the 19th century. The magazine reflects the evolution from Renaixença to Modernism. Between 1896 and 1900, when publication ceased, 169 issues appeared. The magazine was published on the 1st and 15th of each month rather than strictly fortnightly. The founders of the magazine were Anton Busquets, Lluís Viola, and Joan Tarré, but it also was promoted by Verdaguer, who collaborated on the first issues. Other collaborators and promoters were Marian Escriu, Ferran Agulló, and Jacint Capella. L'Atlàntida is part of a set of literary magazines that came out after La Renaixensa and L'Avenç (The Advance), with the aim of promoting the use of Catalan and encouraging patriotism at a time when bourgeois society favored Modernism. Other magazines of this type were Revista de Catalunya (1896-97) and Catalònia (1898-1900). The Biblioteca de Catalunya has a complete collection of these publications, which are available through its web portal. Presented here is the first issue of the magazine, dated May 15, 1896.
