LOPEZ FORJAS, Manuel. Andrés Henestrosa’s La otra Nueva España: reflections from a friend of the republicans. Valenciana [online]. 2017, vol.10, n.19, pp.45-75. ISSN 2007-2538.

This article attempts to rescue the memories and reflections about the Spanish Republic written by the Oaxacan author Andrés Henestrosa, who lived for 102 years (he died in 2008). To offer a complete view that also helps as an introduction to his essays, in first place there will be a general comment about the ideological discussion that happened in México after the Mexican Revolution around the Hispanic attitudes in the intellectual and the literary world, trying at the same time to situate to Henestrosa in this context. In the second part of this exposition, it will be possible to perceive how the Oaxacan writer -vindicating the “mestizo” root as the most influential in the current México’s political configuration- presented a different explanation where he strove to rescue the historical roots of the Mexican people, relating them with the contributions of the Spanish Republicans that he met in his life.

Keywords : Henestrosa; Indigenism; Hispanism; Miscegenation; Spanish Republicans.
