This volume brings together essays that analyze different literary genres in their relationship with the journalistic space, and the transformations that both systems have undergone during the 19th and 20th centuries. It reflects on poetry with a scientific theme, political satire, rhetorical strategies in the literary columns of Justo Sierra, Heriberto Frías or Guillermo Prieto, but also on headers, graphic humor and commercial advertisements as carriers of visual and verbal discourses. The battle against the censorship of comics such as Pepín or the study of post-revolutionary propaganda coexist with the appropriation of genres and successful journalistic practices in Europe and the United States: sensationalism, reportage, autobiographical writing, the fantasy genre.
