This study explores how Spanish American modernista writers incorporated journalistic formalities and industry models through the cr©?nica genre to advance their literary preoccupations. Through a variety of modernista writers, including Jos©? Mart©?, Amado Nervo, Manuel Guti©?rrez N©?jera and Rub©?n Dar©?o, Reynolds argues that extra-textual elements¿?¿such as temporality, the material formats of the newspaper and book, and editorial influence¿?¿animate the modernista movement¿?¿s literary ambitions and aesthetic ideology. Thus, instead of being stripped of an esteemed place in the literary sphere due to participation in the market-based newspaper industry, journalism actually brought modernismo closer to the writers¿?¿ desired artistic autonomy.
