Abstract

In every issue, Plural published original works of literature, what the magazine referred to in its indexes and elsewhere as “Creation.” While there is some attempt to keep a balance between poetry and fiction, it was clear that the dominant interests of the editor Paz (and of the first managing editor Tomás Segovia) were in poetry. It is on the community of poets therefore, that we first focus our attention.
