Martín Fierro (1924–27) obtained a distinguished position amid the avant-garde journals booming in the 1920s Argentina, more specifically in Buenos Aires. It was led by Evar Méndez, even though in 1925 Oliverio Girondo, Eduardo J. Bullrich, Sergio Piñero, and Alberto Prebisch also participated in its direction. Great Argentinean writers, such as Girondo himself, Ricardo Molinari, Leopoldo Marechal, and Jorge Luis Borges, among others, were contributors of its pages; and this include artists such as Emilio Pettoruti, Xul Solar, and Norah Borges. Martín Fierro ceased to exist when the managing group—upon facing the political candidacy of Hipólito Yrigoyen to the nation’s presidency—was split between those who proposed to introduce politics into the journal’s pages and those who refused. This internal bickering caused the folding of the publication. It should be noted that Martín Fierro was read at that time as the representative of the "avant-garde" in Argentina.
The book Exposición de la actual poesía Argentina [Exposition of the current Argentinean Poetry] (1927) includes texts from 46 poets (Borges, Girando, Norah Lange, Molinari, among others), classified by the book organizers—Pedro Juan Vignale and César Tiempo (A.K.A. Israel Zeitlin)—as representatives of the "diverse nuclei close to the new literary generation," which they considered to have started in 1922, as read in the publication’s foreword titled Justificación [Justification]. Likewise, the book also presents, as brief introductions and under the title "Situación del lector" [Positioning the reader], six texts of authorship galore: "Estética" [Aesthetics] by Leopoldo Lugones (see document 731255); "Paralelo" [Paralell] by Rafael de Diego; "1907–1922" by Julio Noé; "Poesía" [Poetry] by Ricardo Güiraldes (see document 732842); "Qué entiendo por poesía lírica" [What do I understand by lyric poetry] by Tomás Allende Iragorri; "La extrema izquierda" [The far left] by Roberto Mariani (see document 747430); and "Rol de Martín Fierro en la renovación poética actual" [The role of Martin Fierro in the current poetical renewal] by Evar Méndez. This nucleus seeks to mention and confront different points of view regarding contemporary poetry through the words of important representatives of the Argentinean intellectual circles of that time.
