Blanco-Fombona and Hispanic Cultural Unity

The Venezuelan Blanco-Fombona championed the Hispanic cause. A writer of novels, short stories, poetry, essays, and editorials, and a critic, Blanco-Fombona worked for unity among the Hispanic nations and fought against “yankee imperialism.” He felt that despite national differences, Hispanic cultural unity is based in their common language, Spanish race, literary tradition, religion, philosophy of life, conquistador heritage, and common enemy.
