We stress the importance of knowing about the political parties of the 1930s, their leaders, what they believed and what values and virtues they stood for. We study how these leaders guided Puerto Rico to then compare the political parties and leaders of today. In like manner, we stress the importance of understanding the writers who form the heart and soul of our deepest expression. By understanding the relation between their writing and the political issues of the time period, we can understand how our intellectuals thought and how they transmitted their thoughts, values and virtues to the rest of the population.
