Rafael del Riego dans la poésie de circonstance du Triennat libéral

Abstract : In 1820, with the Cadix Constitution being re-established, politics invaded all fields, including poetry. Many verses written then have since disappeared. But those that can be recovered have great value for understanding the evolution of a public opinion they intended to craft, and they in fact reflected. Poems dedicated to Riego, who in the course of four years fell from grace to the scaffold, are particularly meaningful from that point of view. They permit to see how the general’s followers elaborated a highly efficient public relations system which quickly owned him the huge popularity he experimented whereas, even before the reestablishment of Ferdinand VII as an absolute monarch, in 1823, serviles charged him with all imaginable crimes, and called not only for him to be executed, but for his body to be skinned.
