Wishing to offer a balance of the 60’s and its influences in the following decade, this work goes deep into the poetic art of every tendency and manages to tune our peculiar cultural, artistic and political situation with the artistic international panorama.
Between the positivist information and the phenomenological obsession to return to the works themselves, Marchán Fiz exceeds every sociologism like social realism, showing the methodological difficulties of the moment and the esthetic stimuli in his analysis of the figures of the modern thing and in his concern about the artistic languages.
The text, that would become the authenticator of the "new thing" and, is now a classic essay on the tackled period,  presents an epilogue about the "postmodern" sensibility along with several reproductions and an anthology of texts, which allow to check the numerous oscillations experienced by the taste.
