Buenos Aires y Ciudad de México, a principios del siglo XX: ¿Cosmópolis?

By Miguel Rodríguez


In order to compare the two great capitals that, at the beginning of the twentieth century, are Buenos Aires and Mexico City, it is necessary first to review the features that define certain cities as cosmopolitan: their size and their position as capital, the appearance that make them bright and attractive, their diverse populations and the multicultural mixtures that converge in them. Second, this text analyzes how, in the passage to the twentieth century, the characterization of the cosmopolitan, as well as the interest shown in literature in this period, can be valued – or criticized, in a context of nation building in both territories – by the great cities that are then called Cosmopolis
