Costa Rica

In literature, writers like Aquileo Echeverría and Fabián Dobles have stood out by their imprint of realistic and folkloric shades. In the late 19th century, realism and literature of manners emerge with Joaquín García Monje (1881-1958) and Manuel González Zeledón (1864-1936). Jenaro Cardona and Carmen Lyra give realism a social orientation. In modernism stand out Roberto Brenes Mesén, Rafael Cardona and Asdrúbal Villalobos.
