Article / First steps of biography as a journalistic genre in Spain: typology and main features of the biographical texts in La Ilustración. Periódico Universal

Abstract /

Biography as a historic and literary genre was first introduced by the 19th century illustrated magazines. It is precisely in these magazines where biography turned into a journalistic genre because it began to respond to an informational purpose and to depict popular characters of the times. The most significant illustrated magazine was La Ilustración. Periódico Universal (1849-1857), thus it becoming the pioneer in published biographies according to informational and not only educational parameters. Through an analysis and classification of the aforementioned illustrated magazine texts, this article aims to contribute to the study of the origins of one of the most visible but least studied journalism literary genres
