The 1837 generation (Spanish: Generación del '37) was an Argentine intellectual movement named after the date a literary hall with most of its members was established. Influenced by the new romantic ideas, they rejected the cultural Spanish heritage of the country. They did not acknowledge any national roots in the indigenous peoples or the period of European colonization, focusing instead on the Revolution as the birth of the country, as it gave them freedom, the possibility to behave as free people. They considered themselves "sons of the May Revolution", they were born shortly after it, and wrote some of the earliest Argentine literary works.

  • Die Generación del 37 (deutsch Generation von 1837) war ein Zusammenschluss von Intellektuellen in der Region des Río de la Plata. Dabei handelte es sich um eine Gruppe junger Männer, welche die spätere geschichtliche Entwicklung Argentiniens beeinflussten und deren Ziel es war, mit einem nicht idealisierenden Problembewusstsein eine Modernisierungsstrategie für die neu entstandene Republik zu schaffen. Der Name der Generación del 37 hatte seinen Ursprung in dem im Mai 1837 vom Uruguayer (1809–1897) in Buenos Aires gegründeten, auch als Asociación de la Joven Generación Argentina oder Asociación de Mayo bekannten literarischen Salon (Salón Literario). Ein Großteil der Mitglieder lebte im uruguayischen und chilenischen Exil. (de)

They considered themselves "sons of the May Revolution", they were born shortly after it, and wrote some of the earliest Argentine literary works. The group established a literary hall in 1837 in Buenos Aires, hence the name. This Salón Literario closed six months after it was created because of the reiterated warnings from the government. Initially, they claimed to be neutral in the Argentine Civil Wars, they wrote works biased against the federal governor Juan Manuel de Rosas (such as El Matadero by Esteban Echeverría or Facundo by Domingo Faustino Sarmiento) because Rosas was the Buenos Aires government of that time, but they were also against the former Unitarian governments, with whom they didn't agree in their absolutist manners that were considered by them as a mere restoration of the manners of the Spanish colony. Their efforts to install a full democratic Republic and guarantee civil rights by means of a peaceful propaganda were vain and shortly after that they ended up exiled or assassinated. After Rosas was overthrown in 1852, their writings inspired the first Argentine Constitution in 1853, and their persons promoters of the Organización Nacional, the articulation and organization of the political divisions, infrastructure and institutions of the country, that in its final form didn't was federal nor unitarian but a balance of both. They were called "unitarians" in a loose sense and by Rosas propaganda. Some notable members of this generation were Esteban Echeverría, Juan Bautista Alberdi, Juan María Gutiérrez, Domingo Faustino Sarmiento who was president between 1868 and 1874, , Bartolomé Mitre, Andrés Lamas, , Vicente Fidel López, Carlos Tejedor, , Florencio Varela, , José Mármol, José Rivera Indarte (Buenos Aires), , , (San Juan), Benjamín Villafañe, (Tucumán), Francisco Álvarez, , Enrique Rodríguez, , (Córdoba), Juan Thompson (Corrientes).
