The vision of a new Spain obsessed with the Generation of 1898, but this unanimity split when cause and remedy were sought. Some preached reform through the regeneration of Spanish values, other through Europeanization--an infiltration of modern though and culture from Europe.
It is the purpose of this thesis to learn by a study of the works of the leading essayists what each considered the cause of Spain's decadence and what remedy each thought the best medicine for the malady.
