The aim of this research is to study the informal channels of communication built by Domingo del Monte, and the circle of authors around him, during the transition from the Ancien Régime to liberalism, in order to spread their identity project out from Havana, through the island of Cuba and into the Iberian Peninsula. This group was made up of both intellectuals and members of the Havana sugar oligarchy. Their purpose was to work for a better position for the island within the framework of the Spanish liberal state in construction throughout the first decades of the nineteenth century. Due to censorship, the faction could not use political speech making to achieve its aims. This meant that the group had to look for an alternative way to express its ideas, and literature became the weapon.
