During the l870’s the Peruvian government with some of the new wealth obtained from the guano trade with Europe began to develop all aspects of Peruvian cultural life. Secondary and University academic programs, the National Library, the National Museum and the State Press are some of the institutions that were improved and expanded during this time. Lima boasted of no less than 6 newspapers, 8 cultural and literary magazines and the first cultural societies, some of which focused on the plight of the native Indians and the terrible living situations of the working class. Even the literary “tertulias” ( such as the famous ones organized by Juana Manuela Gorriti) which served as vehicles to present young authors to a new public grew in number and intensity. Peruvian authors, such as the famous Ricardo Palma, began to publish in Lima and in Europe their most important literary works.
