Luego Altamirano y Sarlo analizan obras fundamentales de Sarmiento, como Facundo y Recuerdos de provincia. Y se detienen en los debates del Centenario, cuando, para el zone letrado encarnado en Lugones, Gálvez y Rojas, el gaucho y los angeles carreta ya no son resabios que hay que dejar atrás, sino que se transforman en símbolos de una tradición nacional que el avance de l. a. inmigración, los angeles modernización y los angeles diversidad amenazan disolver. En los capítulos sobre l. a. vanguardia martinfierrista, los angeles revista Sur, los angeles oralidad y las lenguas extranjeras, vuelven sobre tópicos que, por su persistencia, constituyen señas de identidad, como el criollismo y los angeles polémica acerca del “idioma de los argentinos” o el impulso cosmopolita y europeizante de las élites.

Esta edición definitiva de Ensayos argentinos, libro publicado por primera vez en 1983, recupera l. a. versión ampliada de 1997, y pone a disposición de nuevos lectores una obra vital de l. a. crítica y del pensamiento sobre l. a. sociedad y l. a. literatura, sostenida en los angeles búsqueda, l. a. experimentación conceptual y el estudio revelador de los textos y movimientos fundamentales de los siglos XIX y XX.
