Abstract: For almost half of the last century, Spanish impressions of African realities were restricted to the territory of Morocco. The Canarian writer Agustín Miranda Junco with his Cartas de la Guinea (1940) expands the Spanish African vision, based on the prejudices of the time about the idea of empire disseminated by Franquismo. However, a closer look at the text gives us the ability to articulate a theory about an idea that draws on the sources of insular tradition and moves away from the speeches of the time. We believe that Miranda chose Lancelot 28o-7o(1929) as one of his main models. This book, written by Agustín Espinosa, his friend and fellow member of the Surrealist Faction of Tenerife, is defined by the author as a tourist guide of the island of Lanzarote, which was replaced by Lancelot.
