The Xeración Galaxia (Galaxy Generation) were a group of Galician language writers centred on the Editorial Galaxia (founded 1950)[1] which was established to publish and translate modern texts that would develop Galician national literature.[2] The name echoes that of the 1920s intellectual group Xeración Nós ("Generation We Ourselves") who promoted Galacian culture in the 1920s.[3] [4]
