This paper reconstructs and examines the participation in public life of the
Chilean writer Francisco Bilbao during the early years of his political exile in
the Argentine provinces (1857-1859). Its objective is to make a contribution
to the studies on Bilbao and on political exile by considering the reasons that
led him to choose that fate and examining the conditions that allowed him
to play a relevant role in the press and in the associative movement despite
being a political exile with revolutionary backgrounds and radical ideas. To
that end, the characteristics of the society that welcomed him and his family,
as well as the intellectual and political ties he wove are considered.
