Alfred A. Knopf founded the publishing house that carries his name in 1915 in New York. The publishing market was, at the time, controlled by the big publishers of the nineteenth century; thus, he took his quest for new writers to Europe. As a result, Knopf became the publisher of important writers such as Katherine Mansfield, André Gide, Sigrid Undset, Thomas Mann, and D. H. Lawrence. Focusing on Spain, he made an interesting selection of literature unknown in the United States. Very soon after, he published Pío Baroja, Blasco Ibáñez, Azorín, and Unamuno, and later in the century, he introduced Luca de Tena, Martín Descalzo, Gironella, and Juan Goytisolo among others.
