Stone and Sky (movement)

Stone and sky (Spanish: Piedra y cielo) was a Colombian literary movement that appeared in 1939 and whose name is taken from the title of a 1919 poetry book published by Juan Ramón Jiménez. Members of this literary movement were often called piedracielistas.

The movement corresponds to a generation of writer born between 1910 and 1915. There was no formal manifesto or school for the movement.

Characteristics of this group were, among many others, hypersensitivity, and emotion and insolence against consecrated and canonized forms.

Juan Lozano y Lozano was a prominent critic of the movement.
