Publishers such as Adolfo Carrillo, who had opposed Diaz with his El Correo del Lunes (The Monday Mail), crossed the border, hoping to smuggle their papers back into Mexico. Carrillo ended up in San Francisco, where he established La Republica (The Republic) in 1885, and remained there for the rest of his life. Carrillo became so identified with the Hispanic tradition in California that he set his short stories in California's Hispanic past. Notwithstanding Carrillo's example, most of the exiled Mexican literati of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries eventually returned to Mexico when the environment was once again safe for their respective political ideologies.

The 728-page text was a veritable storehouse of information about accomplished Cubans in all fields of endeavor, many of whom resided in exile. The dictionary complemented the efforts of newspapermen and creative writers who were actively writing their nation's colonial history and independent future. Writers such as Francisco Sellen not only attacked Spaniards in their prose and poetiy, but also lay down a mythic and ideological background on which to construct their nation's culture. In his published play Hatuey (1891), Sellen (like Varela in Jicotencal) identified Cubans with the indigenous past by writing about the last rebel Amerindian chief in Cuba and building on Bartolome de Las Casas' documentation of Spanish inhumanity during the Conquest.

Many of the writers to follow in the next century and a half became steeped in that tradition, building on the work of their predecessors, who used their literary art to promote their political causes. Exile writers also influenced immigrant and native writers. To this date, some of the commonplace aspects of exile literature remain, even among the most recent exile writers from Central America and Cuba. In general, the literature of exile is centered on the homeland, la patria, rather than on the fate of the exile community in the United States.
