The article touches upon the peculiarities of the archetype figurativeness appearance in Spanish poetry of the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries. The article starts with brief coverage of the theoretical aspect of the topic - analysis of the Agonism conception, which is concerned with a new type of a hermit in the Spanish literature. The research takes up the main character of a famous Spanish poet Unamuno - a suffering Warior-messiah, an Agonist or a Wanderer. A Wanderer is Unamuno’s original concept, which has archetypical features and peculiarities in its deepened world view. The reasonings and the conclusions of the work are based on critical and literary studies of recent years, and works of both famous and little known poets of the modern age.
