Overview

Esta es la obra más representativa de Horacio Quiroga. En estos relatos, Quiroga se maneja con absoluta maestría en el terreno de la narración de terror (no en vano se lo compara con Poe y Maupassant, como se puede apreciar al leer historias tan estremecedoras como «La gallina degollada»), y nos ofrece uno de los máximos exponentes del modernismo latinoamericano. Es, también, la obra más personal de alguien cuya trágica existencia estuvo marcada tanto por el amor como por la locura y la muerte.A master of the horror story in the tradition of Poe and Maupassant, Horacio Quiroga has long been recognized as one of the greatest exponents of Latin American modernism. The blood-curling stories in this collection are amongst some of the most representative works by the Argentine playwright, poet, and short story writer, whose own life was also tragically marked by love, madness, and death.
