Short Stories in Spanish. Uruguayan short story writer who has been compared to Edgar Allan Poe.

Cuentos de Amor de Locura y de Muerte

Quiroga wrote over short stories. After Alicia’s death, a servant finds qiroga her pillow a grotesque animal with hairy legs, a parasitic creature, swollen from blood it had sucked from her. Horacio Quiroga was born at Salto on the River Uruguay, into a middle-class family.

In Paris he fell under the influence of the French symbolist movement and the works of Poe, although he also read extensively Chekhov and de Maupassant.

Quiroga’s diary from this period was published in Quiroga accidentally shot perrp killed his friend in while they were inspecting a gun. Quiroga became enchanted by the wild region and he spent the larger part of his life in remote jungle regions, first not in Misiones, but in Chano province, where he settled in He planted cotton but the venture failed and he abandoned the project.

Horaciio was for Quiroga a hostile element. A simple walk through a cane-brake could be exhausting: The task of crossing, difficult even on a cool day, was very hard at this hour. Mr Jones crossed it, nevertheless, swimming between the crackling dusty cane over the clay left by the floods, gasping with fatigue and the quiroba vapour of nitrates.


Both these children later killed themselves.

With his family Quiroga moved to San Ignacio, Misiones. Alone with two children, Quiroga wrote a tender collection of children’s stories.

In Quiroga returned to Buenos Aires with his children, but continued to visit his property in Misiones.

Throughout his life, Quiroga was plague by his illnesses. He suffered from mental disorder, and to dispel his bouts of tension and anxiety, he began to drink. Quiroga committed suicide by cyanide on February 19,at a Buenos Aires clinic, after he was told he had cancer. Obsession with death, human weakness, and emphasis on bizarre situations marked Quiroga’s work. Gabioso in his fatalistic stories the protagonist is struck down by a fatal accident or fights against nature, but man rarely if ever wins out: His own technique Quiroga presented in ‘Manual horwcio cuentista perfecto’stressing the need for economy and intensity.

In ‘El hombre muerto’ The Dead Man a man falls on a machete knife, he is dying, time stops, and he watches his surroundings with heightened senses. Isn’t this banana plantation his plantation? Doesn’t he come here every day to clear the ground? Who knows it as he does? But now they raiboso not moving.

It is the midday calm; soon it will probably be twelve o’clock. Three marvellous Uruguayan writers. I recommend three marvellous Uruguayan writers. First, Horacio Quiroga Despite a life – and body of work – engulfed by violent death his father was shot; he accidently killed his own friend; his stepfather, one of his wives, he himself and then both his children all committed suicideQuiroga is most widely read in Uruguay by children – especially his Cuentos de la Selva, or jungle tales.

He is one of the greatest animal writers ever. His creatures are weird, savage and utterly inexpungeable from the mind. They are also a bit like Roald Dahl’s macabre tales for adults; the writing is ruthlessly crisp and concrete. He died in penury in – though he managed for many years by playing the piano in local cinemas: He is a writer’s writer, not bothered by the need to create convincing plot, character, suspense or intrigue; an early story has among its characters an infinite horizontal line and a circumference that rolls along it.


He spent years creating his own system of shorthand, with the result that some of his work – and this would have delighted him – has never been deciphered. Juan Carlos Onetti is considered by many to be Uruguay’s finest writer. A solid modernist, he rejected the folksy and sentimental culture that romanticised nature and the gaucho, and his eloquent brand of urban despair is so well turned that it remains vibrant and readable – see The Pit QuartetThe Shipyard and A Brief Life both Serpent’s Tail.

He was an editor of Marcha, the great literary magazine dissolved by Uruguay’s military regime in the s. Despite his huge reputation, Onetti was imprisoned in a mental institution, and as soon as he was able he decamped for Spain. Like Borges the chicken inspector, or like the Cuban writer Reinaldo Arenas exiled in New York, this most distinguished citizen and former director of the national library worked in perto lowly capacity in his adopted country – as a doorman and a waiter.

Though he lived for a decade after the end of military rule, Onetti never returned to Montevideo. Publicado por Triunfo Arciniegas en 6:
