Leopold Lugones--Selected Writings

Leopoldo Lugones
Edited by Gwen Kirkpatrick

Library of Latin America

Here is a collection of stories, political writings, and literary essays by the man whom Borges called "the greatest Argentine writer. Argentina's best-known writer during his lifetime, Leopoldo Lugones's work spans many literary styles and ideological positions. He was influential as a modernist poet, as a precursor of the avant-garde, and also as the poet of Argentine nature. His short stories (Las Fuerzas Extranas: 1906) were early examples of the fantastic in Latin American fiction and influenced Borges, Quiroga, and others.
