South American Jungle Tales

Horacio Silvestre Quiroga Forteza (31 December 1878 – 19 February 1937) was an Uruguayan playwright, poet, and short story writer.

He wrote stories which, in their jungle settings, use the supernatural and the bizarre to show the struggle of man and animal to survive. He also excelled in portrayingmental illness and hallucinatory states.[1] His influence can be seen in the Latin American magic realism of Gabriel García Márquez and the postmodern surrealism ofJulio Cortázar.[2]
