Description

This book is a collection of 18 tales, by the famous Uruguayan writer Horacio Quiroga, presented as a Spanish/English bilingual edition.
Most of the stories are dark and strange and describe situations that offer no clear way out for the protagonist, who in some cases is an animal (as in three stories, although they are not for children). Some stories are set in the countryside and others in the city, both showing the lives of the poor and disinherited but also of the most favored members of society.
Quiroga portrays sharply the social miseries and limitations of the protagonists, which often end up deciding their final destiny. Irony mingles freely with social denunciations, love, madness and death.
Also this book is useful for students of Spanish, to learn Spanish through reading, since the side-by-side presentation of the Spanish and English texts, makes it easy following the original Spanish text.
The tales presented in this book are:

  • Una Estación de Amor / A Station of Love
  • Los Ojos Sombríos / The Shady Eyes
  • El Solitario / The Solitaire
  • La Muerte de Isolda / The Death of Isolde
  • El Infierno Artificial / Artificial Hell

A very rough translation
Reviewed in the United States on September 19, 2021
Though we need translations of this influential writer, this translation is at times difficult to understand, as the English doesn''t flow and isn''t colloquial.
