Horacio Quiroga : his creative essence
MetadataShow full item record
One of the qualities that makes a writer great is perspective, especially if the writer’s vantage point is unique, a spot where no one before or after him has stood, and which allows him to look at the same world everybody else sees, but from a slightly different and artistically convincing angle. Such a writer was Horacio Quiroga. This thesis will attempt to elucidate Quiroga’s creative essence, with an emphasis on the relatively untouched theme of Quiroga and the New World, or American, creative process. The thesis is structured on three stories which I have translated in order to gain a better understanding of Quiroga’s creative essence.
