Luego los sollozos fueron retardándose, y aún quedó largo rato escondida en su cuello, sin moverse ni decir una palabra. One night she suddenly focused on one spot. The top feathers floated away, and the servant, her mouth opened wide, gave a scream of horror and covered her face with her clenched fists: in the bottom of the pillowcase, among the feathers, slowly moving its hairy legs, was a monstrous animal, a living viscous ball. She could scarcely move her head. With tireless persistence he paced ceaselessly from one end of the room to the other.
This is so because Poe deals with unbalanced and destructive characters that are more concerned about death and life beyond death than about their existence. During the Carnival of 1898 the young poet met his first love, a girl named Mary Esther Jurkovski, who would inspire two of his most important works: Las sacrificadas 1920; The Slaughtered and Una estación de amor 1912; A Season of Love. After a moment she opened her mouth to call out, sweat forming on her nostrils and lips like pearls. The title alone gives a sense of foreshadowing as to what the theme will be. Then she opened her mouth to scream, and pearls of sweat suddenly beaded her nose and lips. When he could not stand the disease anymore, Quiroga traveled to Buenos Aires for treatment.
It was not strange then that she grew thin. Many of the elements of a short story as defined by Cortazar are included in this piece. Noche a noche, desde que Alicia había caído en cama, había aplicado sigilosamente su boca —su trompa, mejor dicho— a las sienes de aquélla, chupándole la sangre. This warm feeling she begun with in her honeymoon phase disappears. Later, a character of one of his stories was given a similar trait. The servant obeys but quickly drops the pillow, trembling. From time to time he would enter the room and continue his silent pacing along the side of the bed, pausing a moment at each end to look at his wife.
An unforgettable short tale from the pen of Uruguayan short story writer Horacio Quiroga. Alicia no tuvo más desmayos, pero se iba visiblemente a la muerte. Proyecto: La biblioteca de Benito. Manuel Galvez, owner of a publishing firm, had suggested that he write it and the volume immediately became a huge success with audiences and critics, consolidating Quiroga as the true master of the Latin American short story. Alicia changes from a happy newly wed who feels slightly ill with influenza into a shell of her former self. But Poe did not write them. The tragedy of Ana María's painful death left Quiroga and his two children, five-year-old Eglé and four-year-old Darío, plunged into dark despair.

She had a light attack of influenza that dragged on insidiously for days and days: after that Alicia's health never returned. The doctors returned to no avail.

For his part, he loved her very deeply, but he did not show it. As one crossed from one room to another, the echo of his steps reverberated throughout the house, as if long abandonment had sensitized its resonance. De pronto Jordán, con honda ternura, le pasó la mano por la cabeza, y Alicia rompió enseguida en sollozos, echándole los brazos al cuello. Without knowing why, Jordan felt his hair stand up. His only play, The Slaughtered, was published in 1920 and was released in 1921, when Anaconda was released another book of short stories.
Stern and dictatorial, Quiroga demanded that every little detail was done according to his requirements. Suddenly Alicia began to have hallucinations, vague images, at first seeming to float in the air, then descending to floor level. During the last consultation Alicia lay in a stupor while they took her pulse, passing her inert wrist from one to another. Around this time he founded the Salto Cycling Club and achieved the remarkable feat of cycling from his home town to , a distance of 120 kilometres 74½ miles. It was so swollen that its mouth was barely pronounceable. Lo quería mucho, sin embargo, a veces con un ligero estremecimiento cuando volviendo de noche juntos por la calle, echaba una furtiva mirada a la alta estatura de Jordán, mudo desde hacía una hora.
The illness gets worse only at night. Suddenly Alicia began to have hallucinations, vague images, at first seeming to float in the air, then descending to floor level. The daily fluffing of the pillow without a doubt had slowed its progress at first, but ever since the young woman stopped moving the sucking went at a dizzying speed. Quiroga fell in love with the jungle areas of the Amazon. In his home town he founded a magazine titled Revista de Salto 1899.
