Leopoldo Antonio Lugones Argüello
(13 June 1874 – 18 February 1938) was an Argentine poet, essayist, novelist, playwright, historian, professor, translator, biographer, philologist, theologian, diplomat, politician and journalist. His poetic writings are often considered to be the founding works of Spanish-language modern poetry (not, however, modernismo
). His short stories made him a crucial precursor and also a pioneer of both the fantastic and science fiction literature in Argentina.
