In recent years an international reassessment of Uruguayan fiction writer Felisberto Hernandez has earned this relatively obscure and unread author new stature as a master of fantastic and autobiographical fiction. Major Hernandez themes such as the mirror, doubling, and fragmentation; narcissistic construction of idealized women-objects; fetishes and animism; etc., are treated in depth.
