La Gallina [HOT]
"The Decapitated Chicken" ("La gallina degollada") was first published on 10 July 1909 in Caras y Caretas, then in the collection Cuentos de amor, de locura y de muerte in 1917. It offers one of the clearest examples of Horacio Quiroga's fascination with madness and the macabre, and his debt to Edgar Allan Poe and the other masters he lists in his "Decálogo del perfecto cuentista" (meaning "Ten Commandments for the Perfect Short Story Writer"), Chekhov and Maupassant. The story contains the three elements of the title of the collection: love, madness, and death. A couple, deeply in love, marry and have children. Their four sons all sicken and are reduced to a state of idiocy because of congenital disease. They later have a daughter who is healthy and normal, but this child is butchered by her four brothers.

Cocorina era una gallina muy simpática y cariñosa, pero también algo despistada y torpe. El hecho de ser mamá de tres pollitos no ayudaba demasiado: Cocorina andaba de aquí para allá con mil cosas a la cabeza!
