Ophiolatreia by Culpeo-Fox Ophiolatreia by Culpeo-Fox
Anaconda didn't die. She lived a whole year among humans, sniffing around with watching eyes until the night came where she eventually decided to disappear.
- Horacio Quiroga, Anaconda

That's a really cool photo. The colours and all, very cool. But how did you managed it to get this awesome perspective? Is it your snake?

Goodness, you take the best photos of snakes. That's such a wicked cool. Ophiolatreia is the worship of snakes right? I haven't read Anaconda yet, but I'll have to find a copy soon; that quote is very intriguing.

Thank you! Anaconda was a wonderful little novella since it is quite rare to find a fictional story that is premised on snakes and their point of view.

I love Quiroga, too. I stumbled over his work just recently and ended up being totally fascinated by his work, which is often just as depressing as his lifestory was yet really good and inspiring.

Es fascinante y muy poetico en cierto modo, adoro como tiene esa capacidad de contar la muerte como algo pacifico y tranquilo como se puede leer en "El hombre muerto" que sin lugar a dudas es mi cuento favorito n_n

I didn't read "El hombre muerto" so far; unfortunately it is very hard to get some german translated copies of his stories here (i was happy enough that i could get my hands on some collected short stories like "El loro pelado", "Anaconda" and others) but i will definitely read it; it just sounds like my kind of story - and as i said, i'm simply fascinated by what i already read from Quiroga. :) It is a shame that he is so unknown here (in Germany).
