En 1913, Leopoldo Lugones presentó seis conferencias en el teatro Odeón, donde se encontraba la gran mayoría de los políticos y literatos de la época. Luego viajó a Europa y regresó a la República Argentina cuando empezó la Primera Guerra Mundial. Una vez allí, recopiló todo el material a los que añadió cuatro nuevos capítulos, y los publicó bajo el nombre de El payador en 1916, fecha significativa, centenario de la Independencia. El payador es un ensayo que retrata la vida y las costumbres del gaucho en la pampa, en particular del payador, cantor errante de romances. Lugones establece una relación directa entre el Martín Fierro y obras como La Ilíada de Homero, el Cantar de Mio Cid, incluso la Divina Comedia, para equiparar el personaje del gaucho con los grandes personajes épicos de la historia, lo cual creó cierta sorpresa entre los círculos intelectuales del momento. «El gaucho influyó de manera decisiva en la formación de la nacionalidad por ser elemento conciliador y a la vez diferencial entre el indio y el español. Todo cuanto es origen nacional viene de él: la guerra de la independencia, la guerra civil, la guerra con los indios. No lamentemos, sin embargo, con exceso su desaparición que fue un bien para el país, porque el gaucho contenía un elemento inferior en su parte de sangre indígena.&#187

"The work of Leopoldo Lugones, Argentina's best-known writer during his lifetime, spans many literary styles and ideological positions. He was influential as a modernist poet, as a precursor of the avant-garde, and also as the poet of Argentine nature. His short stories (Las fuerzas extranas [Strange Forces], 1906) were early examples of the fantastic in Latin American fiction and influenced Borges, Quiroga, and others. His characters, often scientists and doctors experimenting in the transmutation of thought, reflect his interest in the uncanny and inspired contemporary interest in animism and occultism. His prose works include La guerra gaucha (1905) and the essay El payador (1916) in which he idealized the gaucho as a heroic figure, popular poet, and symbol of Argentine identity. Lugones altered his political views many times, adopting radical anarchism and, later in life, fascism. He was therefore a controversial figure, both acclaimed and scorned by his contemporaries. His adherence to the importance of literary form drew criticism from the new generation of writers, such as Borges, but Borges later stated in 1955 that "Lugones was and continues to be the greatest Argentine writer.""--BOOK JACKET
Poemas by Leopoldo Lugones( Book )
3 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Su primer libro de poemas es Las montañas del oro, de 1897, con versos medidos y libres, y prosa poética, en plena eclosión del modernismo. Más tarde publicó Los crepúsculos del jardín (1905) y Lunario sentimental (1909), todos influidos por Rubén Darío. Odas seculares (1910), supuso un cambio en su estilo, que exalta las riquezas argentinas inspirado en Virgilio. Su poesía se vuelve intimista y cotidiana en El libro fiel (1912), El libro de los paisajes (1917) y Las horas doradas (1922). Los Poemas solariegos (1927) y el póstumo Romances del Río Seco tienen un estilo más narrativo
