Abstract

The centaur, which is the most harmonious being of fantastic zoology symbolizing a rustic barbarity and the ire, according to the definition given in the Book of Imaginary Beings by Borges and Guerrero (1957) is a figure that hasn't received the right attention. In this analysis I propose some Rioplatense writers' tales in which there is this myth. In particular: "Los caballos de Abdera" by Lugones, "El alambre de pua" by Quiroga, "El centauro" by Wilcock, "Aballay" by Di Benedetto y "Diptico del centauro" by Campra.
