José Asunción Silva ocupa un lugar de honor en las letras hispanoamericanas y, al lado de Rubén Darío, puede ser considerado como el precursor de ese gran movimiento literario y cultural que fue el modernismo en América Latina. Su obra, escrita casi toda en l. a. Bogotá provinciana y pacata de finales del siglo XIX, es, entre otras cosas, una rebelión contra todo aquello que obstruía el desarrollo de una personalidad independiente y creativa, lo que explica el carácter contradictorio y pesimista de una buena parte de ella.

La selección y el prólogo que ofrecemos al lector fueron elaborados por el escritor Eduardo Camacho Guizado, autor de varios ensayos sobre Silva.
