ABSTRACT
The article analyzes the short story "Los mensú," by Horacio Quiroga, arguing that the story embodies a Marxist critique of the purported environmental consequences of capitalism. It is said that Quiroga portrays the working classes as desperate and exploited. Topics include Quiroga's personal experiences in the Southern Cone region of South America, ecological aspects of the thought of philosopher Karl Marx, and links between the exploitation of workers and the exploitation of the earth.
