Born in 1907 in Linares, Luis Leal from Neoleon has dedicated himself to the teaching and research of Mexican and Latin American literature at Mexican and North American universities, with a special predilection for the genre of the story, as proven by his best stories (1951), anthology. of Amado Nervo; Brief history of the Mexican story (1956); Anthology of the Mexican story (1957); Bibliography of the Mexican story (1958); his contribution to La Revolución y las letras (1960), essay written in collaboration with Edmundo Valadés; Historia del cuento hispanoamericano (1966) and the anthologies El cuento veracruzano (1966) and El cuento mexicano de los origins al modernismo (1966). Leal, who is also the author of Mariano Azuela: Life and Work (1961), proposes in this story to give a brief review of the development of the Mexican story, from the indigenous stories to the cultivation of this genre by the national narrators of the mid-century.
