Description
Julio Florencio Cortázar (born 26 August 1914 in Brussels, 12 February 1984 in Paris) was an Argentine-French writer and intellectual, and, alongside Jorge Luis Borges, one of the most important authors of the fantastic literature. As his texts explore the boundaries between reality and fiction, they are associated with Surrealism. According to his own theory of the tunnel, however, Cortázar only uses surrealistic elements that are homoeopathically dosed to break the boundaries of everyday reality.



Cortázar died of leukemia in 1984, although it was assumed that a blood transfusion before the identification of HIV virus AIDS could have been the actual cause of death. Cortázar was buried at the cemetery Cimetière de Montparnasse, in Paris, France.
