Abstract

Mario Benedetti was a loyal citizen of his country, Uruguay. He was able to captivate the daily life of the Uruguayans throughout the characters' traits. Topics such as love, double identity, politics and corruption are seen in the short stories by Benedetti. The purpose of this project was not only to translate from Spanish to English four of the fourteen short stories in his collection Con y sin nostalgia but to analyze the different themes Mario Benedetti used when creating his characters in his stories, bringing hope to the Uruguayans.
