Martin Fierro was created by Jose Hernandez in 1872, and today ranks as the highest achievement in Argentinean romantic Gaucho literature and poetry. It Has its roots in popular oral poetry, and has become something like a national poem. The narrative touches upon issues such as the fight for freedom against adversity and injustice, Love for humanity, truth and integrity, all aptly expressed in the drawings and overall slightly sombre presentation.
