Presentation of the Issue.

We are pleased to present you the 25th Issue of our journal.

On this occasion, Argos has an interview with the writer Cristhian Briceño Ángeles, conducted by Jesús Miguel Delgado Del Águila, from the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos (PERU). Briceño Ángeles reflects on her training and what it means to be a writer in today's world.

Antonio Rodríguez Jiménez gives us a study of how various cities in the world are transformed by the gaze of poets, thus reconsidering the relationship of the human being with the environment.

Between Mallarmé and Octavio Paz: a poetic approach, is the name of the article by Joselyn Pérez Pérez, with which he contributes to the comparative study between two emblematic poets whose works offer possibilities for new interpretations to contemporary readers.

Childrens of the volcano , a review by Carlos Alberto Navarro Fuentes, invites us to see a work that ranges "between the spheres of documentary and experimental cinema", dealing with the eruption of the Chichonal volcano, located in the state of Chiapas in southern Mexico, which buried the Zoque indigenous people of Esquipulas Guayabal.

The construction of dialogism and otherness in a text: La Lanza de San Baltazar, analysis by Eyder Gabriel Sima Lozano, of the first Protestant newspaper in the city of Guadalajara, published at the end of the 19th century. The importance of the theme and approach is undoubted.

All my have : Martín Fierro como libro de cuentas, by Juan Pablo Luppi, PhD in Literature from the University of Buenos Aires, is a peculiar study of the work of José Hernández, with which he brings a new angle to critical approaches: the money in the work admired by Borges.

Based on a story by Juan Rulfo, Ramón Bárcenas investigates the devastation that the Mexican Revolution caused in rural communities. With this he demonstrates why the legacy of the great Jalisco is inexhaustible.

Spoken Letters: Writing Processes and Emotional Reflection is an interesting article entrusted to us by Rosa Sara Jiménez. Product of an action research, it shows us how the circles of reading and collective-personal writing, served to promote sisterhood, "means of empowerment in rural women" among the women of the semi-rural community of Santa María Chiconautla, Ecatepec, State from Mexico.

The concept of non-fiction is currently relevant, recent works show the possibilities of the genre, for this reason it has become pertinent to separate it from terms such as essay, biography, autobiography, autofiction, with which it maintains various similarities, but, most interestingly, crucial differences. For this reason, we recommend reading the article Dissertation on the term non-fiction.

The dramaturgy of power in Pig War Diary, by Amparo Reyes Velázquez, PhD in Hispano-American Literature from the Complutense University of Madrid, is a contemporary study of this important work by Bioy Casares, focused on the sociopolitical context of the dictatorship of Edelmiro Julián Farrell, political situation that underlies the novel.

As can be seen in the aforementioned themes, diversity is the keynote of this issue that we are so pleased to present to you. Thank you very much for joining us on this new journey of letters.
