Rojas began writing at the mid-point of the Naturalist Period in the history of Chilean literature. In using naturalism, an extreme type of Realism, the writer portrays the most grisly aspects of human nature. The characters in such stories usually come from the lowest stratum of society and their behavior is often unsavory.
