HOLGUIN CALLO, Oswaldo. Ricardo Palma and the respected Julio S. Hernandez, or two visions of women of Lima in the postwar period (1885). Bol. Acad. peru. leng. [online]. 2022, n.72, pp.11-61.  Epub Dec 16, 2022. ISSN 0567-6002.

Ricardo Palma kept a long and close friendship with Julio S. Hernández, journalist and politician, also a poet, twenty years younger, who played an important and reserved role in his appointment as director of the National Library of Peru. Hernandez wrote a comedy, Ernesto, in which he questioned the Limeñas who married out of interest. Asked for his opinion, Palma expressed his criticisms in verse; Hernandez replied in the same form. Later, stimulated by his admirer, Palma wrote “Levantiscos”, a “literary letter” about the origin of that word.

Keywords : Ricardo Palma; Julio S. Hernández; National Library of Peru; 19th century Peruvian theater history; theater criticism; etymology.
