The short narrative in the 19th century of Peruvian has been overshadowed by the popularity of its most prolific and prominent representative in Ricardo Palma. For this reason, several writers of short shapes, such as Paulino Fuentes Castro, for example, have been forgotten, and others are only remembered by more prestigious writing on the editorial scene, such as the novel. This is the case of Teresa González de Fanning, Luis Benjamín Ciscalos and Mercedes Cabello de carbonera. This article seeks to bring to light a set of texts showing the evolution in the short narrative, first, identifying emblematic narrative forms of Roma in them, such as legend and tradition; and later on, with the association of ways close to the modern story. If the modern story is a difficult gender, its origins in Peru are even darker: in addition to an increasingly autonomous and complex structure of intriga, depending on the tendency of each perpetrator, elements of habits, Romaniticism, realism, naturalism, positivism and, in some cases, the nascent finisequal modernism are added. As can be seen, the short narrative during the 19th century faces multiple classification difficulties. Therefore, before presenting our evolving path, we will briefly outline four of these problems.
