Brazilian town on the Uruguayan border where José Hernández wrote part of the Martín Fierro

Fishburn and Hughes: A town in Livramento, Brazil, near the Argentinian-Uruguayan border, a rough area characterised by fighting and smuggling, mainly of cattle. Borges visited Sant' Anna with Amorim and recalls his shock on seeing the violent shooting of a drunkard by a capanga. The incident was reflected in several of his stories: 'Tlön, ...', 'The Shape of the Sword', 'The Dead Man',' The Other Death' and obliquely in 'The South'. Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius
