Summary: This article explores the images of the aesthetics of death in some narratives of the Salvadorian writer Claudia Hernández within the category called postwar literature. Violence is presented as a leitmotif in her stories. However, the stories analyzed here provide a thematic and stylistic shift. The characters and plots are developed in more realistic ways. The marks of violence are evident in the naked bodies of characters and in the minds and bodies of children. Angels, demons and ghosts embody characters without roots; oppressed and marked, these characters the follow the ways of death.
