José Hernández (born José Rafael Hernández y Pueyrredón; (1834 – 1886) was an Argentine journalist, poet, and politician best known as the author of the epic poem "Martín Fierro". Hernández is known today almost exclusively for his masterpiece Martín Fierro, the epic poem that stands as the pinnacle of gauchesque literature. The poem was apparently begun during a period of exile in Brazil following the defeat at Ñaembé (1870) and was published in two parts (in 1872 and 1879).
