Mariano de Vedia y Mitre (1881,1958) was a lawyer, writer, historian, and politician who served as mayor of the city of Buenos Aires between 1932 and 1938. The work contains a study of the myth of Salomé, including a Spanish translation of Oscar Wilde's Salomé. Salomé (1891) is the title of a tragedy by Oscar Wilde that shows, in a single act, a very personal interpretation of the Biblical story of Salomé. The stepdaughter of the governor Herod Antipas, she asked her father for the head of Jokaanan (John the Baptist) on a silver platter, as a reward for having danced in his presence.
