Abstract: The purpose of the present paper is to propose a first approach to the narrative tales of Lydia Cabrera (La Habana 1900-Miami 1995). In the first chapter, the artistic overview which was present in Europe and America during the first decades of the XX century is depicted, focussing on the importance granted to the Negro figure; moreover, the contact with the European vanguards, which produces in Lydia Cabrera the fertile encounter with the African root of her country, is described. The second chapter, instead is dedicated to the analysis of just one tale, chosen among the writer's production. It is "Taita Hicotea y Taita Tigre", where the most significant features of the writer's work are emphasized; further, in the same tale, it is highlighted the presence of couples of conflicting elements, whose dichotomy has been solved and synthetised, thus recovering the concept of harmony which is the basis of the african thinging.
