Description
A schoolteacher whose poetry catapulted her to early fame in her native Chile and an international diplomat whose boundary-defying sexuality still challenges scholars, Gabriela Mistral (1889OCo1957) is one of the most important and enigmatic figures in Latin American literature of the last century. The "Locas mujeres" poems collected here are among MistralOCOs most complex and compelling, exploring facets of the self "in extremis"OCopoems marked by the wound of blazing catastrophe and its aftermath of mourning.aaaaaaaaaaa From disquieting humor to balladlike lyricism to folkloric wisdom, these pieces enact a tragic sense of life, depicting OC madwomenOCO who are anything but mad. Strong and intensely human, MistralOCOs poetic women confront impossible situations to which no sane response exists. This groundbreaking collection presents poems from MistralOCOs final published volume as well as new editions of posthumous work, featuring the first English-language appearance of many essential poems. "Madwomen" promises to reveal a profound poet to a new generation of Anglophone readers while reacquainting Spanish readers with a stranger, more complicated OC madwomanOCO than most have ever known.aa"
