More About Alfonsina Storni

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Alfonsina Storni (1892-1938) is considered one of the most prominent voices in Latin American poetry of the twentieth century, and among women poets, second only, perhaps, to the Nobel laureate Gabriela Mistral. From the start of her literary career Storni raised eyebrows for her controversial feminism, her indomitable honesty, and her barbed wit. Indeed she took on the role of enfant terrible with gusto, displaying a gleeful propensity for mockery and impish behavior. By the late 1920s and early 1930s, Storni was undoubtedly an established poet of considerable prestige and immense popularity. Her readings were attended by hundreds of adoring fans who not only purchased her books but also learned her poems by heart. She was a literary phenomenon most comparable perhaps to the American Edna St. Millay, with whom she shared, among other things, an urbane irony and a defiant yet ludic feminism. In 1935 Storni was unfortunately diagnosed with cancer. Her summers were spent on the seashore of Mar de Plata, an inspirational setting for many of her nature poems of this period. Though she was surely haunted by the specter of death, Storni galvanized the discipline and will to complete her last book of poems which many critics judged to be her crowning achievement, Mascarilla y trebol (Mask and Clover), published shortly before her suicide.

Alfonsina Storni was born in 1892 and died in 1938.

Reviews - What do customers think about Alfonsina Storni: Poesa : Editores Mexicanos Unidos (Spanish Edition)?

Excellent  Oct 11, 1999
Alfonsina Storni had more guts than many men, although she was profoundly feminine, and, as she put it, she loved THE men. She used to say that she'd liked to have been a man "because you -the man- have the best part, that of the death and the hate". And she died as she liked to do, because she throw herself in the Atlantic Ocean, escaping thus of a cancer of her right breast, on October of 1938.
