Overview

ALFONSINA STORNI was an important poet and writer in Latin America during the 20th century. Born in Switzerland and raised in Argentina, she was a major force in the Modernist and feminist movements there. Sonia Harrison Jones was awarded a Canada Council grant to research Storni's publications in Buenos Aires, where she combed through libraries and archives, and also interviewed most of the writers, poets, and critics who had known her. Dr Jones presents her life and works in a lively, pleasing style, and provides thoughtful, valuable new insights into Storni's turbulent life and expressive poems, plays, and short novels.
