About the Author

Rosa Chacel was born in Vallodolid, Spain, in 1898. She belongs to that brilliant generation of artists that became the cultural vanguard in the 1920s and 1930s: García Lorca, Buñuel, Dalí, Alberti, Guillén, Aleixandre. As a result of the fascists' victory in the late thirties, the work of Chacel and other women writers were erased from the cultural memory until recently. In the interim Chacel was exiled in Brazil and Argentina. Currently she lives in Madrid and writes every day. Carol Maier is a professor of Spanish at Kent State University and editor, with Noël Valis, of In the Feminine Mode. Her other translations include work by Carmen Martín Gaite, Ana Castillo, Octavio Armand, and Severo Sarduy.
