Tietoja tekijästä

The daughter of Polish-Jewish immigrants, Pizarnik suffered throughout her life from severe depression and committed suicide one weekend on leave from the psychiatric hospital where she was institutionalized. Pizarnik spent several years in Paris in contact with the European poetic vanguard and näytä lisää toward the end of her life held a Guggenheim Foundation award. Her poetry portrays the life of Latin American women as a bodily dismemberment by a multiply oppressive and repressive patriarchy. It sparked interest alone for the intensity with which it chronicles the obsessions of a feminine poete maudit. Concomitantly, Pizarnik's poetry assumed a clandestine and iconic dimension because the bulk of her mature output coincided with the military regimes in Argentine. For some, her work is a symbol of the destruction of the individual by neo-Fascist tyranny. Although Pizarnik mostly wrote highly charged poetic vignettes, leading her to be compared with Sylvia Plath, she also wrote outstanding prose poems, culminating in The Bloody Countess (1971). This is a chilly recreation of the nefarious Hungarian noblewoman, Erzbet Bathory, who was accused in the seventeenth century of torturing to death 600 maidens; and it is a work whose interest overlaps, if only obliquely, with the significant lesbian dimension of Pizarnik's writing.

Lyhyt elämäkerta
Alejandra Pizarnik was born to a family of Russian Jews who had fled to Argentina to escape the Holocaust. She attended the University of Buenos Aires and studied philosophy, journalism, and literature. She also studied painting with Surrealist painter Juan Battle Planas. She published her first book of poetry, La tierra más ajena, in 1955. She was strongly influenced by the French Symbolists, especially Arthur Rimbaud and Stéphane Mallarmé, and her work reflects frequent themes of childhood, pain and death.
In 1960, Alejandra went to Paris, where she worked as a freelance proofreader and translator. She translated into Spanish such French authors as André Breton, Aimé Césaire, Marguerite Duras, Paul Eluard, and Henri Michaux. She also wrote poetry and criticism for Latin American, Spanish, and French literary magazines. She was on the staff of the journal Cuadernos and joined the editorial board of Les Lettres Nouvelles. She was part of a literary circle that included leading 20th-century European and Latin American artists and writers, including Julio Cortázar, Rosa Chacel, and Octavio Paz. She continued her studies, taking courses in contemporary French literature and the history of religion at the Sorbonne.
Alejandra returned to Buenos Aires in 1964 and continued her intense literary activity. In 1965, her book Los trabajos y las noches was named the best book of poetry by the Argentine Foundation of Arts. In 1969, she received a Guggenheim Fellowship, which allowed her to travel to New York City, and in 1971 a Fullbright.
Pizarnik became one of the most significant modern Argentinian poets. She developed an addiction to amphetamines, which caused sleep disorders, and she may also have suffered from borderline personality disorder.
Alejandra Pizarnik died of an overdose of Seconal in 1972. Today there is a monument to her in her childhood neighborhood of Avellaneda.

Acabar con Textos de Sombra no me ha convencido

Pero qué descubrimiento la poesía

Leí con esperanza que más adelante habría cambio de tema, pero eso no paso,. Muerte, muerto y morí, el fin de todo. Y si, lo leí sin revisar el tema, así a veces. Tal vez mas adelante le encuentre sabor, ahorita no. Si, si encontré algo aquí y algo allá, poco, lo guarde para mí.
