Selected and translated by Jason Weiss
Silvina Ocampo possessed her own special enchantment as a poet, and only now is her extraordinary poetic achievement becoming more widely recognized beyond Latin America. Remarkably, this is the first collection of Ocampo's poetry to appear in English. From her early sonnets on the native Argentine landscape, to her meditations on love's travails, to her explorations of the kinship between plant and animal realms, to her clairvoyant inquiries into history and myth and memory, readers will find the full range of Ocampo's "metaphysical lyricism" (The Independent) represented in this groundbreaking edition.
