Alfonsina Storni was born on May 29, 1892. On his birth, we tell you who he was and why his poetic and theatrical work is his best legacy.
Alfonsina Storni (Capriasca, Switzerland 1892- Mar del Plata, 1938) is one of the most unique Argentine poets of the first half of the 20th century. In his verses he evolves from modernism to avant-garde currents while his voice becomes more autobiographical and obscure but without abandoning love as his great subject. She was one of the first broadcasters of Argentine feminism with poems denouncing social models.
Born into a wealthy family that became impoverished by the father's problems of alcoholism and bad business, Alfonsina wrote her first poem at the age of twelve. She worked as a worker without ceasing to study teaching, going through great hardships, and became director in Rosario. However, nervous problems would force her to leave teaching and settle in Buenos Aires. In 1916, Alfonsina poor, a single mother without contacts, published “The restlessness of the rose bush” and obtained an unusual recognition from the literary world and the public, especially the female. Author in addition to dramaturgy and children's theater, collaborator in the newspaper La Nación under the pseudonym Tao-Lao, in the 1930s her figure became an Argentine cultural reference until her suicide in Mar del Plata suffering from a terminal illness.
“.. backed in the time, massively by the female audience who endorses the poems of Storni, who models in his work a type of sexual woman, inscribed in his biography, which is not included.iacute; do in neither of the two accepted by society in the first decades of the twentieth century: mother or prostitute” in Prieto, M.

My soul has all the nuances, I
already said: it's true.
From fierce rebellion passes sweet
to sweet humility.
There is only this truth:
my heart that is
bleeding behind different veils.
About Buenos Aires
A fold your black bridge Alsina
like a great bandoneon and
dance your tango, among raged lights,
to the broken barges of the Riachuelo
To Carolina Muzilli (1889-1917), worker, activist and feminist
pioneer Sad friend,
was loving the summer
Forests in aromas of
voyages over seas, new
of justice were.
You went off one day...
To honor the great poet Alfonsina Storni
