More About This Title Las grandes mujeres


This short collection represents Alfonsina Storni's signature poetry, known to be tender and delicate yet occasionally rocky—a defense of artistic and individual freedom. With a prologue by Clara Sanchez, Las grandes mujeres becomes a dual work of art: Storni's poems combine with drawings and paintings by Antonia Santolaya. The intensity of the colorful artwork and the equally moving poems will stay with readers.


Alfonsina Storni is considered one of the most important Argentine poets of the 20th century. She is the author of La inquietud del rosal, Languidez, Mundo de siete pozos, Ocre, and Poemas de amor. Antonia Santolaya is a painter, a sculptor, and an illustrator. She is the recipient of the Apel-les-Mestres Prize and the Gran Canaria's 6th International Illustrated Album Competition Award in 2011.
