My Heart Flooded with Water by Alfonsina Storni
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Carefully selected from seven collections-and including a handful of poems never collected-this poetry book honours the prestigious feminist poet Alfonsina Storni by presenting some of her best work in an unparalleled English translation. This bilingual edition maintains the original poems in Spanish alongside the new translations and represents over 20 years of work by one of the most significant contributors to Latin American poetry in the 20th century. The nearly 80 poems include the poet's very last, ""I'm Going to Sleep,"" which was written just before her suicide after battling cancer.
