Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“An aura of legendary prestige surrounds the work of Alejandra Pizarnik,” writes César Aira. Her last collection to be published before her suicide in 1972, A Musical Hell is the first book of poems by Pizarnik to be published in its entirety in the U.S. Pizarnik writes at the edge of poetic impossibility, opening with a blues singer, expanding into silence, and closing into a theater of shadows and songs of the drowned.

Synopsis:

The first book of poems by Pizarnik to be published in its entirety in the U.S., poetry at the edge of impossibility.

About the Author

Alejandra Pizarnik (1936–1972) was a key figure in twentieth-century Argentine poetry.
