ALFONSINA STORNI was an important poet and writer in Latin America during the 20th century. Born in Switzerland and raised in Argentina, she was a major force in the Modernist and feminist movements there. Sonia Harrison Jones was awarded a Canada Council grant to research Storni's publications in Buenos Aires, where she combed through libraries and archives, and also interviewed most of the writers, poets, and critics who had known her. Dr Jones presents her life and works in a lively, pleasing style, and provides thoughtful, valuable new insights into Storni's turbulent life and expressive poems, plays, and short novels. WHAT READERS ARE SAYING: "It is remarkable that this book, written in 1979, was still a best seller on Amazon in 2003." -Claudia Edith Mendez, PhD thesis, University of Maryland "Sonia Jones is one of the pioneering scholars in bringing attention to the importance of Storni's contribution to the feminist movement." -Celia Garzón-Arrabal, "The Theater of Alfonsina Storni: Feminism and Innovation" ProQuest, 2008 (PhD thesis, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill) This is one of four books on the reading list for Latin American Women's Poetry at Cambridge, Dept of Spanish and Portuguese, Faculty of Modern & Medieval Languages. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Sonia Harrison Jones earned her PhD from Harvard. She has written a dozen other books in many different genres, all available from Amazon or ErserandPond.com.
