"An aura of legendary prestige surrounds the work of Alejandra Pizarnik," writes Cesar 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."

Review:

Translated by Yvette Siegert, this collection recalls a collusion of whimsy and gravitas apparent in Cortázar's work while simultaneously presenting the poet's own unique lyric sensibility.--Erica Wright

About the Author:

Alejandra Pizarnik (1936-1972) was born in Argentina and educated in Spanish and Yiddish. In addition to poetry, Pizarnik also wrote experimental works of theater and prose. She died of a deliberate drug overdose at the age of thirty-six.
