My Heart Flooded with Water: Selected Poems

Carefully selected from seven collections—and including a handful of poems never collected—this poetry book honors 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.

These poems are beautifully crafted and I loved many of them. I didn't take a shine to a few because the themes didn't resonate with me. I highly recommend this book and Storni is now among my favorite authors. ...more

Although the translation is not the best possible, it is an amazing collection of poems of this incredible poet. Can be better appreciated by those whom speak Spanish and English. Every literature teacher should read it. ...more
