Alejandra Pizarnik
ALEJANDRA PIZARNIK lived in Paris between 1960 and 1964. There she took classes at the Sorbonne, worked in literary publishing, and translated works by several French-speaking writers including Aimé Cesaire and Antonin Artaud. Trained as a painter, Pizarnik was heavily influenced by the surrealists and also became friends with key figures in the expatriate community of Latin American writers, most notably Octavio Paz (1914-1998) and her compatriot Julio Cortázar (1914-1984). She died in 1972, aged 36.
