Storni, Alfonsina (1892-1938). The ardent feminist, Alfonsina Storni (who often – and with good reason – referred to men as el enemigo) was born in Switzerland.
Soon after, her family soon returned to Argentina.
After early struggles in Buenos Aires, Alfonsina hit the big time in Montevideo when she was awarded both the National Literary Prize and the Municipal Poetry Prize for her 1920 book, Languidez (“Languor”).
Despite her successes, in later life she felt marginalized, and was haunted by worsening health and emotional problems.
See her poem, The Lost Caress.
