"The Lost Caress", translated from the Spanish of Alfonsina Storni, is one of over a hundred famous poems featured in the book, "A SALUTE TO SPANISH POETRY: 100 MASTERPIECES FROM SPAIN AND LATIN AMERICA RENDERED INTO ENGLISH VERSE BY JOHN HOWARD REID.

Alfonsina Storni

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.
