Madwomen: The Locas Mujeres Poems of Gabriela Mistral

From the publisher:

Gabriela Mistral (1889-1957) is one of the most important and enigmatic figures in twentieth-century Latin American literature. The Locas mujeres poems collected here are among Mistral’s most complex and compelling, exploring facets of the self in extremis – poems marked by the wound of blazing catastrophe and its aftermath of mourning. Madwomen promises to reveal a profound poet to a new generation while reacquainting Spanish readers with a stranger, more complicated ‘madwoman’ than most have ever known.
