About this product
- DescriptionGarden of Silica is the first poetry anthology of the Uruguayan Ida Vitale to appear in English, spanning eight books published from 1960 to the present. Her work seeks a balance between subjectivity and objectivity, privileges intellectual capacity above that of sentimentality, and requires an active reader.
- Author BiographyIda Vitale (Montevideo, Uruguay, 1923) is one of the fundamental voices of Latin American literature. Vitale has authored some thirty books, among which poetry prevails. From her first collection The Light of this Memory (1949) to her most recent Trema (2005), her poetry constructs an intellectual, participative subject that relegates the national and the feminine to a second plane. Thus, Vitale offers one of the most profound and provocative representations of women's subjectivity in the Spanish language.
