    One of the best and most passionately romantic, Latin-American poetesses.Her poems are like nothing ever written before or after. Her brilliant poetic uniqueness and ineffable quality never equaled.
    Her creative flight never surpassed. Her tragic death a the hands of her ex-husband, a most terrible crime and loss for world literature. She was 28.
    Those who know Spanish must read her in the language she wrote in, to fully appreciate the miracle of her verse
