Estoy sola y escribe. No, no estoy sola. Delicia de perderse en la imagen presentida. Paths of the Mirror xii.

But the silence is certain. This is why I write. I am alone and I write. No, I am not alone. There is someone here who is trembling. The pleasure of losing yourself in the image foreseen. I rose from my body and went out in search of who I am. A pilgrim of my self [or from my self; the Spanish is ambiguous], I have gone to the one who sleeps in the alejsndra of her country. My fall that is endless into my fall that is endless, where no one expected me, since when I looked to see who expected me, I saw no other thing than my self.


Something falling in the silence. My final word was I, but by this I meant the luminous dawn. La muerte ha restituido al silencio su prestigio hechizante.

Fragments to Dominate the Silence Death aebol refunded silence its spellbinding prestige. Even if the poem here, now has no meaning, it has no fate. Her poetry, her lyrical prose; insightful, heart-wrenching. Undoubtedly, I’ll keep reading her work, which shows a deep understanding of human nature, including its countless chiaroscuros.

Iglesia de vitrales obscenos. Huella azul en la pared. Jun 05, jeremy rated it it was amazing Shelves: Este poemario es nuestro. Es de nuestra propiedad cuando la muerte y la madrugada se funden conmigo y somos una. Soy la amante de Pizarnik. Apr 05, Dorotea rated it it was amazing. I have been trying for months to find the right words to describe Pizarnik’s poetry. Veo crecer hasta mis ojos figuras de silencio y desesperadas. Las angustias se intensifican en sintaxis rotas como ocurre en el final de Figuras y silencios: Me quieren anochecer, me van a morir.

Jun 10, metaphor rated it really liked it Shelves: When you look at me my eyes are keys, the wall holds secrets, and my fear carries words, poems. Only you can turn my memory into a fascinated traveler, a relentless fire. You announce yourself like thirst. Asking is so far away.

And plzarnik close, this knowledge of want. Here I am, calling to myself with your voice. Aug 03, Dhiyanah rated it it was amazing Shelves: The personal becomes the core of all things, as it often is, and Pizarnik acknowledges the division of selves that occur in alejamdra search for a language big enough to do what alejaandra needed it to.

The effect is like a mirror facing another, its subject matter caught in between — the mise en abyme of the internal landscape, reflections unfolding into the infinite.

Overwhelmed, the subject matter easily loses sight of itself. My response piece and review, in full: View all 3 comments. Jun 13, John Madera rated it it was amazing. An utterly harrowing read. Nov 20, Jeremy rated it liked it. While I mostly wandered lost in translation? A year out alejancra her seconal overdose, Pizarnik cuts all the bullshit, as though asking, ‘You pizarnij the show? I’ll give you a show’, and purges a great accumulation of her torment and genius in an unforgettable bark.


Alejandra writes the poem that is underneath the language of the poem. This book is so dear to me. Yvette Siegert did fine work here, but I found Cecilia Rossi’s older translations to be a bit more musical. Dec 17, d added it Shelves: Not knowing when the dawn will come I open every door.

And, above all, to look on innocently. As if nothing were happening, which is true.

La clave de lecura: Copio fragmento largo y bello de The dream of death, or the site of the poetical bodies: I would alejanrda to see the bottom of the river, I would like to see if that thing opens, if it bursts and blooms at my side, and it will or will not come, but I can sense its struggle. I can think that maybe it is only death. Death is a word. The word is a thing, death is a thing, a poetical body that draws breath at the site of my birth.

It speaks, but from above a stage of ashes; it speaks, but from the bottom of the river, where death is singing. She walked away singing and looked like an old beggar, and the children pelted her with stones. She sang in a fog that the sun could barely shine through, on the morning of the birth — and I would wander diaan a torch in my hand across all the deserts of this world, even after death, to search for you, my dear lost love — and the song of death unfolded in the course of a single morning, and she sang and sang.

She also sang in the old tavern by the pier. And it was in the tavern by the pier where she sang her song. I write with my eyes shut. I write with my eyes wide open. Let the wall fall down. Let the wall turn into a river Or is the se a shadow to her Shadow? I don’t know if that’s knowable. For this, I thank her.
