Diana’s Tree is an important book – written in Paris, where she lived for four years – and the first really mature work (1963) by Alejandra Pizarnik (1936-1972), increasingly recognised as one of the major poetic voices of the second half of the 20th century in Latin America. “Reading Anna Deeny Morales’s incisive translation of Alejandra Pizarnik is like experiencing Walter de Maria’s Lightning Field – not in the New Mexico desert, but inside you. Psychologically strained and emotionally saturated, Pizarnik’s poetry has electrified readers for more than sixty years. As gnomic, dreamy, passionate, and dark as the originals, Deeny’s translations leave you singed- and glowing. ” – Forrest Gander
