«Alejandra Pizarnik was not only a great poet, she was the greatest, and the last.»
—César Aira

Obsessed with themes of solitude, childhood, madness, and death, Pizarnik explored the shifting valences of the self and the border between speech and silence. In her own words, she was drawn to “the suffering of Baudelaire, the suicide of Nerval, the premature silence of Rimbaud, the mysterious and fleeting presence of Lautréamont,” and to the “unparalleled intensity” of Artaud’s “physical and moral suffering.”
Extracting the Stone of Madness comprises all of her middle to late work, as well as a selection of posthumously published verse.
