Silvina Ocampo

Silvina Ocampo, in a photo taken by her husband, [[Adolfo Bioy Casares]] Silvina Ocampo Aguirre (July 28, 1903 – December 14, 1993) was an Argentine short story writer, poet, and artist. Ocampo's friend and collaborator Jorge Luis Borges called Ocampo "one of the greatest poets in the Spanish language, whether on this side of the ocean or on the other." Her first book was ''Viaje olvidado'' (1937), translated as ''Forgotten Journey'' (2019), and her final piece was ''Las repeticiones'', published posthumously in 2006.

Before establishing herself as a writer, Ocampo was a visual artist. She studied painting and drawing in Paris where she met, in 1920, Fernand Léger and Giorgio de Chirico, forerunners of surrealism.

She received, among other awards, the Municipal Prize for Literature in 1954 and the National Poetry Prize in 1962. Provided by Wikipedia
