    About "Alejandra Pizarnik Yvette Siegert"

      • Alejandra Pizarnik Yvette Siegert

        Born in Buenos Aires to Russian parents who had fled Europe and the Nazi Holocaust, Alejandra Pizarnik was destined for literary greatness as well as an early death She died from an ostensibly self administered overdose of barbiturates on 25 September 1972 A few words scribbled on a slate that same month, reiterating her desire to go nowhere but to the bottom, sum up her lifelong aspiration as a human being and as a writer The compulsion to head for the bottom or abyss points to her desire to surrender to nothingness in an ultimate experience of ecstasy and poetic fulfillment in which life and art would be fused, albeit at her own risk Ojal pudiera vivir solamente en xtasis, haciendo el cuerpo del poema con mi cuerpo If I could only live in nothing but ecstasy, making the body of the poem with my body.

    1. Caminos del Espejoxii.Pero el silencio es cierto. Por eso escribo. Estoy sola y escribe. No, no estoy sola. Hay alguien aquí que tiembla. […]xv.Delicia de perderse en la imagen presentida. Yo me levanté de mi cadáver, yo fui en busca de quien soy. Peregrina de mí, he ido hacia la que duerme en un país al viento.xvi.Mi caída sin fin a mi caída sin fin en donde nadie me aguardó pues al mirar quién me aguardaba no vi otra cosa a mí misma.xvii.Algo caía en el silencio. Mi última palabr [...]


    2. "No es muda la muerte. Escucho el canto de los enlutados sellar las hendiduras del silencio. Escucho tu dulcísimo llanto florecer mi silencio gris."Quiero partir de la base de que me aventuré a leer a esta maravillosa escritora una vez más un domingo por la tarde, supongo que si ya la han leído anteriormente sabrán que es toda una osadía, pero sigo acá. Leerla siempre me genera una sensación extraña, como si creara un agujero, el vacío en mí que automáticamente vuelve a llenar con su [...]


    3. “Y yo caminaría por todos los desiertos de este mundo y aun muerta te seguiría buscando, a ti, que fuiste el lugar del amor.”Alejandra Pizarnik es la poeta de la muerte. El desdoblamiento del yo y la imaginería surrealista son recursos utilizados constantemente para dar voz al dolor. La antología de Visor libros que he leído reúne composiciones en verso y prosa poética de “La extracción de la piedra de locura” (1968), “La última inocencia” (1956), “Las aventuras perdidas [...]


    4. A morte restituiu ao silêncio o seu prestígio sedutor. E eu não direi o meu poema e eu hei-de dizê-lo. Mesmo que o poema (aqui, agora) não tenha sentido, não tenha destino.


    5. Este poemario es nuestro. Es de nuestra propiedad cuando la muerte y la madrugada se funden conmigo y somos una. Sus versos son mi ectoplasma y yo soy el corazón de lo que existe.Soy la amante de Pizarnik.*(Lo que escribí en un post-it a las 2:09 de la madrugada nada más acabar el poemario. Mis desvaríos nocturnos)


    6. Una poesía sublunar intensamente personal obsesionada por la muerte, huesos, lilas, silencio, nombres perdidos, madrugadas, el sonido del agua, y antiguos grises, como en Vértigos o contemplación de algo que termina:Esta lila se deshoja,Desde sí misma caey oculta su antigua sombra.He de morir de cosas así.Hay poesía que uno intuye más allá de los horizontes que nos son dado alcanzar -eso me pasa con la poesía mesurada y elegíaca de este libro frágil, fracturado, ajeno e insomne que, t [...]


    7. The personal becomes the core of all things, as it often is, and Pizarnik acknowledges the division of selves that occur in the search for a language big enough to do what she 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: forwardslashsea.wordpress


    8. A mí es que esta mujer me flipa como escribe, habla mucho sobre la soledad y sobre ella misma.En cuánto a los otros poemas flipo con la Dama de Hierro como torturaba a esas pobres chicas y tengo una sensación muy rara en la garganta y una sensación de profundo asco por lo que les hacía



    9. When you look at memy eyes are keys,the wall holds secrets,and my fear carries words, poems.Only you can turn my memoryinto a fascinated traveler,a relentless fire. *You speak like the night.You announce yourself like thirst. *on the other edge of the nightlove is possibletake me theretake me to the sweet essencesthat die each day in your memory*I stored up the purest wordsfor making new silences*In my eyes I’ve lost everything.Asking is so far away. And so close, this knowledge of want. *What [...]


    10. While I mostly wandered lost (in translation?) through these halls, "Psychopathology Ward" was so brilliant I raised the stars to three. A year out from her seconal overdose, Pizarnik cuts all the bullshit, as though asking, 'You want the show? I'll give you a show', and purges a great accumulation of her torment and genius in an unforgettable bark.


    11. 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.



    12. Dickinson: Not knowing when the dawn will come I open every door.Pizarnik: And, above all, to look on innocently. As if nothing were happening, which is true.Gloria y loor, compañeros. Pensé que leer a Pizarnik en inglés (ed. New Directions, 2016) iba a ser una tarea harto ingrata pero no resultó tan así. La clave de lecura: pretender que los poemas cortos nunca los leí y que me los encontraba por primera vez. Hay problemas de traducción en los poemas más breves; hay una elección de pal [...]


    13. Alejandra what can I say about the wo/man who was "many voices, many languages, including silence," everything and nothing at once, a shadow to her Shadow? Or is the shadow a shadow to her Shadow? I don't know if that's knowable. I don't think Alejandra herself ever figured that out, hence her mad pursuit a la Gerard de Nerval, to explore the depths of our darkest places/spaces/thoughts/inner dialogues. For this, I thank her. What can be said of her poems? Her poems do take on a repetitive note, [...]


    14. Ok so I don't normally write reviews and I'm going to make this one brief because I'm not quite sure how to put into words my feelings on this collection. Basically I feel I have never read a book of poetry nor a book containing any words whatsoever that are put together as beautifully and hauntingly gorgeous as Pizarnik has. This is by far one of my favorite books ever now and am extremely saddened by the fact that she had committed suicide at such a young age and more of her poetry and words c [...]


    15. The LOVE is HUGE! Alejandra Pizarnik will always be close at hand. Some quotes:"If only I could live in a continual state of ecstasy, shaping the body of the poem with my own, rescuing every phrase with my days and weeks, imbuing the poem with my breath while feeding the letters of its every word into the offering in this ceremony of living.""The light of language covers me like music, like a picture ripped to shreds by the dogs of grief. And winter reaches for me like a woman who has fallen in [...]


    16. A great collection / introduction to Pizarnik’s poetry. Some of my favorite poems were Oblivion, Childhood, Clock, Silences, I Ask for Silence, Party, Memory Loss, Dwelling Places, Deaf Lantern, Winter Tale, The Mask and the Poem, Small Prose Poems, Sous La Nuit, and of course, Extracting the Stone of Madness. Alas, like it seems to be with my favorite poets these days, this one is no longer around to produce more poetry but take comfort in what I have that she wrote. “In love with the words [...]


    17. COMUNICACIONES"El viento me había comidoparte de la cara y las manos.Me llamaban ángel harapiento.Yo esperaba."No me atrevo a decir que De《los trabajos y las noches》(1965) sea la parte que más me ha gustado, pero seguramente lo sea.Incluso de "La condesa sangrante" he sacado algo. donde este último está incluido, es quizás la parte que menos me ha gustado/ la única que no ha logrado conquistarme. Este ha sido uno de esos casos de ~Leerse un libro sin querer~. AY, dichoso yo.


    18. Pizarnik sabe decir mucho con muy poco, ella siempre tiene presente la brevedad, incluso con todo detalle, el no hablar de más es un de sus mayores características, es precisa con lo que quiere transmitir. Aquí me consumió en un surrealismo intenso que me hizo entrar en un desliz de locura, ya los efectos que marcan su poesía en generalAy, Alejandra y su maña de dejar a uno con suspiros en retención.


    19. Por cómo acabó, la poesía no le sirvió para extraer su piedra de la locura Su poesía es inquietante e intensa, perturbadora, pero me llega más a través de su prosa. Aunque a menudo son la misma cosa. Me alegro haber llegado a ella, ahora quiero más.


    20. i'm not really the kind to write reviews, but for this amazing book, i just had to. i stumbled upon her chapbook at powell's in portland, or, & instantly fell in love. her gorgeous writing cuts deep & carves a window into the communal psyche of despair. can not recommend this book more highly!


    21. Una voz desgarradora,capaz de hacerte vibrar por dentro, tocar el último nervio sensible y hacer que el lector comparta la angustia de esta genial escritora argentina. "La condensa sangrante", pudo tranquilamente ser firmada por Poe, y eso no es poco! Gran descubrimiento


    22. Lo mejor en poesía que he leído este año y eso que este año he leído a Milton, Gingsberg, Bukowski y Benedetti.Su dolor que plasma en cada una de sus líneas es un dolor bello, como un pequeño pájaro herido que levantas y quieres cuidar pero que sabes que pese a todo morirá.5/5


    23. I keep trying to “get” Alejandra Pizarnik but aside from a few lines that caught me, I find it just doesn't touch me at all.



    24. Viene a ser el libro más dulce y esperanzado de Alejandra. También su pedido de auxilio más profundo. Pedido que muere lánguido cuando se queda sin energía, quizá depositada en las palabras.
