ABSTRACT

Uruguyan poet, born in de Melo (Departamento de Cerro Largo). Her first book, Las Lenguas de Diamante, was published in Bueons Aires in 1919. Highly regarded by both Latin American and European critics, she became one of the most prestigious figures of Uruguayan literature.
Includes incoming correspondence (ca. 2100 letters), manuscripts, corrected galleys, reviews, awards, musical compositions, newsclippings, cards, and photographs.

BIOGRAPHY

Juana de Ibarbourou was born in Uruguay in 1895. She grew up in the country-side and began to feel an affinity with nature at an early age. She wrote lyrics celebrating life, love, and nature. Her early works, including "Las lenguas de diamante" (1919) and "Raiz salvaje" (1922), give a sense of joyousness about human existence and, in 1923, earned her the name of Juana de America. She wrote for magazines, newspapers, and also wrote children's tales and textbooks.
Her poetry is based on what she has seen or experienced, and she uses nature to reflect her thoughts, emotions, and moods. Her later works were influenced by religion as well as a growing preoccupation with old age, pain, death, bitterness and sorrow. She died in 1979.

SCOPE AND CONTENT

The collection includes correspondence, which mention her works, her name change to Juana de America, her candidacy for the Nobel Prize, invites asking for her collaboration on works, and poems which mention her; documents and correspondence regarding her works; awards and honors; music; newsclippings; telegrams; and book dedications from other authors.
