Description - Gabriela Mistral by Isabel Allende
Gabriela Mistral's name evokes a constellation of contradictory images: a rural schoolteacher and first Latin American recipient of the Nobel Prize, a poet who sang to children but never had any of her own, a provincialist and a universal traveller. All these references to her mythic legacy contain some truth and form part of the legacy of Gabriela Mistral. This anthology, the first to translate the broad spectrum of her work into English, gathers selections from both her poetry and her prose, and reflects all phases of her work.
