Ibarbourou, Juana de
Born Mar. 8, 1895, in Melo, in the department of Cerro Largo. Uruguayan poet.
Ibarbourou’s works were first published in 1915. Her early collections of verse— Tongues of Diamonds (1919), Savage Root (1922, revised edition 1924), and Rose of the Winds (1930)—express a love of life and a pantheistic closeness to nature. Mystical moods permeate her later collections Loss (1950) and Songs of Fate (1954) and the story collections Biblical Prints (1934), Praise to the Holy Virgin (1934), and Little Carlo (1944).
