Notes

First edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author to Daniel Devoto on the half-title: "Para Daniel S. Devoto - instalado para siempre en la amistad sin vericuetos ni otros dobleces, con toda la simpatia y el afecto de Norah Lange. Talcahuano 638. Nov. 1942" ("For Daniel S. Devoto - installed forever in friendship without twists and turns, with all the sympathy and affection of Norah Lange"). Devoto (1916-2001) was a noted Argentinean writer, musicologist, and Hispanist; his and his wife Maria Beatriz del Valle-Inclán's stamp is on the front free endpaper. This is the third and last collection of poetry by the Argentinean poet and novelist Norah Lange (1906-1972), an important figure in the Buenos Aires avant-garde literary movement in the 1920s and 1930s. Her first collection of poems, La calle de la tarde, was published in 1925 with a preface by Jorge Luis Borges; Edwin Williamson has argued that Borges was infatuated with Lange, and her rejection of him for his rival poet Oliverio Girondo changed the course of his career (Williamson, Borges: A Life, 2004).
