This essay was part of a PhD thesis, submitted in 2006, which comprises the translation into English of Pizarnik’sPoesía completa, with the exception of the disowned early workLa tierra más ajena(1955).¹ In the first part, I explore Pizarnik’s subjectivity and her ambiguous positioning of the first-person subject in language. I then move on to a consideration of the practical difficulties that arise on a phonological and syntactical level for the translator of Pizarnik as a result of this often multiple persona.
