María Auxiliadora Álvarez

María Auxiliadora Álvarez (Caracas, 1956) is a poet and scholar. Her poems are born in that tenuous frontier between body and experience, memory and desire, violence and humility. She is widely read in poetic circles in Latin America, especially but not only by women poets. Her fifteen books of poems, some of them previously unpublished, have been collected and published in Spain (Las nadas y las noches, Candaya, 2009). Álvarez is also a distinguished scholar, and has lectured and taught at Miami University (Ohio), University of Illinois, and UNAM (Mexico). She currently lives in Oxford, Ohio.
