About the Author

In this, her first book of poems, Leda Schiavo celebrates a long exile; exile from her country as much as exile from the insincere conventions of everyday life. She was born in Buenos Aires and came to Chicago in 1976. Professor Schiavo teaches Spanish Literature at the University of Illinois.  El éxtasis de los límites, a critical study, is her most recent book.
