Juana de Ibarbourou

Ibarbourou, Juana de (hwäˈnä dā ēbärbōˈrō) [key], 1895–1979, Uruguayan poet also called Juana de América. One of the most popular poets of Spanish America, she caused a sensation with the exuberant and lilting sensuality of her lyrics in Aguas de diamante (1919) and Raíz salvaje (1920). Her early works also include the introspective La rosa de los vientos (1930). Oro y tormenta (1956), in which she uses biblical themes, reflects her increasing preoccupation with suffering and death. Chico Carlo (1944) contains her memoirs. Her work is collected in Obras completas (3d ed. 1968).
