Alejandra Pizarnik is born under the name of Flora Pizarnik in 1936, in the city of Avellaneda, Province of Buenos Aires. Her parents were a married couple of Jewish immigrants who came to Argentina after spending a brief period of time in Paris, where one of her father's brothers lived. In Argentina, he is going to found a jewelry store and the couple is going to have two daughters (Myriam and Flora). They will live in a large house in Avellaneda, on Lambaré Street. Almost all the rest of the family that stays in Europe will be victims of the Holocaust, and as César Aira says, "for the girl it must have meant an early contact with the effects of death". When she finishes high school, she begins the search for her literary vocation. She will go to the University of Philosophy and Letters, but in this passage, what will leave a mark in her life is the encounter with the Professor of Modern Literature Juan Jacobo Bajarlía. Through Bajarlía, Alejandra Pizanrnik comes into contact with the surrealist poets, an encounter that will leave a deep mark in her conception of the word and poetry. She will establish strong friendships with poets who will accompany her all her life: Antonio Requena, Roberto Yahni, Olga Orozco (who will be one of the friends who will be in charge of her papers and her library after her suicide), Ivonne Bordelois, Arturo Carrera, Roberto Juárroz, León Ostrov (one of her therapists). In 1960, she goes to Paris, where she lives for four years, surviving with jobs she detested and composing probably the most lucid and essential moment of her poetry collection, Arbol de Diana (1962) and Los trabajos y las noches (1965). In Paris she will establish a close friendship with Julio Cortázar and Aurora Bernárdez. Also with Octavio Paz, who will write the prologue to Tree of Diana. The anguish, the Angst, which marked her since she was a child, will be accentuated as the years go by. When she returns to Argentina, the anguish will be even more acute. In 1968, she wins the Guggenheim Fellowship and goes to New York, which will seem to her a fierce and dead city at the same time. From there she embarks to Paris and the French May revolts terrify her. From the moment she moves back to Buenos Aires, her pain will become more and more unbearable. From that stage of her life, she is marked by her friendship with Silvina Ocampo. Where did her pain and fears come from, will be the questions that will go through all her writing. On September 25, 1972, she took her own life by taking fifty Seconal pills. Inspired by Rimbaud, Alejandra Pizarnik set out to rethink life from its foundations and to turn her own life into a work of art. Few poets crossed life and literature in such an honest way.
