Olga Orozco was born in Toay, Province of La Pampa, Argentina, in 1920. She graduated as a teacher at the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters of the University of Buenos Aires. She was part of the so-called '40s generation, of surrealist influence (although Olga never wanted to be included in 'any cage' to define her), and published her first poems in Canto magazine. Around that same time she commented on classical Spanish and Argentine theater on Radio Municipal; she was a theater actress and worked on Radio Splendid. In the sixties she was editor of Claudia magazine and organized the Clarín newspaper's horoscope between 1968 and 1974, answering sentimental queries and astrological calculations.
She also worked as a translator from French and Italian: Pirandello's Vestir al desnudo, Ionesco's Las sillas and La lección; Anouilh's Becket o el honor de Dios to give lectures in Switzerland, Italy and France.
Her poems attracted poets of the new generations. She read superbly and her recitals turned out to be performances that aroused the audience's enthusiasm. An irresistible force emanated from Olga Orozco.
In Olga's life and work there is a presence of the magical, of the symbolic:
"... in everything I do there is an enormous faith, an enormous faith in the transcendent future, an enormous faith in the other side of death, this for me is the lengthening of life. Death is not a catastrophe, so that even when we talk about death I see it as a bridge to get to another place, as a proof...".
Considered one of the most important Argentine and Latin American poets, she was awarded several prizes, one of the most relevant of which is the Juan Rulfo Prize for Latin American and Caribbean Literature, which she won in 1998.
She died in Buenos Aires in 1991.
