About the Author
Selva Casal (Uruguay) is the award-winning author of sixteen books of poetry, most recently Abro las puertas de un jardín de plata (I Open the Doors of a Silver Garden) (Trópico Sur Editor, 2014). A former penal lawyer, Casal is inspired by her experiences working with people who have faced injustice. Her 1975 publication of No vivimos en vano (WE DO NOT LIVE IN VAIN (Veliz Books, 2020)) during the military dictatorship in Uruguay resulted in her losing her position as a university professor of sociology. Her work has received prizes in Uruguay, Argentina, and Mexico, such as the 2010 Premio Morosoli de Poesía and the Premio Nacional del Ministerio de Educacirón y Cultura.
