About the Author
Susana Thenon was a poet, translator, and photographer. She is considered part of the Argentine generation of the 60s, alongside contemporaries Alejandra Pizarnik and Juana Bignozzi, though she was never formally aligned with any particular group. She published five books of poetry: Edad sin tregua (1958), Habitante de la nada (1959), De lugares extraños (1967), Distancias (1984), and Ova completa (1987). Between her publications of 1967 and 1984, she took a break from poetry, focusing instead on photography, especially photography of the dancer Iris Scaccheri. One of these photos appears on the cover of her book, Distancias, and a book Acerca de Iris Scaccheri was published in Buenos Aires by Ediciones Anzilotti in 1988. Distancias was translated into English by Renata Treitel and published by Sun & Moon Press (Los Angeles, CA) in 1994. Thénon's work was collected and published in two volumes entitled La morada imposible, edited by Ana M. Barrenechea and María Negroni (Buenos Aires: Ediciones Corregidor, 2001). Some of her poems have also appeared in English in the collections, The Oxford Book of Latin American Poetry (New York: Oxford University Press, 2009), The Helicon Nine Reader (Kansas City: Helicon Nine Editions, 1990), and Crossings (San Francisco: Center for Art in Translation, 2000).
