Author: Elvira Hernandez

Elvira Hernández (b. Lebu, Chile, 1951), pseudonym of María Teresa Adriasola, is a Chilean poet, essayist, and literary critic. She is one of the most important voices of contemporary poetry in the Southern Cone and the Chilean neo-avant-garde (also known as the Escena de avanzada) although she eschews such categorical markers. Her most recent book of poetry is THE CHILEAN FLAG (Kenning Editions, 2019), translated by Alec Schumacher. Some of her most important works include Pájaros desde mi ventana (2018), Actas urbe (2016), Cuaderno de deportes (2010), Cultivo de hojas (2007), Álbum de Valparaíso (2002), Santiago Waria (1992), El orden de los días (1991), La bandera de Chile (1991), Carta de Viaje (1989), Meditaciones físicas por un hombre que se fue (1987), and ¡Arre! Halley ¡Arre! (1986). Recently, she was the recipient of the Jorge Tellier National Poetry Award (2018) and the Pablo Neruda Ibero-American Poetry Award (2018).
