Alfonsina Storni's work, which flowered in the early twentieth century, coincides with the growth of the various Suffragette movements which tore western womanhood into two camps, some looking nostalgically back to the Angel in the Hearth and others looking forward to women's liberation, hence its schizoidism. Finally Luisa Valenzuela's work epitomizes the language of feminist liberationism characteristic of the late twentieth century, and particularly its post-1960s form.
