Edited in three volumes, each one titled as the epigraph: Mischievous, Mystic and Rebels, this anthology gathers the work of unknown or less known women poets. Any way, the knowledge about what women writes is not enough. The women work is not recognized in any country in the world in the way that it should be. This book contributes to make it visible and to show it. Every one of the authors worked in one volume. They present the work of women writers who lived and live from Argentina to Venezuela, including Spain, and from XIII to XIX centuries. All the Spanish speaking countries are present with a plenty of production and with very important names in the continent literature. The volume that is dedicated to Mischievous gives us a fresh and unprejudiced vision about erotism from the women eyes. The Mystics volume explores the complex relation with the sacred, without caring about orthodoxy. The Rebels one is concentrated on the works that broke the patriarchal paradigma and the good manners. An extraordinary work developed by these women that dedicated their efforts to gather poems from women poets in two continents. This is an indispensable work in the library of any Academy fellow who respects his or herself, especially those whose area is literature, and in the good poetry lovers one. It gives us an important amount of bibliographic and hemerographic information. Besides, it contains three critic studies of dense substance and good stile. Few works are so indispensable like this, specially now, when we are becoming less interested in poetry and when we need it more than ever.
