Poet and photographer Antonia Pozzi, born in Milan in 1912, lived a brief life, dying by suicide in 1938 in despair about the world. She left behind photographs, diaries, notebooks, letters, and over 300 poems; none of her poems were published in her lifetime. Pozzi’s poetry was posthumously altered by her father Roberto and then published, which led to a complicated publication history. In 1989 her work was restored to its original form in Parole (“Words”) and later in Tutte le opere (“Collected Works”).
