Territory of Dawn: The Selected Poems of Eunice Odio
Eunice Odio (1919-1974) is considered the leading Costa Rican poet of the twentieth century. Her principal works include Los Elementos Terrestres (Earthly Elements, 1948), Zona en Territorio del Alba (Zone in the Territory of Dawn, 1953), El Tránsito de Fuego (The Fire's Journey, 1957), and Territorio del Alba y Otros Poemas (Territory of Dawn and Other Poems, 1974). Odio's poetry has remained almost wholly unknown to readers outside Latin America, obscured on the margins of the region's avant-garde and proletarian-poet traditions. In addition to her poetry, she was the author of short stories and numerous political and cultural essays.
