is a poet whose work spans a long period. Writing during the 1930s, she published from the forties through to the nineties, always against the grain or fashion of the time. She has also translated poems from Italian. She published only six books (plus one booklet) of poetry. She has received very little critical attention, though she ranks high with anthologists and with her fellow-poets.
