Reunidos, por primera vez, todos los textos en prosa de los angeles mítica poeta argentina Alejandra Pizarnik.
En el prólogo a esta Prosa completa de los angeles mítica poeta argentina Alejandra Pizarnik, Ana Nuño nos habla de este libro imprescindible y esperadísimo en los siguientes términos: «El interés que presenta esta edición, respecto del ominoso imperativo de los angeles novedad editorial, es triple: ofrece una ordenación cronológica de un fabric que en su momento fue recogido en volumen, tanto en Argentina como en España; rescata textos, sobre todo, más nos exclusivamente, de crítica literaria de l. a. autora, publicados originalmente en revistas literarias de difícil consulta, y da a leer este conjunto como un todo, lo que le permite subrayar los angeles coherencia y correspondencias múltiples entre prosa de creación y prosa ensayística, por un lado, y, por otro, entre el conjunto de los angeles prosa y los angeles obra poética.
»Conviene destacar dos aspectos de los angeles prosa de Pizarnik. Los relatos, en primer lugar, cuajados de motivos y figuras recurrentes en los angeles obra poética: los angeles seducción y l. a. nostalgia imposibles, los angeles tentación del silencio, l. a. escritura concebida como espacio ceremonial donde se exaltan los angeles vida, l. a. libertad, y l. a. muerte, l. a. infancia y sus espejismos, los espejos y el doble amenazador... Importa menos, en este sentido, l. a. extensión de los relatos que l. a. intensa concentración en ellos de un trabajo de escritura que busca exaltar los poderes del lenguaje. Éste es -y no los angeles muerte o l. a. locura o el suicidio- el gran motor de los angeles obra de Pizarnik.»
