Early life[ edit ] Alejandra Pizarnik was born on April 29, , in Avellaneda , a city within the Greater Buenos Aires metropolitan area , Argentina ,  to Jewish immigrant parents from Rowno now Ukraine. She also had a marked habit of gaining weight. These contingencies seriously undermined her self-esteem.
For this same reason, it is possible that she began to take amphetamines—the same drugs that she became strongly addicted to--, which caused long periods of sleeping disorders such as euphoria and insomnia. She was an avid reader of fiction and poetry. Beginning with novels, she delved into more literature with similar topics to learn from different points of view. This sparked an interest early on for literature and also for the unconscious, which in turn gave rise to her interest in psychoanalysis.
Pizarnik was apolitical. She also studied French religious history and literature at the Sorbonne. Paz even wrote the prologue for her fourth poetry book, The Tree of Diana She was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in ,  and in a Fulbright Scholarship.
