Still Life with Defeats: Selected Poems of Tatiana Oro o is the first English-language collection of Oro o's poetry. Her poems draw on motherhood, the loses in the Uruguayan dictatorship of the 1980s and, most of all, the natural world. She is a feminist and her poems show a consciousness of her own body, of being a woman in the pain and wonder of the everyday. But most of all, Oro o has a special awareness of language as a body of its own.
