Born of a wealthy family in Buenos Aires inOliverio Girondo spent his early years in Argentina and Europe, traveling to the Universal Exhibition in Paris inwhen he was only nine, and where he later claimed to have seen Oscar Wilde stalking the streets with sunflower in hand.

For the next several years, Girondo explored the continent, even traveling to find the source of the Nile. Meanwhile, back at home he had begun xalcomanias avant-garde plays, which caused a stir in the theater world of Argentina. In he published, in France, his first volume and verse, 20 Poems to Be Read in a Trolley Car, which shows the influence of Guillaume Apollinaire and the Parisian scene.

Only inwith the second printing of this book, did Girondo receive attention in Argentina. By this time, the ultraists, lead by Jorge Luis Borges, had become a major force the scene, and Girondo continued his own humorous exploration of the aesthetic in his second volume, Decals.

After a five year period of traveling again, Girondo returned to Buenos Aires, publishing two of his major works, Scarecrow and Intermoonlude A new book, Our Countryside, appeared inthe same year he married the poet Nora Lange.


In this new work he moved away from the ultraist ideas, playing with elaborate metaphoric language.

As Borges moved toward his more fantasist works, and a new generation of poets arose, Girondo was increasingly described as a humorous or even frivolous poet, but his work, Moremarrow stood as a darker summation of his career, a work that bears comparison with the great Chilean writer Vicente Huidobro’s Altazor.

Many readers, however, feel that Girondo went further in his linguistic explorations. In Girondo was hit by a car, and for the several years suffered terrible pain before dying of those injuries in His last works were gathered by the surrealist poet Enrique Molina.
