Gloria Gervitz was born in 1943 in Mexico City, where she still lives. Her work as a poet for almost thirty years was one multi-book poem, Migraciones. The first volume, Shajarit, was published in 1979, and the last two volumes, Treno and Septiembre, each appeared in 2003, completing the work. Published, in Mark Shafer's translation, in the UK by Shearsman and in the US by Junction Press, Gloria Gervitz has pubished studies of the work of Clarice Lispector, and Osip and Nadezhda Mandelstam, and translated poetry by, among others, Anna Akhmatova, Samuel Beckett, Kenneth Rexroth, Susan Howe, and Lorine Niedecker. Her own work has also been translated into French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, and Russian.
