The most talented poet of her generation, as defined by Paul Éluard, the French Valentine Penrose (1898-1978) has nevertheless been forgotten by the vast majority of anthologies of the surrealist movement. With a truly original poetic work, full of magical and esoteric, feminine and natural references, of great sensuality and purely lesbian eroticism, Penrose has been perhaps best known for his novel The Blood Countess, based on the true story of Erzsébet Báthory. Wunderkammer publishes for the first time in Spanish his complete literary work in verse and prose. If until now she was known for being Roland Penrose's first wife and for her friendship with Éluard, Picasso, Max Ernst, Óscar Domínguez or Man Ray, this edition should contribute to her voice finally occupying the place of honor that corresponds to her own merits.
