Topics: Argentine poets, Argentine writers

Oliverio Girondo (1891-1967) was an Argentine poet. Born in Buenos Aires, he participated in the magazines that signaled the arrival of ultraism, the first of the vanguardist movements to settle in Argentina.

Girondo was contemporary to Jorge Luis Borges, Raul Gonzalez Tunon and Macedonio Fernandez.

Girondo's works are the backbone of The Dark Side of the Heart, a 1992 independent film directed by Eliseo Subiela, in which a poet strives to find the love of her life, defying Death's constant interventions.
