Ada Limón on her selection:

I chose to read poems by Alejandra Pizarnik, from her book Extracting the Stone of Madness, translated by Yvette Siegert, who has done a marvelous job. I believe Pizarnik, an Argentinian author who died in 1972 at the young age of thirty-six, is largely not well-known in the United States—I highly recommend looking her up and spending time with her. During this pandemic, I have found a lot of grace—and despair—in her poems. I find them very helpful, and very beautiful.
