Oliverio Girondo (Argentina, 1891–1967) was one of the most important Latin American poets of the 20th century. He published seven volumes of poetry, including Twenty Poems to Be Read on the Streetcar, Decalcomania, Scarecrow (Within the Reach of All), and In the Moremarrow. He was at the center of an Argentine vanguard called the Grupo de Florida, which included Jorge Luis Borges, Macedonio Fernández, Xul Solar, and Norah Lange, whom he married.
