Aguijon's production, under the direction of Rosario Vargas, contains many beautiful moments and lush stage images that capture the wild, brooding, sensual longings beneath this doomed writer's superficial propriety. Her estranged husband shot her to death at age 27 in , then turned the gun on himself.

Marcela Munoz, well cast as the poet, never resorts to annoying child-woman mannerisms in her portrayal of this repressed yet revolutionary soul. Veramendi also wrote a novel of the same title, taken from an Agustini poem, and the play occasionally has the clunky feel of an adaptation. Expository dialogue seems more necessary for the audience than suited to the characters.

And the attempt to include all of Agustini's lovers and mentors muddles the significance of each. But there's enough promise here to warrant further development. Hearing Agustini's imagistic, word-drunk paeans to "the ineffable" as one of her best poems is entitled in English is immensely rewarding, but Aguijon is also giving the play a Spanish-language staging on Fridays and Sundays.
