Italian poet Antonia Pozzi (1912-1938) was among those women who were at odds with the times in which they lived. Her poems record her inability to adapt to social norms and her desire to live fully. Through her poetry, she sought an escape from reality and from her own complex soul and emotional life. Antonia's inner turmoil culminated in her suicide at 26 years old. Until that point, none of her poems had been published -- yet, today, she is regarded as Italy's greatest modern female poets. Here, we take a look at the last ten years of Antonia Pozzi's brief life.
