Ana Luísa Amaral was born in Porto, Portugal in 1956. A poet, professor of English and American literature at the University of Porto, pioneer in gender studies, she has published numerous volumes of poetry and children’s books, and emerged as a Dickinson translator. She has received numerous awards for her lyrical work, which has been translated into several languages.

Ana Luísa Amaral repeatedly confronted phenomena in the literary tradition that she found strange: male-dominated poetry and the sagas of Western culture. Women’s themes often clash with images of biblical origin in her poems, or Greek myths are retold.
