In 1948 she was awarded the Premio Iniciación (Initiation Prize) by Luis Borges in person for her book El solitario (The Solitaire). She studied Psychology at the University of Paris, city where she chose to live as an exile for 25 years after the Revolución Libertadora established by the Peronist Régime. In Paris she lived with Violette Leduc and became friends with Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Albert Camus, Eugene Ionesco and Juliette Gréco. In Sicily she made the acquaintance of Salvatore Quasimodo, whom she also frequented.

She has translated and written analytical works on poets such as Isidore Ducasse, Count of Lautréamont, Francoise Villon and Arthur Rimbaud; translations for which the French Government rewarded her with the Iron Cross Medal.
