    Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz because she was brilliant. Alfonsina Storni for her playfulness with gender roles. Gabriela Mistral for the beautiful imagery of motherhood. Nicolas Guillen for his use of onomatopeia. Pablo Neruda for his genius--especially his Canto General, not to mention his love sonnets. Finally, Ana Istaru for her incredible display of sensuality with language both through sound as well as image.
