En el prólogo a esta Prosa completa de los angeles mítica poeta argentina Alejandra Pizarnik, Ana Nuño nos habla de este libro imprescindible y esperadísimo en los siguientes términos: El interés que presenta esta edición, respecto del ominoso imperativo de los angeles novedad editorial, es triple: ofrece una ordenación cronológica de un fabric que en su momento fue recogido en volumen, tanto en Argentina como en España; rescata textos, sobre todo mas no exclusivamente, de crítica literaria de l. a. autora, publicadas originalmente en revistas literarias de difícil consulta, y da a leer este conjunto como un todo, lo que permite subrayar l. a. coherencia y correspondencias múltiples entre prosa de creación y prosa ensayística, por un lado, y, por otro, el conjunto de l. a. prosa y l. a. obra poética. Conviene destacar dos aspectos de los angeles prosa de Pizarnik. Los relatos, en primer lugar, cuajados de motivos y figuras recurrentes enla obra poética: los angeles seducción y l. a. nostalgia imposibles, l. a. tentación del silencio, los angeles escritura concebida como espacio ceremonial donde se exaltan los angeles vida, l. a. libertad y l. a. muerte, los angeles infancia y sus espejismos, los espejos y el doble amenazador. Importa menos, en este sentido, los angeles extensión de los relatos que l. a. intensa concentración en ellos de un trabajo de escritura que busca exaltar los poderes del lenguaje. Este es (y no l. a. muerte o los angeles locura o el suicidio) el gran motor de l. a. obra de Pizarnik.
