Mariana Sansón Argüello (June 6, 1918 – May 6, 2002) was one of the first woman leaders in Nicaraguan poetry. She produced a personal and metaphysical poetry that is recognized as a type of Hispanic American surrealism[1]

Sansón Argüello was born in León, Nicaragua. Her parents were Joaquín Sansón Balladares and Evangelina Argüello de Sansón. (Her father's first cousin was the 1969 Congressional Medal of Honour recipient Angélica Balladares de Argüello (December 19, 1872-September 8, 1973).[citation needed] Argüello studied in La Asunción of León. She was first married to Eduardo Argüello Cervantes. After Eduardo's death she remarried with Dr. Edgardo Buitrago Buitrago on March 26, 1967.

Argüello, similar to those artists from the Renaissance period in Italy, was a complete artist. She was a poet, a writer, a painter, a clothing designer and a plastic artist. She was the first woman to form part of the Nicaragua Academy of Language and was a very known painting professor. She was also mother to three children: María José Argüello, Jorge Eduardo Argüello and Ana Cecilia Argüello. They all inherited the artistic vein.

Some of her published books are Poemas, Horas y sus Voces, and Zoo Fantástico.
