Norah Lange

Norah Lange (October 23, 1905 – August 5, 1972) was an Argentine author, associated with the Buenos Aires avant garde of the 1920s and 1930s.

A member of the Florida group, which also included figures such as Oliverio Girondo (whom she married in 1943) and Jorge Luis Borges (who dedicated an article to her in his first book of prose, Inquisiciones), she published in the "ultraist" magazines Prisma, Proa, and Martín Fierro.

Her ultramodernist poetry influenced other well-known Argentine writers such as Nydia Lamarque, Maria Elena Walsh, Maria Dhialma Tiberti, and Ines Malinow.

In 1958, SADE (the Argentine Society of writers) awarded her their Grand Prize of Honor.
