Life

Aguirre joined the Cuban Communist Party in 1932. She was a contributor to Juan Ramón Jiménez's 1936 anthology of Cuban poetry. In the early 1950s she was a regular contributor to the bi-monthly Mujeres cubana [Cuban Women]. Her poetry was influenced by the criollismo of Nicolás Guillen and García Lorca's idea of the 'Romancerero gitano', which Aguirre adapted to tell stories of revolutionary achievement.
