Corina Rodríguez López (1895-1982) was a prominent feminist writer and activist born in San Ramón de Alajuela. She studied at the Colegio Superior de Señoritas where she was a student of Joaquín García Monge. She graduated as an educator in the United States and returned to teach lessons at major Costa Rican institutions. She was a member of the Feminist League from where she fought discrimination against women. Likewise, she was an opponent of the Tinoquista dictatorship and for this she suffered exile. This work presents the edition of the literary production of the writer. It brings together both his only work published in book format, the poem De la Entraña (1928), as well as his lyrical, narrative and essayistic texts that appeared in Costa Rican periodicals from the beginning of the 20th century.
