Delmira Agustini (dĕlmē´rä ägōōstē´nē), c.1886–1914, Uruguayan poet. Essentially a poet of ideas, Agustini combined deep spiritual and erotic yearnings in bold and expressive imagery. She abandoned traditional forms in her strongly controlled verses. After a brief and unhappy marriage she was murdered by her estranged husband. El Rosario de Eros (1914) is one of her best-known collections; her complete works were published in 1924.
