In her recent work Valle Tiétar (El sastre de Apollinaire, 2019), she avidly questions anthropocentrism from an environmental perspective, using a fresh language of subtle resonances, as well as daring and effective poetic forms. Arróspide is the author of contributions to international journals and has forged a strong connection with Great Britain through her personal life and her translations. Her latest collection of poems Aventuras de BitBot, Aman y Llá, still unpublished, won mention in the 1st Rapallo International Poetry Prize (Argentina).
