About the writer...

 

Eugénio de Andrade, pseudonym of José Fontinhas, was a Portuguese poet, considered one of the most important writers of the 20th century and the most famous poet by critics.

Along with Fernando Pessoa, who was perhaps his main inspiration, he is one of the most translated Portuguese poets.

Eugénio received eleven national and international literary prizes, including the Camões Prize, the most important in the Portuguese language. One of his works was considered by José Saramago as a “poetry of the body that arrives through continuous purification”.

 

Some of his main works:

  • As mãos e os frutos (1948);
  • Penniless Lovers (1950);
  • Os sulcos da sede (2001);
  • Silence (1971).
