About the writer...


Mário Cesariny de Vasconcelos was a Portuguese poet, playwright, novelist, and painter, considered the main representative of Portuguese Surrealism.

Due to his sexual orientation until the revolution of 25 April 1974, he was often harassed, harassed, and detained by the police for “suspected vagrancy”. Humour, irony and the use of absurdity and radical nonsense are hallmarks of Cesariny's writing.

In 2002, he won the Grande Prémio Vida Literária, in homage to his outstanding contribution to Portuguese literature.


Some of his main works:

  • Manual de prestidigitação (1956);
  • Pena capital (1957);
  • O virgem negra (1989).


“Love how the road begins.”

- Pena capital, Mário Cesariny.
