FERREIRA GULLAR

[ São Luiz do Maranhão: 1930 ] Ferreira Gullar gives his voice to those subdued, humiliated and anonymous voices which live under the roof of Brazilian everyday life. This writer and critic, native of Maranhão is, first of all the poet of fraternity, of solidarity, of politicized and human outlook. Considered as one of the greatest names of the contemporary literature of this country, the author of the Dirty Poem (Poema Sujo) uses the language of the streets, of the heart, to express the tragic and the beautiful experience of national life.
