GERALDO CARNEIRO

[ Belo Horizonte: 1952 ] Geraldo Carneiro makes poetry the first of the numerous art forms that he practices.
From musical lirics to movie and television scripts, blossom the humour, the creativity and the fertility of this poet who searches before anything else, for pieces of speech, for the fragments, in the words of the critic Silviano Santiago. In this post-modernity, rich in languages and expressways, Geraldo Carneiro, a native of Minas Gerais, with his baroque demons is simultaneously the reader,as well as the suffering author, exacerbating, capable of loving words and believing in poetry as the vehicle for questioning our time.
