RUBEM BRAGA

[ Cachoeira do Itapemirim: 1913 1990 ] Is considered to be the only writer in Brazilian literary history to be consecrated exclusively as a columnist. With his simple way of looking at life, he portrayed the day-to-day reality of the big city, with its problems, curiosities, singularities and oddities. In other words, Braga made the newspaper column attain the status of literature, to such an extent that books of his chronicles continue to be published in new editions to this day. Rubem Braga was always a man of the newspaper.
