About the author (1979)

Together with Mario de Andrade, Oswald de Andrade is one of the initiators of Brazilian modernism. As a young man studying and traveling in Europe, Andrade became interested in the avant garde, especially the futurist movement. Back in Brazil he helped organize the Modern Art Week in Sao Paulo and published his manifesto, Pau Brasil (1925). This manifesto proposed a new Brazilian poetry that would influence Europe as Europe has influenced Brazilian literature. Andrade's poems are short, at times ironic, evocations of diverse topics such as nature, landscapes, cities, streets, and various incidents of Brazilian history. He also wrote novels such as Marco Zero (1943) (a trilogy), The Condemned, Sentimental Memoirs of John Seaborne (1924), and Seraphim Grosse Pointe (1934).
