Written in 1975 in Buenos Aires when Ferreira Gullar was in political exile from the Brazilian dictatorship, Dirty Poem is an epic poem that amid life events traces the authors political and artistic evolution and is by most accounts the most important long poem of contemporary Brazilian literature. Scholar and critic Otto Maria Carpeaux wrote: Dirty Poem deserves to be called National Poem because it embodies all of the experiences, victories, defeats, and hopes in the life of the Brazilian citizen. It is a hypnotic work that draws on the poets memory of adolescence in the seaside city of Sao Lus do Maranhao during World War II and deals openly with the dirty shamefulness of a socio-economic system that abuses its citizens with poverty, sexism, greed, and fear.

Recensioner i media

"One of the regions most important poets." -- Art Forum "I am a fervent admirer of Ferreira Gullars scandalously beautiful Dirty Poem. It makes me feel like a child before a tropical forest or a soaring monument." -- Clarice Lispector "In fine translation from the Portuguese, Leland Guyer captures the richness of language of Gullar's poetry--from local idioms to the language of displacement." -- Bruna Dantas Lobato - Asymptote Journal
