Dirty Poem by Ferreira Gullar

Considered the greatest long poem in 20th century Brazilian poetry, Ferreira's Gullar's Dirty Poem was written as a response to the Brazilian dictatorship that put him in exile and murdered thousands. 

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 author's 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 poet's memory of adolescence in the seaside city of Sao Lu?s 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.
