Carlos Drummond de Andrade – Great Brazilian poet

Fonte Cultura Genial

Carlos Drummond de Andrade (October 31, 1902 - August 17, 1987) is one of the greatest authors of Brazilian literature, being considered the greatest national poet of the 20th century.

Integrated in the second phase of Brazilian modernism, his literary production reflects some characteristics of his time: use of current language, everyday themes, political and social reflections.

Through his poetry, Drummond was immortalized, winning the attention and admiration of contemporary readers. His poems focus on issues that remain current: the routine of big cities, loneliness, memory, life in society, human relationships.

Among his most famous compositions, those that express deep existential reflections also stand out, the subject exposes and questions his way of living, his past and his purpose. Check out some of Carlos Drummond de Andrade's most famous poems, analyzed and commented.


Halfway there was a stone

there was a stone halfway

had a stone

halfway there was a stone.

I will never forget this event

in the life of my retinas so tired.

I will never forget that halfway

had a stone

there was a stone halfway

halfway there was a stone.

This is probably Drummond's most celebrated poem, due to its singular and unusual thematic character. Published in 1928, in the Revista da Antropofagia, "No Meio do Caminho" expresses the modernist spirit that intends to bring poetry closer to everyday life.

Referring to the obstacles that arise in the subject's life, symbolized by a stone that crosses his path, the composition suffered harsh criticism for its repetition and redundancy.

However, the poem entered the history of Brazilian literature, showing that poetry does not have to be limited to traditional formats and can address any topic, even a stone.
