honoured author

Ana Cristina Cesar

In 2016, in Paraty (RJ), between June 29 and July 3, Flip pays tribute to the poet Ana Cristina Cesar (1952-83). A representative of the generation which gave us the so-called ‘Marginal’ field of literature, ‘Ana C.’, as she is known, created a form of writing which interweaves elements of daily experience and aspects of her inner self.


As well as poetry, she was extensively involved in literary criticism and translation, creating Portuguese-language versions of the works of Emily Dickinson, Sylvia Plath and Katherine Mansfield. She presented her informal style in works including diaries, poems, letters and even illustrations.

 

By paying homage to Ana Cristina, Flip continues its established tradition of helping to open the eyes of the Brazilian public to the varied voices of Brazilian poetry.
