Five Coimbra Poets

Five Coimbra Poets

By Luis Quintais



Five Coimbra Poets takes historical contingency -- the accident -- as a pretext that would seem to unify profoundly different poetical voices from diverse centuries. Dom Dinis and Sá de Miranda are joined by the two 19th century poets who most marked the memory of literature which the city keeps alive and which the poems themselves keep alive of the city. Both Antero de Quental and Camilo Pessanha are, in this sense, crucial. The lyrical intensity of landscape and cityscape is alive as well in Fernando Assis Pacheco, who perhaps wrote the most penetrating and moving poems about Coimbra and its worlds, which were those of his childhood, adolescence and early manhood.
