Biographical notes:

Poet, educator, and journalist Cecília Meireles was a major representative of Brazilian Modernism, in which she mixed neo-symbolist themes of time's ephemerality and the contemplative life with the project of nationalistic vanguardism. She is widely regarded as one of the finest writers in the Portuguese language, as well as Brazil's greatest female poet.
