Anthology Brings Poetry About Brazilian Politics

Corruption, social upheaval and political excesses have accompanied us since the colonial period and are an important part of our history. Rebellion and Protest in Brazilian Poetry (ed. Nova Fronteira) addresses this Brazilian political scenario with 142 poems in an anthology organized by the critic and essayist André Seffren.

The book, with the participation of authors from different eras, tells the poetry of five centuries of political and social violence, with the startling irony that many bring to their texts, and even with pain and disappointment. Names like Gregorio de Matos. Tomas Antonio Gonzaga, Gonsalves Diaz, Castro Alves and Machado de Assis, as well as a new generation like Angelica Freitas and Mariana Janelli.

In the anthology, themes such as oppression, prejudice and injustice take a place even among poets not involved in social problems. Some of the poems show melancholy, such as Nisia Floresta Brasileira Augusta, Brazil’s forerunner of the struggle for women during the Republic and abolition.

“In this anthology, the fragility of poetry collides with corrupt politicians, inept magistrates, neglected civil servants, bureaucracy and other provincial blunders that still and always haunt us,” writes André Seffrin in his opening text.

These are the problems of today, but they also marked our history, because popular discontent is an old and always current reality, mainly due to the deep social inequality that the country suffers from.

Last December, the STF overturned one of the sentences against Sergio Cabral., determined by Judge Marcelo Bretas for Operation Reveal Fracture. For the Second Bench of the Court, there was no connection between the medical anomalies and the corruption found in the Secretariat of Works that led to Operation Calicut, the first lawsuit against the former governor.

This decision did not affect the retention of Cabral, and five warrants for his preventive arrest remained in force. The politician has 21 convictions, which is a total of 399 years and 11 months in prison.

The US press conference on the eve of the World Cup match against Iran was prickly. The game is tomorrow (29) at 4:00 pm, and the Q&A session with coach Gregg Berhalter and captain Tyler Adams was tense, talking more about conflicts between nations than football.

Journalists, especially from Iran, behaved more aggressively during interrogations. The game, in addition to the political scenario, also had controversy during this World Cup, as a US social media post removed the emblem of Iran from its flag, as ostensibly support for the protests that are taking place in the country. The Iranian federation has already asked to exclude North Americans from the Cup.

But for us, it’s a football match against a good team, a knockout match where both teams are trying to qualify. Confrontation. Sport. should unite countries, as we see at the Olympics. Like brothers,” Berhalter began.

“We have no idea what is being done, what is being published [nas redes sociais]🇧🇷 I don’t want to sound like I don’t care, but these players have worked very hard to get here and we are focused on our work. All we can do is apologize on behalf of the players and our staff.”
