Description - Dark Domain by Eugenio De Andrade

Eugenio de Andrade (born in 1923) is Portugal's best-known living poet. He has won all of Portugal's literary awards, including the Pen Club Poetry prize (1984). He has often been associated with the generation of 1927 in Spain, especially Garcia Lorca. Translated into well over twenty languages, de Andrade's poetry has always exhibited a carefully evoked simplicity. Through naked word and image, he strives to convey what he calls 'the rough or sweet skin of things'. Distrustful of abstractions, he focuses on the world of matter, proclaiming a love for 'words as smooth as pebbles, rough as rye bread'. The four classical elements of earth, water, air, and fire are never absent from his work. Nor is the human body, whose sensuality and sexuality lie at the heart of Dark Domain. For this poet, proud to be called solar and pagan, the body itself is the final 'metaphor for the universe'.
