A Storyteller was Born

92 years ago Sophia de Mello Breyner was born. She was one of the most important Portuguese poetry writers in the XX century. Her work gathering poems and children stories is one of the most memorable literary work of my youth.

It is hard to describe her writing but it’s the kind of writing that carries you to these magical worlds that she so brilliant creates.

If you can try to read some of her work, it is truly magical.

I leave here my respect and admiration to this wonderful writer that has already left us. Her work. was one of the first that I read and she showed me just how magical a book can be.
