Carlito Azevedo

Author, Portuguese
Brazilian poet and translator Carlito Azevedo was born in 1961 in Rio de Janeiro, where he still lives. In 1991, he won the Prêmio Jabuti, Brazil’s most important literary prize, for his debut collection, Collapsus Linguae. He followed this with three other collections, all met with accolades by the Brazilian press, and an anthology, now in its second edition. After a break of thirteen years without publishing new work, Azevedo’s new collection, Monodrama, was published at the end of 2009.
