Brazilian writer, one of the top national authors and poets. Some of Andrade’s award-winning works include "The People’s Rose," 1945, "Clear Enigma," 1951, "Life in a New Copy," 1959 and "The Impurities of White," 1973. Always employing a liberal dose of irony, he wrote on native Brazilian themes and the customs of the time and was an instrumental figure in the modernist movement.

The son of landowners, Andrade showed his talent with words when he was still a child, and at age 13, he joined his school’s drama and literary club. His writings were eventually published in the newspaper at his boarding school. He initially worked as a journalist and eventually held the position of newspaper editor. In 1925, however, he graduated with his degree in pharmacology from the School of Odontology and Pharmacy of Belo Horizonte. Three years later he became a civil servant, and in 1930, his first volume of poetry, called simply "Some Poetry," was published.

Torn between his almost overwhelming desire for political and social change in Brazil and his sympathetic bent toward the traditional values of his homeland, Andrade spent a great deal of his life in turmoil and conflict. Much of the hurt that resulted from this immense inner struggle was expressed in his poetry, which has been described as short and simple, thrusting a knife into one’s soul.

Andrade died on 8/17/1987, Rio de Janeiro.
