Brazilian writer (chronicler, folklorist, novelist, critic and playwright), politician and professor; probably the most widely read Brazilian writer in the first decades of the twentieth century; but, as the belle époque was fading and the Avant-Garde was coming in force, he became to be considered the symbol of the passé, and ruthlessly attacked, he and his oeuvre (famously targeted at the Semana de Arte Moderna in 1922)- info source: wikipedia. Well, that was so long time ago! Now both belle époque and Avant-Garde are old history. I have read a short story by Coelho Neto and it seemed to me extraordinary. I will come to it soon.
