Miguel Cardoso’s poetry suggests a ‘civilisational arrival’; it is verbose and itemised, with a tendency to be gregarious. The author creates a structure attempting a full view of the world: he utilises materials which can be ordinary and currently used and others less explicit which he attempts to tie up together in different ways. He does this in a most candid manner as his books follow a sequential urgency and each one boasts its own cosmogony.
Miguel Cardoso is a translator and is, at the moment, working on a PhD in the field of English Literature. He lives in Lisbon.
