Portuguese writer, poet and literary critic. His military experience in Africa would give rise to his first book, "Caring for the Living." Although most of the themes in his work are dark, he published a lighter-hearted novel, "Walt" in 1978. He translated into Portuguese from the Spanish works of fellow-poet Pablo Neruda and novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
He died of heart failure on November 30, 1995 in Lisbon, age 58.
