Portuguese poet playwright, his debut collection of poems was released in 1917. In 1933 he published "Antonio" and a play ("Alfama"). Some of his work gave rise to charges of immorality because of his praises of homosexual love but a temporary ban on his writng was lifted. Preferring a bohemian lifestyle, he was a self-described homosexual orientation but had a long-time female companion. He could be disruptive to authorities and indeed was fired from a civil service post for various reasons including "disobedience." He died March 16, 1959, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil several days after being hit by a car on March 4, 1959. A witness reported that Botto threw himself in front of the car leading to a suspicion of suicide.
