Brazilian poet, known for his exquisite verbal invention and detached irony. Leminski was a leading figure of his generation, and the best of his poems are collected in "Caprichos & Relaxos," 1983, and "Distraidos Venceremos," 1987.

He was educated at a Benedictine monastery where he learned Greek, Latin, French, English, Japanese and Russian, but he never finished college. At various times he worked in advertising and teaching, taught judo, and spent much time doing translations of Joyce, Beckett, Petronius and others. In his later poems, the theme of death, expressed as ice, snow, winter and the full moon, predominates.

Leminski died of liver failure on 6/07/1989, 21:30, Curitiba.
