Puta que pariu, Caralhooooooo, Vá se fuder!!!
(I hope you do not understand portuguese insulting words
If I had Paulo Coelho as reference I should hate brazilian portuguese too. I detest Paulo Coelho... and so do nine in ten learned brazilians. Paulo Coelho is seen here as a Jim Jones... a quack of literature (if we can name that shits as literature).
Brazilian writers who I advise: Clarice Lispector (modern - tales), Carlos Drummond de Andrade (modern - poetries and tales), Rubem Fonseca (contemporary - tales) , Machado de Assis (realistic - romances and tales), Ferreira Gullar (modern/ contemporary - poetries ) .
There are good composers too... I advise Chico Buarque (samba) and Cazuza (rock)... maybe easyer for a no portuguese speaker.
From our old metropolis there are a great writer: José Saramago, Nobel awarded, who is a enthusiastic atheist... beyond a excelent romancist and tale writer.
Sorry if my grammar is not perfect. I am a new pirate and my English is still christian.
