An itinerary for Sophia

Sophia was one of the great names in the 20th century for Portuguese-language poetry, cultivating, according to António José Saraiva and Óscar Lopes, “In classical Mediterranean images, the identification of the eternal with human reality and its aspirations for justice”. The Lisbon itinerary in memory of the writer goes through six places in the neighborhood of Graça where she lived, crossing biographical data with references to her work. In the centenary of the birth of Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen, her poetry remains alive confirming the verses: " (…) Even if I die the poem will find / A beach where to break the waves."
