:: Poem of Seven Faces


‘When I was born, a crooked angel
one of those who live in the shadow
said: Go, Carlos! be ‘gauche’ in life.’
This is the first of the seven stanzas of the poem by Carlos Drummond de Andrade. Each one is a digression about different thoughts on his life that pass by the mind of the poet.
The text is embroidered on the back of a jacket and is part of the exhibition on the poet in the Memorial Minas Gerais Vale.

Esta é a primeira das sete estrofes do poema de Carlos Drummond de Andrade. Cada uma é uma digressão sobre os diferentes pensamentos sobre a vida que passam pela mente do poeta.
O texto está bordado nas costas de um paletó e é parte da exposição sobre o poeta no Memorial Minas Gerais Vale.
