Luís de Camões

Luis de Camões - poet and soldier (Ceuta Morocco Campaigns)

Considered the nationality’s poet through the modern epic poem “Os Lusíadas”, Luís de Camões (1525-1580) had a troubled existence, seeing no recognition of his work in his lifetime. Endowed with a rich, complex, paradoxical personality, Camões was a humanist and thinker concerned with understanding the fate of his homeland. His work reveals this lucid and so proud consciousness that make up his genius as a poet and his superiority as a man. He is the great poet of the Portuguese mannerism.

Luís Vaz de Camões, - - Poeta His mastery of verse has been compared to that of Shakespeare, Vondel, Homer, Virgil and Dante. He wrote a considerable amount of lyrical poetry and drama but is best remembered for his epic work "Os Lusíadas"

Pinto de Carvalho, na sua obra “História do Fado”, considera mesmo que Hilário “merece uma referência à parte, porque o seu renome transcendeu as balizas locais, galgou os muros de Coimbra e espalhou-se por todo o país.”
