Hilda Hilst
Hilda Hilst was born in Jaú, São Paulo State, in 1930. After studying law at the University of São Paulo, she issued her first book, a collection of poems, in 1950, before dedicating herself to literary creation several years later. For the next four decades, she published extensively, beginning with collections of poetry before turning primarily to drama in the late 1960s, and fiction after 1970. From 1982 to 1995 she participated in the Artist-in-Residence program at the University of Campinas, near her home, the Casa do Sol. Recognised in her lifetime and after as one of the most important and controversial figures in Brazilian contemporary literature, Hilst died in 2004.
