Luís Filipe Parrado
'Between the avidness of reading and a certain meta-poetic tension, Luis Filipe Parrado’s poetry builds up a space whose reading instructions are simple and almost suggested by himself: 'hands have to be well washed before sitting down at poetry's table.' Then one has to focus, un-focus, and focus again on the objects. It is the light that Luis Filipe Parrado brings onto the objects that is demanding.'
Luís Filipe Parrado was born in Seixal, a small town on the south bank of the river Tagus. He is a secondary school teacher.
