'Nuno Júdice’s poetry (...) progressively abolishes the boundaries between the various domains of physical, spiritual and dream-like reality; such worlds are converted into hypotheses of language, and therefore into the poem, through a process which is very clearly conveyed by the title of one of his books: ‘the romantic mechanism of fragmentation’.
Nuno Júdice was born in Mexilhoeira Grande, Algarve. He is a Professor of Literature at the Universidade Nova in Lisbon, where he lives. He is currently the Editor of the Gulbenkian Foundation literary magazine, Colóquio-Letras. He published his first poetry book in 1972, followed by many others and was the recipient of several renowned poetry prizes. Throughout the years, he has also published extensively as a novelist, an essayist and a literary critic.
