I'm learning how to like poetry. It's a new reading for me, because I'm used to read History books, romances or tales. To be a poetry writer, you should be very creative and it's important to have a very huge vocabulary. The poetry I like most is Ismália, by Alphonsus de Guimaraens. This author was born in Ouro Preto (Minas Gerais), a state of Brazil, in 1870. He passed away in Mariana, other city of Minas Gerais, in 1921. He was a journalist and he worked with Laws. His first poetry book was Dona Mística, published in 1899. He used to write about love, death and religiosity.
