The poetics of Manuel Fernando Gonçalves, with exercise of lucidity, is naturally a poetic feeling guarded by reason of a deep ambiguity drawn into the troubled relationship of the subject with the words. A transmutation of ordinary language, intensified by the irony that presupposes the annulment of the confessional matrix, despite the repeated use of the first person. Coherence, thematic cohesion, excellent thread in building, good pace, concentrated emotion, featuring greatly in this poet. (Teresa Marques Martins)
