With the eternal hope that, one day not far away, his Statutes of Man will come true, from Cuba, our condolences to his people and his loved ones, the president wrote on Twitter.

In another tweet, Diaz-Canel recalled a fragment of De Mello’s master text, which has become a classic of contemporary Brazilian literature and a song of hope that reflects man’s relationship with nature.

“By irrevocable decree the permanent reign of justice and clarity is established,” says article 7 of the work quoted by the Cuban head of State, who added that, although the poet left after a long and intense life, he leaves his verses loaded with hope.

Considered one of the main literary voices in Brazil, De Mello was also a consecrated activist who defended the environment and his native Amazon, where his imprint of love for art and roots lives on.

His rich literary production, one of the most respected and influential in his country and internationally, has been translated into more than 30 languages, and his political pronouncements made him a professed fighter for just causes in Latin America.
