Luís Carlos Patraquim 
Author

Vive en: Lisbon, Portugal

Luís Carlos Patraquim was born in Mozambique in 1953 and today works as a journalist and author, writing both poetry and drama.

Patraquim's poems reflect his life marked by the experience of exile. As a young man he fled to Sweden to escape the war of independence in Mozambique and returned in 1975 after Mozambique had gained independence. In 1986 he left his homeland again, which was continually shaken by crises even after independence, and in which the Marxist Freedom Party had seized power. Since then he has lived in Portugal.

While political themes dominate in Patraquim's poetry, he also writes, in addition to poems dealing with the subject of 'exilio melancolico', poems partly inspired by the passion of being in love, which are sometimes openly sexual.

Patraquim was awarded the Prémio Nacional de Poesia, Moçambique in 1995.
