“Canção Amiga” (“Friendly Song”) was printed on Brazilian currency, and a statue of the poet stands near the ocean in Rio de Janeiro.
According to Brazilian historian, literary critic, and professor, Alfredo Bosi, “The work of Drummond reaches – as Fernando Pessoa, Jorge de Lima, Murilo Mendes and Herberto Helder – a coefficient of loneliness that detached from the soil of history, leading the reader to an attitude free of references, trademarks or ideological or prospective.”
