Meet the Poet
Amauri Solon Is a longtime psychoanalyst, organizational consultant, and, until now, unpublished poet who lives in Rio de Janeiro. Now that he is semi-retired, he spends more time at composing poetry. An immensely busy man throughout his life, he was active in the field of horse-assisted therapy for handicapped children for nearly ten years, and also dedicated a number of years to "Globo Organization," a communication and entertainment group in Brazil which contains some 100 companies with 25,000 employees. He has also been a professor at Rio de Janeiro University. Yet, he has always studied and written poetry, admiring such poets as Guimarães Rosa and Mario Quintana in Brazil, Gabriel Garcia Marques, Jorge Luis Borges in Latin America, and English language poets such as Dylan Thomas and Elizabeth Bishop. As noted, VerseWrights is his first foray into publishing his work. Read.
