  • The dictatorship in Portugal falls in April; in the six months prior, with increasing repression and a discouraging atmosphere, little new work is published; yet later in the year, not much new poetry is published either as "writers who had based their style on censor-proof allusiveness and their themes on protest would now have to do some retooling".[1]
