On the last day of October some people around the world will line the streets of their neighbourhood clad in spooky attire with their sweet-grabbing one-liner at the ready. But if it is something more profound and altogether Brazilian than ‘trick or treat’ you're after, then 'Dia Drummond' pays homage to the life of Carlos Drummond de Andrade, one of the country's greatest exponents of poetry who shares his birthday with Halloween.

There is a full programme of events to commemorate his life during the run up to the big day and the 110th anniversary of his birth. Most activities take place at the Instituto Moreira Salles and they include lectures and symposia taking a closer look at the modernist poetry movement of which Drummond was a forerunner. Antonio Cicero leads a trio of talks named “Drummond: time and poetry” (24-26 October) while there is also something for the kids with ‘Drummond for children’ (27 October) offering some vibrant story telling.

A film cycle will be aired starring Greta Garbo - an important source of inspiration for Drummond - on the day itself, including Camille and Grand Hotel, before the programme culminates with the launching of a new edition of 'Cadernos de Literatura Brasileira', dedicated to the poet and comprised of texts inspired by and manuscripts from the great man. An open discussion with poets Eucanã Ferraz and Ferreira Gullar, and Ivan Marques (a professor of Brazilian literature) follows the launch.
