Maria Teresa Horta (Portuguese poe, fiction writer and journalist) lauches in Brazil Azul Cobalto, a short story book edited by Oficina Raquel (Rio de Janeiro). One of the most important figures in Portuguese literature, Maria Teresa Horta perfectly combines the fierce struggles for the causes she defends and brilliance of her wrting. With a vast and differentiated literary collection that includes poetry and prose, the work of the writer has eroticism and social intervention as constant themes. The texts, on the whole, talk about issues that permeate the feminine universe from stories that value women in time and space within the literary scene. In addition, they deal with themes that were old to literature, especially the Portuguese, such as the pretense and the relationship with the countr’s history.
