Among the most important Portuguese authors of the twentieth century (?figura cimeira das Letras portuguesas??@Grande enciclopédia, Actualização, X, 397), the physician Adolfo Rocha was at the center of the "Grupo @Presença". "Em 1930 dá luz @Rampa, padrão de arrojo literário seguido de @Tributo (1931), @Abismo (1932) e @O outro livro de Job (1936?3ª ed. 1951), todos de grande audácia formal e revelando um pensamento agreste e inconformista que chamou sobre si a atenção dos críticos e do público, uns e outro divididos quanto à adesão aos cânones literários impostos pelo autor, mas todos, unânimemente, reconhecendo o valor ímpar que se revelava na sua obra dentro da moderna literatura portuguesa."?@Grande enciclopédia. His poetry is said to reflect "ainda as apreensões, esperanças e angústias do seu tempo, dentro de um ângulo individualista e, no fundo, religioso de visão, e a sua pureza e originalidade rítmicas, a coerência orgânica das suas imagens impõem?se . . ."?Saraiva & Lopes, p. 1061.@Provenance: Álvaro Taveira was one of Torga's closest friends. He was publisher of the important review @Manifesto, which appeared in Coimbra in five issues, from January 1936 to July 1938, edited by Torga and Albano Nogueira.---- Almeida Marques 2271.
