Jacinto do Prado Coelho Essay Prize
was awarded to Maria Filomena Molder

The Jacinto do Prado Coelho Essay Prize, from the Portuguese Association of Literary Critics, was awarded to the book O Absoluto que Pertence à Terra, by Maria Filomena Molder. The prize, with a cash value of 4 thousand euros, is related to works published last year. In a statement, the association declares that “the jury sought to distinguish one of the most extraordinary names in our essayism, which in this book continues a passionate exercise in philosophical inquiry in a permanent dialogue with poetry, reflecting on the limits of thought and language, in multiple directions, like a fugue in the musical sense”.
