Brazilian playwright Ariano Suassuna dies at 87

Aug 12, 2014
Brazilian playwright and author Ariano Suassuna died on Wednesday at the age of 87 after suffering a stroke.

Suassuna underwent a surgery after being admitted to a hospital in Recife, Pernambuco state, on Monday. He fell into a coma on Tuesday.

Senate President Renan Calheiros said in a statement that Suassuna's death is "an irreparable loss for the national culture" but his books will make him live forever.

Suassuna, a member of the Brazilian Academy of Letters, is also a renowned regional writer and his works featured the struggles, beliefs and daily life of the northeastern man. His most known work, A Dog's Will, was turned into film and TV series.

"In every popular play, in every corner of the northeast, Ariano Suassuna will revive," Calheiros added.

Suassuna is the third well-known Brazilian writer who died this month. On July 18, writer Joao Ubaldo Ribeiro, also a member of the Brazilian Academy of Letters, died at 73 of pulmonary embolism and writer Rubem Alves died on July 19 of multiple organ failure.
