More than a critically acclaimed draughtsman and painter, F.N. Souza was also hailed as anaccomplished writer and poet. In 1955, Souza's semi-autobiographical essay, 'Nirvana of a Maggot', waspublished in Encounter magazine. A few years later in 1959, his collection of essays and drawings,'Words & Lines', was published by Villiers in London and won him great recognition and respect inliterary circles. According to the late critic David Sylvester, Souza was a writer of "uncommon power andprecision, a truly and terribly comic writer, profoundly original, appallingly honest…qualities of a genius" (New Statesman, 25 May 1957).
