Ronald Augusto da Costa ( Rio Grande, Rio Grande do Sul, August 4, 1961) is an experimental and visual poet, initially linked to the poesia marginal, poetry critic, editor, musician and songwriter of southern Brazil, with an associated editor to the website of the Sibyl, created by the poet Charles Bernstein and Regis Bonvicino, besides being renowned for his studies of world black literature.

Despite the possible uncomfortable reading of his poems, caused by continuous verbal Ronald Augusto experimentalism, the poet has achieved Brazilian national and global expression. Some critics, such as Regis Bonvicino, author of "The Poetry of the Improbable Americas", are considered Ronald one of the best Brazilian poets of later generations. His poems have been published in international literary journals such as Callaloo magazine: Brazilian African Literature: The U.S. special issue (1995), translated into English and into the German in the journal Zeitschrift fur Dichtungsring Literature, among others. . Translations of his poems into Spanish can also be found on the Internet.
