Product Overview

"What an occasion! What a treasure! This book makes available for the first time in English a unique body of Renaissance poetry and a great classic of Western literature. Ably translated by Landeg White, this is a truly valuable literary achievement."--Richard Howard, series editor of the "Lockert Library of Poetry in Translation," and author of "Inner Voices: Selected Poems, 1963-2003"

"This book is a major achievement. Superbly clear and seemingly effortless, Landeg White''s translations reveal a thoroughly modern and engaging Cames, one who will undoubtedly speak to new generations of readers. White''s organization of the poems by Cames''s travels to Africa, India, and beyond makes the book read like a journey and gives a provocative vision of Cames''s range as a poet. This book sets a new standard for readers and translators of Portuguese poetry."--Jos Luiz Passos, University of California, Los Angeles
