MEDIA REVIEWS
Joao Cabral de Melo Neto is one of Brazil s most acclaimed poets, and this selection of his luminous, often surreal works reveals why. From his early days, Mr. Cabral has written poems that are marked by a captivating use of simple language. Avoiding ceremony and circumstance, they follow centuries-old paths rather than struggle to break new ground. While it is difficult to capture the sensuous flow of the original Portuguese, these translations . . . are remarkably true to the spirit of the originals. The New York Times Book Review"
[Cabral s work] will very likely come to be regarded as Brazil s most original contribution to 20th-century poetics. Village Voice Literary Supplement"
[A] major poet . . . The poems are subtle and wise, the work of a man who has seen much of the world and who knows humanity. The Hudson Review"
Cabral de Melo Neto is widely-recognized as Brazil s most significant post-WW II poet. Influential in leading the generation of 45 against exaggeration in the use of free verse, Cabral made his nation s poetry more precise, less sentimental. Publishers Weekly"
