RAPIDINHAS

    RAPIDINHAS

    It is so rare to see Portuguese-language poems translated into English
    and published in the U. S. that the release of an anthology of Brazilian
    poets should be enough reason for celebration. It is a shame though that
    most of the poems gathered in Nothing the Sun Could Not Explain seem
    bland and disconnected from the Brazilian soul.

     

    Nothing the Sun Could Not Explain: 20 Contemporary
    Brazilian Poets, edited by Michael Palmer, Régis Bonvicino,
    and Nélson Ascher (Sun & Moon Classics, 312 pp., $15.95 paper)
