Once in a while we publish a number of a journal in a paperback edition for general readers, alongside the regular library-friendly journal edition: and the latest of these is Modern Portuguese Poetry, edited by Paulo de Medeiros and Rosa Maria Martelo, which also appears as volume 36.2 of Portuguese Studies.

Priced at just £15 in paperback, this unique volume aims to give a sense of where contemporary poetry in Portuguese has got to, and a range of essays is supplemented by an anthology in parallel text. These are poems which English readers will mostly never have seen before, by Adília Lopes, Ana Luísa Amaral, António Franco Alexandre, Gastão Cruz, José Miguel Silva, Manuel de Freitas, Margarida Vale de Gato, and Rui Pires Cabral; and they're translated by some of the most important literary translators from Portuguese working today.
