The present volume assembles, for the first time in English, a wide range of poetic voices and critical perspectives that illustrate the vibrancy and richness of contemporary Portuguese poetry. Special attention is given, in seven chapters, to the relations between poetry and the visual arts, to questions of gender, politics, language, and resistance. While aiming to make a unique contribution to Portuguese Studies, this book also invites scholars engaged in questions of Poetics across the board, to enter into a fresh dialogue.
Besides seven critical chapters the book also contains a selection of poems 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 in the original and with translations by Richard Zenith, Margaret Jull Costa, Alexis Levitin, Rui Pires Cabral, Martin Earl, Ana Hudson, and Jeffrey Childs.
