Reviews / Endorsements

“Belatedly, Bishop has also won recognition [in Brazil] for her efforts to promote modern Brazilian poetry. She not only edited the collection An Anthology of 20th-Century Brazilian Poetry (Wesleyan Press) but also translated the poems of Carlos Drummond de Andrade, Manuel Bandeira, João Cabral de Melo Neto and other poets esteemed here.”—New York Times

“Brazil has long been discovered, but its spiritual cartography is only begun, and this anthology is a powerful atlas”—Helen Vendler, The New York Times Book Review
