Brand New! ; There are over 130 poems and twenty-seven poets represented in Poets of Mozambique: A Bilingual Selection. These range from the sixteenth century to the present but with greatest emphasis on the twentieth century, which includes such luminaries as José Craveirinha and Noémia de Sousa. There is also a broad range of topics and political points of view, as well as a diversity of racial and cultural ethnicity represented among the poets. But whether they were native Africans, Portuguese-born, or mestizo, the principle guiding criterion for their inclusion is their poems’ inherent literary value. The translator has successfully maintained not only the subject, but the meter and rhyme found in the original Portuguese verse with remarkable skill. He has also provided biographical notes on each poet and a short introductory study that provides an over-view of Mozambican history by century. Also of great interest is the glossary of indigenous terms the translator has provided. Poets of Mozambique is the first volume to present the full range of Mozambican poetic creativity and beauty in English translation ; Poets of the Portuguese-Speaking World Series; 6" x 9"; 482 pages
