From the publisher

This landmark book brings together, for the first time in English, translations of 75 poems by the renowned Portuguese poet Maria Teresa Horta. It contains selections from each of her 21 volumes of poetry published over a writing career that spans six decades. The poems are presented in their original Portuguese with facing-page English translation by prize-winning poet Lesley Saunders. The book opens with a critical essay by leading scholar in comparative literature, Ana Raquel Fernandes, which - together with the translations - enables an English readership to acquire a sense of the formal, emotional and intellectual power and significance of this poet's work. The book also serves to underline the importance of sustaining cultural connections between the UK and Europe.
