Translated by Fred Ellison
This collection immerses the reader in renowned Brazilian poet Affonso Romano De Sant'Anna's enigmatic world of shadows. A master of humorous meditation, Sant'Anna offers the reader an elegant treasury of miniature histories. We enter a curious realm in which shadows take part in duels, fetch the daily paper, and attend orgies, while their bodily counterparts engage in the usual impulsive acts of treachery and devotion. At once volatile, comic and profound, the verse narratives in A Man And His Shadow form an irreverent collection of organized whimsy.
