+ Cage by Astrid Cabral
+ Renata & other poems (ppbk.) by Renata Pallottini
+ Burning Cartography by Noni Benegas
In this first-ever bilingual edition of Cage, Brazilian poet Astrid Cabral (translated by Alexis Levitin) is an insightful and irreverent guide to the natural world, leading us through the landscapes of rare and surprising beauty her poems embody. From the wilds of the Amazon to the orderly realm of suburbia, Cabral’s work urges us toward empathy and oneness with our natural environment. A poet of considerable imaginative gifts and metaphysical flair, Astrid Cabral has produced in Cage a work of cauterizing beauty.
About Renata & other poems
Renata & other poems (Translated by K. David Jackson) introduces readers to Renata Pallottini's world of "organized anarchy" in a stunning bilingual volume. Bringing the reader to an entirely new understanding of the personal and the political, Pallottini erases the artificial demarcation between the heart and the brain, between the real and the imaginary, between the sophisticated and the simple. While Pallottini is undoubtedly very Brazilian in her worldview and sensitivity, any so-called "cultural differences" do not play a role in a reader's perception of her work. Pallottini's poetry gives breath to the very essence of Brazilian life, indeed, of life in general.
About Burning Cartography
Journeying between past and present, between the everyday and the world of dreams, Noni Benegas (translated by Noël Valis) illuminates the ineffable world in which we live. Her poetry creates a space where, for an instant, the unknown feels familiar and the uncertain becomes reliable.
