Reviews

"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
