Product Description

The most important writer in Portuguese history and one of the preeminent European poets of the early modern era, Luís de Camões (1524–80) has been ranked as a sonneteer on par with Petrarch, Dante, and Shakespeare. Championed by such influential English poets as William Blake and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and admired in America by Edgar Allan Poe, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Herman Melville, Camões was renowned for his intensely personal sonnets and equally intense adventurous life. He was banished for dueling and brawling at court, lost an eye fighting the Moors in North Africa, was shipwrecked off the coast of India, jailed in Goa, and exiled in Mozambique. Throughout these personal trials, he advancedpoetry beyond the Petrarchin model of love won and lost to write of personal despair, history, politics, war, religion, and the natural beauty of Portugal.

The first significant English translation of Camões's sonnets in more than one hundred years, Selected Sonnets: A Bilingual Edition collects seventy of Camões's best—all musically rendered into contemporary, yet metrical and rhymed, English-language poetry by William Baer, with the original Portuguese on facing pages—and reintroduces the genius of a poet whom Cervantes called "the incomparable treasure of Lusus." A comprehensive selection of sonnets that demonstrates the full range of Camões's interests and invention, Selected Sonnets will prove indespensible for both students and teachers in comparative and Renaissance literature, Portuguese and Spanish history, and the art of literary translation.

3-0 out of 5 stars I didn't read, but...
I didn't read it, but I'm portuguese and I was looking for an English translation the other day of one of his sonnets so I stumbled upon this book.
Here's what I found [page 70, "Mudam-se os tempos, mudam-se as vontades..."]:

"E, afora este mudar-se cada dia,
outra mudança faz de mór espanto:
que não se muda já como soía."

This books translation:
"Yet even more
astonishing is yet another unseen
change within all these endless changes:
that for me, nothing ever changes anymore."


This is wrong, really wrong. It's without a doubt one of his top5 sonnets, one that every portuguese knows, and this translation completely misses it. I was in such shock I'm writing this review!
A quite accurate translation would be:

"But besides this daily vicissitude,
One further change is the greater woe
That it changes no longer as was its wont."

See the difference?


Now, I haven't read anything else on this book besides this sonnet, but even considering translating poetry is really tough, this translation is definitely poor. Again, judgind by this poem alone, one much better translation was the latter above, by Landeg White.

5-0 out of 5 stars Portuguese NOT Spanish
Amazon's misinformation is reprehensible. This is a beautifully translated book of poems from Portuguese(NOT Spanish)into English.

5-0 out of 5 stars Revisiting a great poet
This is a great anthology of Camoes lyric work.I'm a fan of bilingual poetry editions.These translations are very fine, even though not literal.
As a literary translator once told me "You write English literature."The notes are good and background information is helpful.Anyone interested in 16th century literature, I think, will treasure this volume.

5-0 out of 5 stars You can never have too much Camoes
Luis de Camoes is generally considered the greatest writer in the Portuguese language - on a par with Shakespeare in English, or Goethe in German.His most famous work is a long epic poem entitled "Os Lusiadas" or "The Portuguese" which describes in verse Portuguese exploration of the world (see my review).Camoes also wrote several hundred sonnets, unpublished in his lifetime.Most scholars think somewhere from 200 - 300 of the current sonnets variously ascribed to Camoes are his, with a few collections having over 400.I personally like his sonnets better than his epic poem, which can be stylized and obscure.

This book is a collection of 70 sonnets with the Portuguese and English translation on facing pages.The translator, William Baer, not only translates well, but he manages to also write his translation in rhyme.This is a tremendous accomplishment because Portuguese, like all Romance languages, has few word endings and is easy to rhyme while English, a polyglot Germanic language, is not.

That is not to say that the translations are perfect.They are not.But they're pretty good and anything approximating Camoes is great.Camoes is rather a playful cynic and most of these sonnets bring out those qualities.There is a sense of wistfulness ("saudade" in Portuguese) in most of them regarding lost love and homesickness.Camoes was a world travelling ne'er-do-well who was banished from his homeland, lost an eye battling the Moors, was imprisoned, and shipwrecked near the Mekong Delta, saving only his manuscript poems.He returned to his homeland only to watch a young adventurous King lead an army of nearly all the young men of the country to a massacre by a vastly greater Moorish force.Since this King had no relatives, the country was taken over by Spain for nearly a century and lost its status as a world power.

Camoes, an ardent patriot, was devastated and you can feel that devastation in all his writings.This sense of loss in his works makes his writing almost modern.If you're new to Camoes, this book is the best single place to start.And if you've ever loved and lost, or left your home for long years, or even felt nostalgic for past places and people, these poems will go right to your heart.Highly recommended, and I don't give out many 5 star recommendations.

Product Description

Luís de Camões is world famous as the author of the great Renaissance epic The Lusíads, but his large and equally great body of lyric poetry is still almost completely unknown outside his native Portugal. In The Collected Lyric Poems of Luís de Camões, the award-winning translator of The Lusíads gives English readers the first comprehensive collection of Camões's sonnets, songs, elegies, hymns, odes, eclogues, and other poems--more than 280 lyrics altogether, all rendered in engaging verse.

Camões (1524-1580) was the first great European artist to cross into the Southern Hemisphere, and his poetry bears the marks of nearly two decades spent in north and east Africa, the Persian Gulf, India, and Macau. From an elegy set in Morocco, to a hymn written at Cape Guardafui on the northern tip of Somalia, to the first modern European love poems for a non-European woman, these lyrics reflect Camões's encounters with radically unfamiliar peoples and places. Translator Landeg White has arranged the poems to follow the order of Camões's travels, making the book read like a journey. The work of one of the first European cosmopolitans, these poems demonstrate that Camões would deserve his place among the great poets even if he had never written his epic.

Editorial Review

Product Description
Luis de Camoes (c.1524-1580), the 'national poet' of Portugal, wrote the first epic poem which, in scope and universality, spoke for a modern world. 'The Lusiad' was the poem of European conquest and its moral misgivings, its human consequences. Camoes himself possesses qualities of the epic hero. He was Galician and Celtic in ancestry, descended from the trovador Perez Camoes. Though orphaned, he was a scholar, lover and soldier who bore deep injuries and long exile for empire and love and travelled the world for his King, returning to poverty, blindness and posthumous apotheosis. He embodies in himself and conveys in his poems the spirit of the age: hectic, ambitious, vulnerable, suspended between a real heaven and a real hell. He was Melville's favourite poet, and he has exerted a strong spell over other English-language writers, including Blake. Camoes was also a great lyric poet, and Keith Bosley has translated a generous selection of the shorter poems to go with his newly-translated extracts from 'The Lusiad.' ... Read more

Product Description
In The Poetics of Empire in the Indies, James Nicolopulos investigates literary representations of sixteenth-century Iberian colonialism and imperialism by analyzing Alonso de Ercilla's La Araucana, a narrative poem that recounts the initial phases of the Spanish conquest of Chile in the mid-sixteenth century, and Luis de Camoens s Os Lusíadas, the epic celebration of early Portuguese maritime expansion in the Indian Ocean and beyond.Delving into the epic traditions of the Classical, Medieval, and Renaissance periods, Nicolopulos outlines practices of imitation within the two poems, focusing specifically on La Araucana's employment of epic models. Having made powerful connections to Ercilla's literary and critical predecessors, Nicolopulos demonstrates that the contemporaneous publication of Os Lusíadas further affected the content and presentation of La Araucana. In so doing, he elucidates the rivalries poetic, political, commercial between Spain and Portugal during this age of expansion. An investigation into imitation and representation in colonial texts, The Poetics of Empire in the Indies offers new connections between two early literary representations of Iberian imperialism. ...

Product Description
Golden Goa recounts Grant Buday's travels in India by paralleling them with those of 16th-century Portuguese soldier and poet Luis de Camoens. Camoens, author of the Portuguese national epic The Lusiads, spent 14 years in India in the 1500s. Between 1979 and 1999 Buday visited India five times in pursuit of the story of the Portuguese. A magical, exquisite narrative, reminiscent both of the travel writing of Paul Bowles and Michael Ondaatje, this book explores the island of Diu, won by the Portuguese from the navy of Suleiman the Magnificent. Visiting Goa, Buday meets the Rodrigues family, people who inhabit a 200-year-old house full of history and rats. Throughout his journeys Buday encounters those who wish the Portuguese would come back-and those who are very glad they're gone. this comic, vivid, and moving story moves from Darjeeling in the east, to Jaisalmer in the west, to Cochin in the south. It explores Mother Teresa's Calcutta, the Dalai Lama's Dharamsala, and the Poona of Bhagwan Sri Rajneesh. Along the way, Buday is train wrecked, rat bit, badgered, and ripped off. Mostly, though, he's delighted. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Awful!
This book is awful! I wish I could give it 0 stars! There is absolutely no sense of narrative in it. Mr. Buday tries to string his unrelated stories together by paralleling his travels with those of Luis de Camoens. But it is hard to see why he did so; the points of contact between the two are minimal at best and never relevant to each other.Well OK, both Mr. Buday and Camoens have been to Goa. (As have I, twice.) But this does not explain why a book entitled 'Golden Goa' does not have more to do with Goa. The book reads more like the sort rambling travel stories one might here from a friend at a Bar-B-Q.Given the quality of travel writing in general these days, Mr Buday's work is far below any level fit to be put between two covers and sold for $18! In fact I'd like my money back! Readers would do much better to spend their reading time elsewhere.

5-0 out of 5 stars Grit, Gilt, Guffaws in Golden Goa
A delightful book that shines with sly self-deprecating wit; Buday's love of India blends with a series of comic and not-so-comic misadventures (rats, spit, train-wrecks, and more) to create a richly memorable armchairjourney.Personally, I was especially intrigued by the parallel story ofde Camoens, a 16th century Portuguese poet exiled to Goa after ill luck inmatters of the heart (now I want to read something by him, though it wouldhave to be in translation).The resonance with Buday's own romanticreversals (the last of his trips to India follows a divorce) and consequentlonging to travel far is kept muted, never self- indulgent, yet informs thestory with a bittersweet quality that lifts Golden Goa well aboverun-of-the-mill travel writing.The complex history of Goa as a Portuguesecolony within the polymorphous world of India is also fascinating, and theinterplay of past and present (including a hilarious encounter with a pairof dotty Scottish sisters laden with toilet paper and gin) is deftlyhandled.Throw in tautly elegant writing that does not fear the poetic,and what you get is a truly great read. ...
