Satiricial, spiritual and political, Brazilian poet Antônio Moura launches a week of readings from his new book with Arc Publications, Silence River. He will be accompanied by his translator Stefan Tobler and introduced by Arc's managing editor Tony Ward. An energetic evening!
Antônio Moura is considered to be among the most resilient of Brazilian poets writing today. He has published two previous books of original poetry in Brazil as well as a translation into Portuguese of the Madagascan poet Jean-Joseph Rabearivelo. His poems have also appeared in many Brazilian journals and newspapers, as well as in a number of contemporary anthologies in Brazil and abroad. He is currently being translated into Spanish, Catalan, German and English. Earlier versions of some translations in this collection have appeared in the UK journals Shearsman and Modern Poetry in Translation, as well as in Crossing / Travessia, a pamphlet from the São Paulo small press Arqueria Editorial.
