Tiger Fur PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Tiger Fur free pdf "The wildly imaginative poems of Tiger Fur read like burning transcripts of one possessed with the rare gift of pure poetry. The collection is a hymn to desire, and to the ecstasy and pain of love, each poem aching with the yearning for connection. It's also a hymn to the imagination, and Maranhao's love of linguistic play and paradox makes these poems difficult to translate. Levitin's finely nuanced, inspired renderings are, however, as wondrous as the originals. One cannot read this collection without being marked, eyes ablaze and singed with the poet's vision."-Sheryl St Germain "Alexis Levitin has given us a perfect English rendering of Salgado Maranhao's deft expression of the tonality of this people and land."-Gregory Rabassa Salgado Maranhao is the author of nine collections of poems. Blood of the Sun previously appeared in English translation. Alexis Levitin has translated thirty-one books of poetry.
