I'm glad someone still reads Sá-Carneiro in this day and age....

Thanks for the recommendation! I would not have known of the book if it hadn't been for you recommending it to Knight of Angels. :D

Btw, I just finished it and I am in awe. I wish his other works were available in translation.
I always believed in spreading the joy. Glad you like it.

If I had the time, I'd try to translate it. I'm much better at translating to/from German/Portuguese than at translating to/from English/Portuguese. Not sure why. Translating stuff from Portuguese into English always seems to be like a botch up job...in order to translate Sá-Carneiro and other modernist writers one must possess a lyrical turn of phrase, so much of which I lack. Only with one or two pints am I able to tackle it...

Maybe when I retire I'll do a translation for my own amusement, if I don't die first...
