Original title: selected poems from a number of books
Author: Carlos Drummond de Andrade
Translators: Elizabeth Bishop, Gregory Rabassa, Thomas Colchie and Mark Strand

Selected from work of 60 years, many of these poems center on Drummond’s childhood and home region (Minas Gerais), his father, and his family. Equally engaging for their humor, understanding, melancholy, and whimsy are the many poems about love and his people, where the poet’s artfully contrived “naive” persona seems to bumble along, all the while making pointed, often poignant observations a Latin American Charlie Chaplin, as it were. Like “Carlitos,” Carlos Drummond has great charm and not a little bitter wisdom amid the seemingly improvised wordplay. (Source: Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association)
