Florbela Espanca, Selected Poems
by Florbela Espanca
Translated by Billie J. Maciunas
The first collection of Florbela Espanca’s (1894–1930) poetry to appear in English, Our Book is a song of the self—a proclamation of love, torment, and erotic exaltation in sonnet form—all intricately linked to the poet’s life, mythologized as it transgressed the lot of women in Portuguese society.
