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.
