The most important writer in Portuguese history and one of the preeminent European poets of the early modern era, Luis de Camoes (1524-80) has been ranked as a sonneteer on par with Petrarch, Dante, and Shakespeare. Championed and admired by such poets as William Blake, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Edgar Allan Poe, and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Camoes was renowned for his intensely personal sonnets and equally intense life of adventure.The first significant English translation of Camoes' sonnets in more than one hundred years, "Selected Sonnets: A Bilingual Edition" collects seventy of Camoes' best - all musically rendered by William Baer into contemporary, yet metrical and rhymed, English-language poetry, with the original Portuguese on facing pages.A comprehensive selection of sonnets that demonstrates the full range of Camoes' interests and invention, "Selected Sonnets" will prove indispensable for both students and teachers in comparative and Renaissance literature, Portuguese and Spanish history, and the art of literary translation.

"Splendidly produced.... William Baer brings [Camoes's] sonnets forward as accomplished, indeed often beautiful, examples of this Renaissance invention." - Jeffery Hart, National Review"
