"This is Perrone at his most brilliant. Erudite but accessible, thorough but playful: Brazil, Lyric, and the Americas is the latest contribution by the most knowledgeable U.S.-based scholar of the Brazilian lyric."--Severino Joao Albuquerque, University of Wisconsin

"Perrone retraces the dialogue of the Brazilian lyric with the poetry of the Americas in the generous spirit that the poets' utopia of solidarity will serve as a counterpoint to the harsher side of globalization."--Luiza Moreira, Binghamton University

In this highly original volume, Charles Perrone explores how recent Brazilian lyric engages with its counterparts throughout the Western Hemisphere in an increasingly globalized world. This pioneering, tour-de-force study focuses on the years from 1985 to the present and examines poetic output--from song and visual poetry to discursive verse--across a range of media.

At the core of Perrone's work are in-depth examinations of five phenomena: the use of the English language and the reception of American poetry in Brazil; representations and engagements with U.S. culture, especially with respect to film and popular music; epic poems of hemispheric solidarity; contemporary dialogues between Brazilian and Spanish American poets; and the innovative musical, lyrical, and commercially successful work that evolved from the 1960s movement Tropicalia.

About the Author:

Charles A. Perrone is Professor Emeritus of Portuguese and Luso-Brazilian literature and culture at the University of Florida.

Review:

"Outstanding. . . . Examines the place of Brazilian poetry in the context of the Americas from the 1990s to the present. . . . One of the few excellent books in English that introduce the vast territory of Brazilian poets to a wide audience."--Latin American Literary Review

"[Perrone] writes imaginatively and with intellectual verve, displaying a true passion not only for the authors and texts, but also for the New World fellowship that inspired them."--Luso-Brazilian Review
"Highly inventive, complex, and diverse, like Brazil, this book engages in a conversation with other genres and other traditions."--Latin Americanist

"Achieves a remarkable synthesis of contemporary Brazilian poetic production, its intersection with other arts, and its hemispheric vocation."--Review: Literature and Arts of the Americas

"Sets out to demonstrate that contra the stereotypes of a languid Brazil, so distant from its neighbors in South and North America, the country has long been involved in connecting, sharing and recycling their works."--Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology

"An original and important book. . . . Perrone takes us on a daring alternative voyage whose logic responds to new ways of thinking of culture and art internationally."--Hispania
