And the last piece of it:

A people exist who lean the flag
To cover such infamy and cowardice!..

Descend from the immense space, oh ocean’s eagle!

Yes, this is a poem in parts. Six, to be exact. Yes, they’ll all be in different entrances.

Where from he is son, where is his home?

Navio Negreiro part 1

Castro Alves was a poet from the third generation of romantism and “Navio Negreiro” is one of the most popular poems ever written in Brazil. I’m not quite sure why the translators didn’t translate the title, but I’m not going to argue with experienced translators after I’ve read the lady from the previous post discurring forever on how to translate a child’s poem I wouldn’t have given twenty minutes of thought before translating everything literally and pretty much ruining the thing. 638 mais palavras
