“This initiative by Fernanda Viveiros…comprises a magnificent and rich collection of texts that will, from now on, be part of our artistic archives, our collective memory, of our historic experiences of two very different worlds, between two languages and two very distinctive literary traditions, in an endless back and forth between the antiquity of the Old World and the modernity of the New World.”

Vamberto Freitas, author and literary critic

“This anthology is the first of its kind, and, for the moment at least, unique, though its uniqueness, I predict (and hope), will not last long.  Editorially, it is also a canny book, for it offers glimpses and tastes of excellent writing, with no risk of surfeit.  There is just enough here to make one wish for more.”

George Monteiro, professor emeritus of English and of Portuguese and Brazilian Studies at Brown University
