POETRY | ANTONIO MOURA (Brazil) – Arc World Poets : 31 OCT. London

Satirical, spiritual and political Brazilian poet Antônio Moura launches a week of UK based readings in London. Here he will discuss his new bi-lingual title Silence River with his translator Stefan Tobler and read a selection of poems from it, in Portuguese and English.

Introduced by Arc’s managing editor Tony Ward.

This is a rare opportunity to hear this highly-regarded Brazilian poet, and promises to be an energetic evening.

Antônio Moura’s first English publication Silence River brings his satirical, political and spiritual voice to English readers. He is considered to be among the most resilient of Brazilian poets writing today. He has published two previous books of original poetry in Brazil. Earlier versions of some translations in Silence River have appeared in Shearsman and Modern Poetry in Translation.

Stefan Tobler is a Brazilian Englishman with a Swiss dad, he was born in the Amazon and translates from Portuguese and German. His translations appearing in 2012 include Água Viva by Clarice Lispector (for Penguin Classics UK and New Directions) and the poetry collection Silence River by Antônio Moura (Arc Publications). He also reads French and Spanish.
