Book Description

4 Feb 2010
Imagine making poems the way an architect designs buildings or an engineer builds bridges. Such was the ambition of João Cabral de Melo Neto. Though a great admirer of the thing-rich poetries of Francis Ponge and of Marianne Moore, what interested him even more, as he remarked in his acceptance speech for the 1992 Neustadt International Prize for Literature, was "the exploration of the materiality of words," the "rigorous construction of (. . .) lucid objects of language." His poetry, hard as stone and light as air, is like no other.

5.0 out of 5 stars Especially commended as an addition to scholarly and academic library International Poetry collections 9 Dec 2006
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
"Education By Stone" is a compilation of verse by Brazillian poetry Joao Cabral de melo Neto that perfectly presents and showcases a unique literary talent. Ably translated into English by Richard Zenith, "Education By Stone" offers a poetic landscape that focuses upon the seemingly trivial and intransigent and discovering more than meets the `mind's eye'. Especially commended as an addition to scholarly and academic library International Poetry collections, "Education By Stone" will be read with reflective enjoyment by non-specialist general readers with an interest in finely formed verse that resonates both emotionally and conceptually. `Sugarcane Girl': Sugarcane is too virtuous/to be seen, alive, in the nude://leafy skirts from a young age dress/and re-dress her Andalusian leg.//Because she is so Andalusian,/she grows up promiscuous and pure://as a novice, without caresses,/without songs or birds or flowers.
