Sky-Eclipse: Selected Poems

With ten books of poetry to his name, along with several translations and an anthology of contemporary Brazilian poetry he co-edited, Régis Bonvicino has come to be recognized as one of the most talented and innovative of Brazilian writers. Bonvicino's poetry is filled with the imagery of nature, with the flora and fauna of his homeland; but his poetry is also very much about the urban landscape of São Paulo where he lives.

And while his poems often contain narrative passages, for the most part Bonvicino's work is centered on the play of sound and syntax, of rhyme and intense rhythmic shifts. His work is at once playful and wise, a poetry recognizing the serendipity of our lives while lyrically pointing to beauty everywhere around us, even if it is often covered over with urban blight.

Among his many publications are Ossos de Borboleta (poems of which appear in this volume), 33 Poemas, Más companhias, Primeiro Tempo, and a children's book, num zoológica de letras. Bonviino has edited and translated Oliverio Girondo's work and books by Jules Laforgue, Robert Creeley, and Douglas Messerli. He also edited the correspondence of Brazilian poet and novelist Paulo Leminski.
