Introduction

“Inspired by the ornate Baroque structures and acutely political insights of a great and egregiously overlooked Luso-Brazilian writer, Gregory Rabassa has never been more brilliant as a translator than he is here. The verbal wit and intricate conceptual play of Father Vieira’s extraordinary texts are recreated here in pitch-perfect form, thus allowing their English reader to feel that she has come to know the real António Vieira, a compelling Jesuit preacher, intellectual dynamo, and influential man of his age.” – Earl Fitz, Vanderbilt University

The first collection of writings in English from the most important Brazilian and Portuguese writer of the Baroque period, with translation by Gregory Rabassa

António Vieira’s The Sermon of Saint Anthony to the Fish and Other Texts is the first collection of his writings to appear in English.
