Perrone, Charles A. Brazil, Lyric, and the Americas. UP of Florida, 2010.

  • Earl E. Fitz Vanderbilt University


The appearance of Charles Perrone’s new book on lyric poetry in the Americas is cause for celebration. As the field of inter-American literature grows, and as the crucial role of Brazilian literature in it becomes more and more apparent, the importance of discerning and comparative book-length studies like Brazil, Lyric, and the Americas cannot be overestimated. A renowned scholar of Brazilian literature and culture, and a leading inter-Americanist, Perrone has here done both these disciplines a great service.
