Morris, Adam, and Bruno Carvalho, editors. Essays on Hilda Hilst: Between Brazil and World Literature. Palgrave Macmillan, 2018.
The Brazilian writer Hilda Hilst (1930-2004) despaired at the reception of her work. Hilst was erudite and a hermetic stylist, which did not win her a broad readership. She had various explanations for the fate of her work, one of which was that she was ahead of her time. The fact that Hilst’s work has been garnering more attention could signal that we are finally catching up with her. The edited volume Essays on Hilda Hilst: Between Brazil and World Literature is one more sign of a belated recognition.
