This is the first comprehensive selection in English of the poetry of one of Portugal's finest contemporary writers. Condensed and intimate, sometimes slyly secretive, Pedro Tamen's poems encapsulate moments of passion, revelation, wit, and love while also conveying a sense of history and place. This work reflects the land and emotions of a country that has moved from dictatorship to democracy over the past three decades.

Air currents are rippling
What green or yellow what alteration
