Description

CamĂ”es (1524-1580) Ă© o maior poeta da nossa lĂ­ngua, e Os LusĂ­adas a sua obra maior. Publicada em 1572, Ă© poema Ă©pico em dez cantos, narrando os feitos dos Portugueses em suas guerras e descobertas marĂ­timas, em uma visĂŁo maravilhosa e exaltada, grandiosa e de comovente patriotismo. Apesar das barreiras que se pĂ”em ao leitor moderno, as referĂȘncias mitolĂłgicas Ă s vezes recĂŽnditas, as mençÔes a episĂłdios e personagens histĂłricos menos conhecidos, a sua modernidade Ă© surpreendente e a pessoa do poeta se impĂ”e admirĂĄvel, concreta e Ășnica em sua genialidade. A força da linguagem, a beleza dos seus versos, desafia qualquer comentĂĄrio. (Summary by zaaf)

CamÔes (1524-1580) is considered Portugal's greatest poet, and Os Lusiadas, his masterpiece. Published in 1572, this epic poem in ten cantos sings of the deeds of the Portuguese in their warfare and overseas discoveries, in an exalted vision of wonder, grandiloquence and moving patriotism. Once the obvious obstacles to the modern reader are surmounted, such as arcane mythological references or mentions to lesser known historic passages and characters, the modernity of this work may be surprising, and the author's persona emerges in his unique, concrete and admirable geniality. The strength of his diction and the beauty of his verses simply defy words. (Summary translated by Leni)
