The Bodily Struggle by Ferreira Gullar (translated by Chris Daniels)
The Bodily Struggle by Ferreira Gullar (translated by Chris Daniels). Grand Quiskadee America, 2008, stapled (chap?)book.
Here is anti-colonial poetry that "promises to set the country on fire.” Guilt is useless because "Suffering has / no value at all / It doesn't light a halo / around your head ...".
Some author/press links:
Chris Daniels. (As explain'd by John Latta.)
Chris Daniels talks to Kent Johnson about translation.
[I believe The Bodily Struggle is Gullar's first book; not sure if this version takes on the whole thing, or...? -DTG]
