The Translator's Dialogue: Giovanni Pontiero is a tribute to an
outstanding translator of literary works from Portuguese,
LusoBrasilian, Italian and Spanish into English. The translator
introduced authors such as Carlos Drummond de Andrade, Manuel
Bandeira, Clarice Lispector and Jose Saramago to the English reading

Pontiero's essays shed light on the process of literary translation
and its impact on cultural perception. This process is exemplified by
Pontiero the translator and analyst, some of the authors he
collaborated with, publishers' editors and literary critics and,
finally, by an unpublished translation of a short story by Jose
Saramago, Coisas.
