Sea – Poetry
In this first poetry book by Ana Maria Machado, winner of the 2000 Hans Christian Andersen Award, readers are completely immersed in the sounds of words and sight of images provided in the verses. The sea, a source of inspiration to many poets, has also left its mark on Ana Maria Machado. The nineteen poems are waves of rhyme and alliteration, and reference important writers like Herman Melville, Daniel Defoe, and Robert Louis Stevenson. They recall the signs left by the sea, the smell of the sea, the roar in a shell, the sun that embraces us. The book’s graphic art mimics the movement of the waves, with illustrations inspired by poems and songs, such as »Ondas do mar de Vigo«, Fernando Pessoa’s »Ode marítima« and Dorival Caymmi’s »O mar«. The special rough paper lets the reader feel the sand’s texture when touching the pages. (8+)
