Here we make available Luciano Alves Meira's Folhas de Relva, the first complete Brazilian translation of Leaves of Grass. Additional translations of Whitman into Portuguese are forthcoming.
For an overview of Whitman's reception in Brazil, users can benefit from Maria Clara Bonetti Paro's chapter "Whitman in Brazil" from Walt Whitman and the World, ed. Gay Wilson Allen and Ed Folsom (Iowa City: University of Iowa Press, 1995), pp. 128–146. In the future, we intend to provide an introduction specific to the translations selected and edited for the Whitman Archive.
