"The Clean Shirt of It" by Paul Henriques Britto, translated by Idra Novey. When asked in an interview how he saw himself among the different generations of writers and schools of poetry in Brazil, Britto said, "to be honest, I've never fit well in any one camp." Like the Greek philosopher Diogenes, Paulo Henriques Britto is very much a citizen of the world. His poetry speaks of the particulars of Brazil but also of a lifetime committed to the world of human thought that transcends the limits of a single nation or language.
