Rilke Shake

Angélica Freitas - Rilke Shake
Rilke Shake—a humorous variation on the milkshake—summons part of the author's library (Mallarmé, Ezra Pond, Gertrude Stein, etc.) in poetic sketches that are in turn comical, burlesque, and absurd. At once trivial and erudite, this unbridled poetry explodes with images of parties—and the mornings after—, flashes of the street, and reminders of Brazil.
Angélica Freitas (born 1973 in Pelotas, Brazil, lives in Berlin), poet and translator, is considered one of the leading figures of the new Brazilian poetry.
Edited by Laurent Cauwet.

Translated from the Portuguese (Brazilian) by Inês Oseki-Dépré (original title: Rilke Shake, Cosac Naify, 2007).
