1998 is the quincentenary of Vasca da Gama's voyage via southern Africa to India, the voyage celebrated in this new translation of one of the greatest poems of the Renaissance. Portugal's supreme poet Camoes was the first major European artist to cross the equator. The freshness of that original encounter with Africa and India is the very essence of Camoes's vision. The first translation of The Lusiads for almost half a century, this new edition is complemented by an illuminating introduction and extensive notes.

Luis de Camoes was Portugal's greatest Renaissance poet, whose profoundly humanistic works have influenced Portuguese literature since their appearance. In 1572 the epic poem Os Lusiadas (The Lusiads)-Camoes's masterpiece and lasting contribution to European literature-was published in Lisbon. By centering on the landmark 1497-1498 voyage of Vasco da Gama to India, Camoes exalted the Portuguese spirit expressed in history's glorious deeds. Modeled after Virgil's Aeneid and written in ottava rima, the Italian metric form used by Ariosto in Orlando Furioso, Os Lusiadas is the hallmark of Portuguese classics. Camoes's other poetry (Rimas) was published in 1595. In it Camoes shows himself to be, in addition to an epic poet, an intensely lyric poet as well.
