The Girl from the Sea and other stories, Paperback / softback Book

The Girl from the Sea and other stories Paperback / softback

Part of the Young Dedalus series


The author is one of Portugal's greatest poets and, like her poetry, these stories are filled with her delight and pleasure in nature, gardens and the sea, as well as her keen sense of the magical.

Among other things, we encounter dwarves, diminutive little girls who live on the sea bed, plants that come alive at night, a tree that lives on long after it has been felled, and a pilgrim who discovers much more than the Holy Land.

Her themes are, above all, loyalty and friendship. Translated by Margaret Jull Costa and Robin Patterson.
