Summary
"Excellent translation of a Brazilian classic first published as a serial in 1852-53. Sousa captures the vivacity and wit of the original while effectively evoking mood and historical milieu of free lower classes of Rio de Janeiro in early-19th century. Outstanding accompanying essays"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
