Vitor Alevato do Amaral: Joyce’s Poetry and A Portrait ReTranslated into Brazilian Portuguese

We are happy to invite you to our first Strauhof Lecture of the year:

Vitor Alevato do Amaral
Fluminense Federal University (Rio de Janeiro)

Joyce’s Poetry and A Portrait ReTranslated into
Brazilian Portuguese: Chances and Challenges
Joyce’s early and occasional poems – as well as his own translations – were
published in Portuguese for the first time in 2022: Alevato’s bilingual Outra
poesia edition contains poems dating from 1891 to 1939.
On the other hand, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) was first
translated into Brazilian Portuguese in 1945 and has been retranslated five
times so far. Vitor’s new translation is now in its final stage.
Vitor was a recipient of the Joyce Scholarship and Looren Residency in 2020
and is currently working on A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man at
Translation House Looren.
