Summary

Summary

This exquisite book-length poem based closely on history and set in colonial Brazil, recounts the destruction of Palmares, the last of seven fugitive slave enclaves beset by the Portuguese. Amid the flight and re-enslavement of its inhabitants emerges the love store of Anninho and Almeyda, former African slaves.
