Excerpt from Iracema; The Honey-Lips: A Legend of Brazil
I cannot allow my readers to remain ignorant of the name of Senhor J. de Alencar, the author of this and several other works; for he deserves to be as well known in England as in Brazil, and it must be the result of the usual modesty of a really clever man that he is not so.
He is their first prose and romance writer. His style, written in the best Portuguese of the present day - one to be learnt and copied - is in thorough good taste and feeling. It contains poetic and delicate touches, and beauty in similes, yet it is real and true to life.
I cannot thank him sufficiently for having allowed so incompetent a translator as myself to be the first to introduce him to the British public.
