Ana Luísa Amaral

(b. 1956)

'Ana Luísa's poetry contains images ranging from the most trivial objects to nature and the celestial world, from where a search is born verging on metaphysics. Nonetheless, she does not consider these themes more important than others, such as love, death and loneliness.'
Ana Luísa Amaral teaches Anglo-American literature at the University of Porto. She obtained her Ph.D. with a thesis on Emily Dickinson, having translated many of her poems which were collected in a book, published in August 2010.
