By the Rivers of Babylon and Other Storiesby Daphne Patai
This volume of eleven short stories is the first collection of fiction by Jorge de Sena (1919-1978) to be published in English. Sena's stories reveal his broad thematic and technical range. The title story, By The Rivers Of Babylon, is a lyrical piece about the great sixteenth-century Portuguese poet Luis de Camoes. This story, which draws on Sena's own struggles as a poet as well as on his political exile from Portugal in 1959, reflects strong autobiographical themes, as do many of the stories.
