Edgar Allan Poe em Quadrinhos – Annabel Lee Comic in Portuguese

anabell-lee-quadrinhos

Victor Lisboa at minhadistopia has put together a Portuguese version of my comic book adaptation of Poe’s “Annabel Lee” :  http://www.minhadistopia.com/annabel-lee-em-quadrinhos/ The translation is by Fernando Pessoa, and I must say it is almost as beautiful as the original. I think there is something in the sibilant and slightly muffled tones of Portuguese, at least in the hands of a master like Pessoa, that is particularly well-suited to capturing the poem’s atmosphere of wind and sea.

  1. Thank you Julian! I’m happy that my work in your panels was performed in a
    nonintrusive way, because your artwork in Annabel Lee reflects admirably the dark intensity from Poe’s verses.
