This is the only book of poems in Italian (the title translates as “There Will Be Another Sea”) by a wonderful Portuguese poet who is also a well-known politician. Alegre ran twice for president of Portugal (2006 and 2011) and leads the Portuguese Socialist Party. His resistance against the Salazar dictatorship and his return to his country after many years in exile is a well-known story in his country. I love his poetry because it captures our desire for travel and discovery and explores human ambition.
