Over the space of centuries, the exploration and settlement of Brazil inspired a vast body of stories that sought to define the country. Its people, its landscapes and its history became the focus of an intense gaze that transmuted the image of Brazil into a fantasy landscape, a changeling world of mingled beauty and brutality, by turns quaint, hallucinatory and nightmarish.

Cabra is an exploration of the imagination of Brazil and it's the fever-dream. It is a mapping of the topography of myth itself, a search for the voice of history in the cracks of the colonial facade. Perhaps most of all, it is a search for the voices of the dispossessed, whose very identity is the tortured space of the middle passage, the in-between.

Ian Samuels is a Red Deer Press author.
