This paper uses a revised version of the 2011 annotated translation into Brazilian Portuguese by Steil as its base, and discusses the translation of Blake’s prophetic verse and the poem’s processes of phonic harmonization. It starts by analyzing these elements in Milton, then goes on to investigate strategies for a poetic translation into Portuguese.
