Landeg White obituary

His name was completely unfamiliar to me when I read it in this news item in a newspaper. It is a obituary. The man who passed away is Landeg White who spent many years in several African countries in the educational field. His was specializing in the Lusophone part of the continent as a writer and a scholar. He wrote poetry and non-fiction and taught at universities in Malawi and Zambia. 

Landeg White’s translation of Luís de Camões’s Lusíads in the Oxford World Classics series won the TLS poetry translation prize in 1998
