I am reading this English translation simultaneously with the original in Portuguese; plus, several literary criticisms / academic analyses in Portuguese. It is accurate and very nuanced. The translator was able to maintain this epic poem's octet (8-line verse / sonnet) format and included an excellent introduction and explanatory end notes, which are essential.
I am a graduate student at a university in Portugal. This book is making my 6-month "Os Lusíadas" research project much easier.
Most importantly, the author of this translation worked for 16 years in the West Indies and East Africa; he knows the territory Camões describes in this book. Also, he is a poet and teaches at a university in Lisbon. His English is impeccable.
