Uma curiosidade. Para traduzir este trecho do poema de Drummond, Elizabeth Bishop teve de trocar o "Raimundo" por "Eugene":

Em português:

Mundo mundo vasto mundo

se eu me chamasse Raimundo

seria uma rima, não seria uma solução.

Mundo mundo vasto mundo,

mais vasto é meu coração.

Elizabeth Bishop morou no Brasil e falava bem o português. Sua tradução de Drummond é bastante elogiada. Em inglês, o trecho ficou assim:

Universe, vast universe,

if I had been named Eugene

that would not be what I mean

but it would go into verse


Universe, vast universe,

my heart is vaster.
