Is this OK? Portuguese literature by Kindle Translate?


From E-Learning VI

Fig. 1. The opening lines of Os Mais Esposodios da vida Romantica – translated on the fly into English.

A recommended read, and not having an English translation I’m able to download the book in Portuguese and read it in English this way. What is lost in translation? A good deal, I’m sure, but for my purposes it is story that I am trying to get my head around rather than characterisation and a turn of phrase.
