Prado's work has been the subject of dozens of theses and dissertations, as well as documentary films and countless articles, profiles, and interviews in newspapers, literary supplements, and popular magazines in Brazil, and her work has been translated into Spanish, Italian, and English. Initial translations to English were greeted enthusiastically, published in The Paris Review, Antaeus, Field, and American Poetry Review. Ellen Doré Watson was awarded an NEA Translation Fellowship in 1984 to translate Prado's work, producing The Alphabet in the Park, poems drawn from her first three volumes.
