About the publication (in Portuguese): Defrontado consigo mesmo e suas lembranças, no declínio de um atribulado percurso de vida, Paulo Honório, que chegara a ser um poderoso fazendeiro do sertão alagoano, conta a sua história. E o que nos fica é a figura de um homem simplório, perplexo diante da complexidade da existência sobre a qual lutou, sempre, para se manter no papel de protagonista, e que teve entretanto suas ações voltadas contra si mesmo. É o perfil de um homem envolvido quase instintivamente no jogo de poder, na arriscada aposta da lei do mais uniqueness, e para quem o triunfo rende apenas o vazio e o abandono.

Ao ultimate, Paulo Honório deixa de lado o que conquistou, oprimido pela constatação de que perdeu justamente o que poderia humanizar sua vida, inclusive sua mulher, Heloísa, a quem se culpa, no fundo, por ter destruído. O que escapou a Paulo Honório foi a capacidade de manter o que lhe poderia despertar a aptidão para amar.

A par da elaborada teia existencial desenvolvida ao longo da trama - pelos conflitos entre as visões de mundo incorporadas pelos personagens - destaca-se um texto riquíssimo, principalmente nas falas de Paulo Honório, construído em metáforas surpreendentes, embora disfarçadas pela concretude das palavras.

Ciúme, solidão. .. Não há sínteses satisfatórias para um romance como este, de linhagem genuinamente machadiana, em que a alma dos personagens se expõe com tanta crueza e exatidão. São Bernardo é a obra que projetou Graciliano Ramos como um dos maiores escritores brasileiros.

E story è l'abitudine alla sciocca regola secondo cui ciò che fa chiasso è inevitabilmente sprovvisto di una durevole qualità letteraria, tanta period allora l'ignoranza dell'opera di Nabokov che solo pochi capirono quel che oggi è un'evidenza dinanzi agli occhi di tutti: "Lolita" è non solo un meraviglioso romanzo, ma uno dei grandi testi della passione che attraversano l. a. nostra storia, dalla leggenda di Tristano e Isotta alla Certosa di Parma, dalle canzoni trobadoriche advert Anna Karenina.

Example text

It was opened by another footman in livery, with a round face, and large eyes like a frog; and both footmen, Alice noticed, had powdered hair that curled all over their heads. She felt very curious to know what it was all about, and crept a little way out of the wood to listen. The Fish-Footman began by producing from under his arm a great letter, nearly as large as himself, and this he handed over to the other, saying, in a solemn tone, "For the Duchess. " The Frog-Footman repeated, in the same solemn tone, only changing the order of the words a little, "From the Queen.

The Queen will hear you! " shouted the Queen in a voice of thunder, and people began running about in all directions, tumbling up against each other: however, they got settled down in a minute or two, and the game began. Alice thought she had never seen such a curious croquet-ground in her life: it was all ridges and furrows: the croquet balls were live 5 hedgehogs, and the mallets live flamingoes, and the soldiers had to double themselves up and stand on their hands and feet, to make the arches.

Said Alice, in a hurry to change the subject. " exclaimed Alice. " This was quite a new idea to Alice, and she thought it over a little before she made her next remark. " "Of course it was," said the Mock Turtle. " Alice went on eagerly. "That's enough about lessons," the Gryphon interrupted in a very decided tone. " CHAPTER X The Lobster-Quadrille The Mock Turtle sighed deeply, and drew the back of one flapper across his eyes.
