Fathers and Sons

While Arkady Petrovich comes domestic from collage, his father reveals his keen, naive son replaced virtually past acceptance, for the impressionable Arkady has fallen lower than the robust impact of the buddy he has introduced with him. A self-proclaimed nihilist, the ardent younger Bazarov shocks Arkady's father via criticizing the landowning lifestyle and by way of his outspoken choice to comb away conventional values of up to date Russian society.

Une histoire sans nom, suivi de trois nouvelles

"Il prit sur l. a. desk à écrire los angeles cire argent et azur et un cachet. Jamais bourreau ne s'était servi d'instruments plus mignons. Le cachet, où était artistement gravée une mystérieuse devise d'amour, était un superbe onyx que lui, Dorsay, avait donné à Hortense dans un temps où l. a. devise ne mentait pas.

São Bernardo (88th Edition)

First released in 1934.

About the writer: Graciliano Ramos used to be extensively one in all an important Brazilian authors of the twentieth century. He used to be a seminal voice within the literary "regionalism" movement.
As a baby Ramos lived in lots of towns of Northeastern Brazil, laid low with poverty and serious climatic conditions (droughts). After high-school, Graciliano went to Rio de Janeiro the place he labored as a journalist. In 1915 he traveled to Palmeira dos Indios, kingdom of Alagoas, to stay along with his father and in 1927 he used to be elected mayor.
In 1933 he released his first e-book, Caetés. many years later he used to be jailed by means of the Getúlio Vargas govt, on a cost that used to be by no means made transparent. His stories in penal complex might develop into a distinct own deposition, Memórias do Cárcere.
Graciliano died in 1953, on the age of 60. His "dry" sort of writing and the clash among the identification and the realm are the numerous marks of his works.

About the booklet (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 specialty, 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.

Lolita

Sarebbe difficile, in keeping with chi non ne è stato testimone, immaginare oggi los angeles violenza dello scandalo internazionale, in keeping with oltraggiata pruderie, che "Lolita" provocò al suo apparire nel 1955. 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.

Sample 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. He looked at Alice and tried to speak, but, for a minute or two, sobs choked his voice.
