Har guy rätt att döda en människa för att rädda en annan?

Bokens centrala challenge – har guy rätt att döda en människa för att rädda en annan – har genom decennierna väckt häftig debatt. Den har också blivit älskad för de vemodiga porträtten och miljöerna från det oscarianska Stockholm – tecknade med hela Söderbergs oöverträffade känslighet och kvickhet.

Hjalmar Söderbergs klassiker Doktor Glas utkom första gången 1905 och var då oerhört provocerande för sin samtid. Med sin psykologiska nerv, moralfilosofiska utläggningar och förälskade skildring av sekelskiftets Stockholm är den lika aktuell idag.

Une histoire sans nom, suivi de trois nouvelles

"Il prit sur l. a. desk à écrire l. a. cire argent et azur et un cachet. Jamais bourreau ne s'était servi d'instruments plus mignons.

São Bernardo (88th Edition)

First released in 1934.

About the writer: Graciliano Ramos used to be generally certainly one of crucial Brazilian authors of the 20 th century. He was once a seminal voice within the literary "regionalism" movement.
As a baby Ramos lived in lots of towns of Northeastern Brazil, suffering from 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, country of Alagoas, to stay together with his father and in 1927 he was once elected mayor.
In 1933 he released his first booklet, Caetés. many years later he used to be jailed by way of the Getúlio Vargas govt, on a cost that used to be by no means made transparent. His studies in prison might turn into a special own deposition, Memórias do Cárcere.

About the ebook (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 area of expertise, 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 step with chi non ne è stato testimone, immaginare oggi l. a. violenza dello scandalo internazionale, consistent 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 los angeles nostra storia, dalla leggenda di Tristano e Isotta alla Certosa di Parma, dalle canzoni trobadoriche advert Anna Karenina.
