About the writer: Graciliano Ramos was once extensively one in all an important Brazilian authors of the twentieth century. He was once a seminal voice within the literary "regionalism" movement.
As a baby Ramos lived in lots of towns of Northeastern Brazil, affected by poverty and critical climatic conditions (droughts). After high-school, Graciliano went to Rio de Janeiro the place he labored as a journalist.

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 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.


Sarebbe difficile, consistent with chi non ne è stato testimone, immaginare oggi los angeles violenza dello scandalo internazionale, in step 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.

Example text

The phrase derives sardonic humor from the fact that man as discussed in this poem is not at all concerned with raising posterity, but rather with the “sport” (l. 27) by which this is accomplished. Thus the phrase is wholly appropriate to the mood and subject of the poem, which is a cynical discussion of sexual love. In the concluding stanza, which immediately follows these lines, Donne makes plans for avoiding contact with any ladies whose beauties might move him once again to pursue love. It concludes: If all faile, ’Tis but applying worme-seed to the Taile.

Then, for the first time in my life, I was really aware of another person’s body, of another person’s smell. We had our arms around each other.
