"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 was once broadly one of an important Brazilian authors of the 20 th century. He used to be a seminal voice within the literary "regionalism" movement.
As a toddler 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. In 1915 he traveled to Palmeira dos Indios, kingdom of Alagoas, to stay along 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 through the Getúlio Vargas govt, on a cost that was once by no means made transparent. His reviews in penal complex may develop into a special own deposition, Memórias do Cárcere.
Graciliano died in 1953, on the age of 60. His "dry" form of writing and the clash among the identity and the area 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 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.

Lolita

Sarebbe difficile, in keeping with chi non ne è stato testimone, immaginare oggi l. a. violenza dello scandalo internazionale, according to 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.

198-199). The language throughout the chapter is similarly evocative of sexual congress and conquest. From this point on, Bathsheba is in Troy舗s power, and no amount of persuasion by her admirer Oak or her servant Liddy can help her from helplessly falling for Troy: 舠Bathsheba loved Troy in the way that only self-reliant women love when they abandon their self-reliance. When a strong woman recklessly throws away her strength she is worse than a weak woman who has never had any strength to throw away舡 (p.
