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.

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

Just a few stragglers left to show up. And Eddie. Suddenly, he's nervous again. Armed guards. To keep out curious tourists, chancers and… … and impostors. Armed. The taximan stops abruptly and drops Eddie's cases. But he doesn't set Eddie down. He barks up at Eddie. Some kind of demand, or order. Eddie says: 'This is it. This'll do nicely,' and tries to dismount, but the taximan grips his legs, both of which are injured anyway, and barks the incomprehensible demand again. Through gritted teeth, Eddie tries to explain that he's happy with the destination, and he'd really like to get down now, while what's left of his blood is still circulating around what's left of his legs.

Whatever the language, it is clearly understood by everyone else in the party, since it's greeted by a great woof of delighted laughter. Eddie tries a little chuckle, as if to imply he obviously gets the joke, but he doesn't think it's all that funny. This seems to meet with Gwent's approval. ' Eddie's meant to be flattered. He acknowledges as much with a slight inclination of his head. He wishes he'd corrected the Captain the first time his name had been used. He'd much prefer to be known as CP.

To his right, he hears a yell, a pleading yell, and a scuffle. The guards barely flick their eyes in the direction of the altercation. But Eddie knows what it is. It's a kerfuffle. Two men, wearing neat pork-pie hats, are swinging a third man between them. The third man is struggling, and the other two are sporting bright pink socks. The pink-socked duo are trying to work up sufficient momentum to hurl their appointment over the laser safety cut-outs and into the lethal thermal wall. Eddie starts to move towards the station entrance, hoping to get there and get through before the horror is played out.
