By Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

You just locate real love once.

When Werther dances with the gorgeous Lotte, it kind of feels as if he's in paradise. it's a pleasure, even though, that may purely ever be short-lived. Engaged to a different guy, she tolerates Werther's adoration and encourages his friendship. she will be able to by no means go back his love.

Broken-hearted, he leaves her domestic within the state, attempting to get away his personal wish. but if he gets a letter telling him that she is eventually married, his ardour quickly turns to harmful obsession.

And as his existence falls aside, Werther is haunted by means of one walk in the park: He has misplaced his cause of living.

Translated with an advent and Notes through Michael Hulse

São Bernardo (88th Edition)

First released in 1934.

About the writer: Graciliano Ramos used to be largely one of crucial 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, tormented by 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 together with his father and in 1927 he used to be elected mayor.
In 1933 he released his first booklet, Caetés. many years later he used to be jailed via the Getúlio Vargas govt, on a cost that was once by no means made transparent. His studies in reformatory may turn 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 identification and the realm are the numerous marks of his works.

About the e-book (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, according to 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.
