By Alfred Jarry

« J'ai voulu que, le rideau levé, l. a. scène fût devant le public comme ce miroir de contes de Mme Leprince de Beaumont, où le vicieux se voit avec des cornes de taureau et un corps de dragon selon l'exagération de ses vices; et il n'est pas étonnant que le public ait été stupéfait à l. a. vue de son double ignoble, qui ne lui avait pas encore été entièrement présenté; fait, comme l'a dit excellemment M. Catulle Mendès, de l'éternelle imbécillité humaine, de l'éternelle luxure, de l'éternelle goinfrerie, de l. a. bassesse de l'instinct érigée en tyrannie ; des pudeurs, des vertus, du patriotisme et de l'idéal des gens qui ont bien dîné ". Vraiment, il n'y a pas de quoi attendre une pièce drôle, et les masques expliquent que le comique doit en être tout au plus le comique macabre d'un clown anglais ou d'une danse des morts. »Alfred Jarry n'a pas inventé le Père Ubu. Il n'a fait que le découvrir.Le Père Ubu est de toutes les époques. Tantôt il nomme consul son cheval, tantôt il donne los angeles victoire à l'ennemi en faisant combattre ses soldats contre eux-mêmes, tantôt il fait badigeonner en rouge, couleur des condamnés à mort, une montagne qui l'offense...On ne sait jamais avec cet homme si on est à Guignol ou aux drames de Shakespeare»."

São Bernardo (88th Edition)

First released in 1934.

About the writer: Graciliano Ramos used to be extensively one in all crucial Brazilian authors of the twentieth century. He used to be a seminal voice within the literary "regionalism" movement.
As a baby Ramos lived in lots of towns of Northeastern Brazil, tormented 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 reside along with his father and in 1927 he was once elected mayor.
In 1933 he released his first publication, Caetés. many years later he was once jailed via the Getúlio Vargas govt, on a cost that was once by no means made transparent. His stories in detention center might turn into a distinct own deposition, Memórias do Cárcere.
Graciliano died in 1953, on the age of 60. His "dry" kind of writing and the clash among the identity and the realm are the numerous marks of his works.

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 distinctiveness, 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, 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 l. a. nostra storia, dalla leggenda di Tristano e Isotta alla Certosa di Parma, dalle canzoni trobadoriche advert Anna Karenina.

Sample text

Whenever she exhibits a desire to be independent, he becomes uncomfortable. If she withdraws from him to think her own thoughts or just to practice the piano, he can be angry or even insulting. Rachel is cognizant of Terence舗s neediness 舒 a neediness that is fuel for her own fears about marriage. But she also appears to be truly attracted to him, and to hope that they will be able to create some type of compromise. Rachel and Terence舗s ultimate declaration happens during a stop on a river expedition when they take a walk together into the wild jungle terrain.

Through the waving stems she saw a figure, large and shapeless against the sky. Helen was upon her. Rolled this way and that, now seeing only forests of green, and now the high blue heaven, she was speechless and almost without sense. At last she lay still, all the grasses shaken round her and before her by her panting. Over her loomed two great heads, the heads of a man and woman, of Terence and Helen (p. 276). As many critics have noted, it is very difficult to understand what is happening here.

Thornbury, the older wife and mother who babies her husband, and Mrs. Elliot, the childless wife of an Oxford don. Each woman seems slightly unsettled in her life, yet relieved she is not someone else. As Miss Allan leaves breakfast to go write, Mrs. Thornbury laments to Mrs. Elliot, 舠Unmarried women 舒 earning their livings 舒 it舗s the hardest life of all舡 (p. 110). The centerpiece of the novel and the crux of Rachel舗s emotional journey is her romance with Terence Hewet. The romance appears to progress, like most relationships, through gradual stages of uncertainty and attraction and symbiosis, until finally they both declare their feelings and become engaged.
