Book Description: Avon/Bard, 1984. paperback. Book Condition: Very Good In Wrappers. New York. 1984. Avon/Bard. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Wrappers. Paperback Original. Translated from the Portuguese by Dorothy Scott Loos. 281 pages. February 1984. paperback. Cover art by D. Pacinelli. 0380848228. keywords: Literature Translated Brazil Latin America. inventory # 24064. FROM THE PUBLISHER - A TRAGIC BOND - Her mother is the coldly beautiful mistress of a rich Brazilian estate. And Dora, nearly crushed by her mother’s domination, is about to become a woman in one violent moment of passion. A highly acclaimed psychological novel, DORA, DORALINA immerses us in an unforgettable story of love, betrayal, and the bond between mother and daughter which not even death can break. Written with extraordinary insight, it lays bare the lives of two women, their innermost feelings of pain and fulfillment, and their fatal rivalry for a man they both want. As a young woman’s torment drives her from the vast, isolated fazendas of the provinces to the wildly raucous streets of glittering Rio, there emerges a majestic portrait of a colorful, vibrant, and incomparably grand Brazil. TRANSLATED BY DOROTHY SCOTT LOOS. Rachel de Queiroz (November 17, 1910-November 4, 2003) was a Brazilian author and journalist. She was born in Ceara, in the northeast of Brazil. Rachel de Queiroz began her career in journalism in 1927 and entered the literary world with the novel O Quinze in 1930. She further established her literary reputation with JOAO MIGUEL, CAMINA DE FEDRAS and AS TRES MARIAS. It was recently made into a film. In 1964 she became Brazil’s representative to the UN and in 1977 became the first woman writer to enter the Academia Brasileira de Letras. De Queiroz won the Camões Prize (1993) and the Prêmio Jabuti. Rachel de Queiroz has also written children’s literature, drama and television scripts. She is a member of the Brazilian Academy of Letters and lives in Ceara and Rio with her husband. Rachel de Queiroz died of heart disease in her apartment at Rio de Janeiro about two weeks before her 93rd birthday. Bookseller Inventory # 24064

Book Description: Suhrkamp, 2000. Taschenbuch. Book Condition: Gebraucht. Gebraucht - Gut Schnitt/Schutzumschlag mit geringen Lagerspuren, unbenutzt, Stempel unten, Mängelexemplar - Moacyr Scliar, geb. 1937, gest. 2011, war Arzt und Schriftsteller, wuchs als Kind russisch-jüdischer Immigranten im damaligen jüdischen Viertel Bom Fim in Porto Alegre auf. Er gilt neben Clarice Lispector als der wichtigste Vertreter der brasilianisch-jüdischen Literatur und zählt zu den meist übersetzten Gegenwartsschriftstellern Brasiliens. In mehr als 70 Werken unterschiedlicher Genres Romane, Erzählungen, Essays sowie Kinder- und Jugendbücher setzte er sich mit dem Judentum, der Medizin und der Lebenswirklichkeit der brasilianischen Mittelklasse auseinander. Außerdem schrieb er Kolumnen und Beiträge für brasilianische Zeitungen, u.a. für die 'Folha de S. Paulo' und die 'Zero Hora'. Für seine Werke erhielt Scliar zahlreiche Preise, darunter mehrfach den Prêmio Jabuti und den Prêmio Casa de las Américas. Seit 2003 gehörte er der Academia Brasileira de Letras an. Scliars Verdienst ist es, die jüdische Thematik und Fragen, mit denen sich Immigranten im modernen Brasilien konfrontiert sehen, nachhaltig in der brasilianischen Literatur verankert zu haben.

Book Description: Knopf, 1992. paperback. Book Condition: Very Good In Wrappers. New York. 1992. Knopf. Uncorrected Proof. Very Good In Wrappers. Translated from the Portuguese by Helen Lane. 401 pages. paperback. 0394589971. keywords: Literature Translated Brazil Latin America Women. inventory # 17896. FROM THE PUBLISHER - ‘1 left Trindade by train on a Friday long ago. I remember clearly that it was raining. As soon as the train whistle gave the signal to leave, I forced myself to look through the dirty windowpanes. I saw nothing but the downpour that blended the landscape with those who were standing in the station, frozen to the spot in astonishment, and who, unlike me, would never leave Trindade. Now, however, it is time to return. I am therefore coming back this June, arriving by the same train that I left on. I chose Friday so as to have the illusion that twenty years had not gone by. As for the rest, we 11 wait and see. It’s life that whispers the message in our ear. Signed, Caetana.’ Many years have passed since Caetana and her traveling carnival swept through Trindade, a small city in the interior of Brazil, leaving behind countless hopes and illusions as well as broken hearts. Now she has decided to return, rekindling myriad old flames-and wounds-among the town’s citizens. Set against the backdrop of a thriving Brazil-new economic programs promise to make the country a top industrial power in Latin America, and Pelé is leading the country to an unprecedented third World Cup championship-this latest novel by one of Brazil’s most renowned writers is at once an intimate chronicle of the torrid intrigues of a provincial town and a grandiose spectacle in which myth and reality are inextricably fused. Caetana has spent her life pretending to be one of the world’s great divas, and she draws into her world and into her fantasy the town’s most illustrious citizens-among them, Polidoro, the cattle baron and town patriarch, whose romantic lust for her is all-consuming; Virgilio, the Greek, a historian and poet; Ernesto, the deeply insecure pharmacist; and the town whores, Gioconda and the Three Graces, who know everybody’s secrets. CAETANA’S SWEET SONG is powerfully erotic and brilliantly composed-and resounds with the themes and passions of Latin America’s literary tradition. NELIDA PINON was born in 1937 in Rio de Janeiro, where she now lives. Since 1961 she has published eight novels and three collections of stories. She has taught at universities in Brazil and at Columbia, Johns Hopkins, and the University of Miami, where she is the Stanford Professor of Humanities. In 1989 she became the fourth woman to be elected a member of the Academia Brasileira de Letras. Piñon’s work has been translated into Spanish, French, Italian, and Polish, and some of her stories have appeared in American anthologies. The Republic of Dreams was her first novel to appear in English. Jacket illustration by Karen Caldicott. Jacket design by Megan Wilson. Bookseller Inventory # 17896

Drawings by Enrico Bianco. Translated from the Portuguese by Fred P. Ellison. 170 pages. hardcover. Cover art by Enrico Bianco. 0292784015. keywords: Literature Translated Brazil Latin America. inventory # 3330. FROM THE PUBLISHER - These are the recollections of Alexandre - of his life, his death-in-life, and his ultimate death as they are played out against the mobile tapestry of the valley where he was born. The valley itself, in the backlands of the state of Bahia, Brazil, alternates at different stages in Alexandre’s consciousness between reality and symbol. It swings from a harsh regional specificity to become the panorama of all human life, its endless, eroding wind the devouring hostility of all environments and its pain the pain of every human being in the face of his own brutality and that of others. Throughout the novel Alexandre’s mind ranges from sharp awareness, through hallucination, to oblivion (‘a man dies while alive,’ says Jeronimo, his mentor), and back again as he experiences the violent, obtuse phenomena of life in the valley - his universe and ours. This latter-day Lazarus leaves the resisting hills and black sky once only, hounded by the valley dwellers who believe he has murdered his wife, her father, and her brother. Yet despite his awareness of the horror of the valley and his intuition of something beyond it, it is precisely his contact with the gentler existence to which he escapes that forces Alexandre to recognize his nature for what it is. Turning his back on a greater and more varied range of feeling and experience, he chooses the narrow ferocity of the valley, to which he returns to die the final death for which the earlier deaths have prepared him. This best-known novel by Adonias Filho, the Brazilian writer whose work has been compared to that of Emily Brontë and William Faulkner, was translated by Fred P. Ellison, Professor of Spanish and Portuguese at The University of Texas. Texas Pan American Series. The translator, Fred P. Ellison, also translated The Three Marias, by Rachel de Queiroz, and is the author of Brazil’s New Novel: Four Northeastern Masters. Specialist in Brazilian and Spanish-American literature, he met the author of Memórias de Ldzaro in Rio de Janeiro in 1966 and determined to bring to the English-speaking reader Adonias Filho’s powerful masterwork. Originally published in Brazil under the title Memorias de Lazaro, 1952. Adonias Aguiar Filho (November 27, 1915 – August 2, 1990) was a writer and novelist from Bahia, Brazil, and a member of the Academia Brasileira de Letras. Filho was born in Itajuípe, Brazil, the son of Adonias Aguiar and Rachel Bastos de Aguiar. In 1936, 2 years after finishing high school in Salvador, he moved from the south of Bahia to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil’s capital at the time, where he continued his career in Journalism, previously started in Salvador. He worked in renowned newspapers such as Correio da Manhã as well as a literary critic for Cadernos da ‘Hora Presente’, from São Paulo em 1937, ‘A Manhã’, from 1944 to 1945, besides ‘Jornal de Letras’ (from 1955 to 1960) and ‘Diário de Notícias’ (1958 to 1960). In São Paulo, he also collaborated with O Estado de S. Paulo and ‘Folha da Manhã’. Between 1946 and 1950, he ran the book publishing company ‘A Noite’. He was the director of the Serviço Nacional de Teatro, in 1954, and director of the Biblioteca Nacional from 1961 to 1971. At the same time, he worked at the Agência Nacional at the Ministério da Justiça. In 1966 he was elected vice-president of the Associação Brasileira de Imprensa and in the following year, member of the Conselho Federal de Cultura. He was re-elected in 1969, 1971 and 1973. He was the presidente of the Associação Brasileira de Imprensa in 1972 and president of the Conselho Federal de Cultura from 1977 to 1990, when he died.

Book Description: University Of Texas Press, 1963. hardcover. Austin. 1963. University Of Texas Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket. Translated from the Portuguese by Fred P. Ellison. Illustrated by Aldemir Martins. 178 pages. hardcover. Cover: Aldemir Martins. keywords: Literature Translated Brazil Latin America Women. inventory # 15415. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Through this translation of As Trés Marias the literary art of Rachel de Queiroz, one of Brazil’s leading novelists, is introduced for the first time to the English-speaking world. None of her other books has been translated into English. Since the 1930’s Rachel de Queiroz has been an important public figure in Brazil, noted for the emphatic expression of her humanitarian philosophy, her liberal political opinions, and her forthright views on the status of women in society. A novelist, playwright, and essayist, her voice has often been effectively raised in behalf of social reform and cultural and educational progress. Important for their intrinsic artistic merit, Rachel de Queiroz’ literary works are also significant because they reveal an intense social consciousness and a deep feeling for her people, both derived from life in the arid backlands of her native Ceara. As Trés Marias is perhaps her most widely significant work for it depends less on regional appeal than have her other novels. As the three Marias - Maria Augusta and her two friends, Maria Jose and Maria Gloria - approach womanhood, they are forced into an unfamiliar world. The narrator, Maria Augusta, struggles with her innocence, challenges society, succumbs to her rebellious desire for freedom, and is disillusioned by her experiences. As she and her two friends become acquainted with aspects of life which were hidden from them at home arid only partially revealed at school, they are confronted with the complexities that accompany experience. The wish to satisfy a ‘virgin’s curiosity’ is coupled with fear and hesitancy. The smallest compromise results in conflict and tension. Introspection and judgment, however, supplant the child’s naive spontaneity, and the girls slowly gain insight into the nature of their womanliness. The story of Maria Augusta and her friends is warm and personal, a story with universal implications. Through his personal acquaintance with the author, his knowledge of her country, and his mastery of the Portuguese language, Fred P. Ellison, the translator, was enabled to capture the author’s graceful and simple style and has successfully retained the perspective of an idealistic and gradually maturing girl. Rachel de Queiroz (November 17, 1910-November 4, 2003) was a Brazilian author and journalist. She was born in Ceara, in the northeast of Brazil. Rachel de Queiroz began her career in journalism in 1927 and entered the literary world with the novel O Quinze in 1930. She further established her literary reputation with JOAO MIGUEL, CAMINA DE FEDRAS and AS TRES MARIAS. It was recently made into a film. In 1964 she became Brazil’s representative to the UN and in 1977 became the first woman writer to enter the Academia Brasileira de Letras. De Queiroz won the Camões Prize (1993) and the Prêmio Jabuti. Rachel de Queiroz has also written children’s literature, drama and television scripts. She is a member of the Brazilian Academy of Letters and lives in Ceara and Rio with her husband. Rachel de Queiroz died of heart disease in her apartment at Rio de Janeiro about two weeks before her 93rd birthday. Over the past fifteen years Fred P. Ellison has been interested in Rachel de Queiroz’ works and has corresponded with her. She was included in his study of the novelists of Brazil’s northeast, BRAZIL’S NEW NOVEL: FOUR NORTHEASTERN MASTERS, published in 1954. In 1962, under the auspices of the Organization of American States, he sojourned in Rio de Janeiro, where he researched in contemporary Brazilian literature. At this time he visited the convent school pictured in the novel and met the prototypes of some of its characters. Bookseller Inventory # 15415

Book Description: Wien ; Linz ; Weitra ; München : Edition München, [1998]., 1998. Illustrierter Pappband. Book Condition: Sehr gut. Erstausgabe. 39 (1) Seiten. 17,6 cm. Sehr guter Zustand. - Curt Meyer-Clason (* 19. September 1910 in Ludwigsburg; † 13. Januar 2012[1][2] in München) war ein deutscher Übersetzer, Herausgeber und bedeutender Brückenbauer zur lateinamerikanischen und insbesondere zur brasilianischen Literatur.[3] Leben: Curt Meyer-Clason absolvierte nach dem Besuch des Eberhard-Ludwigs-Gymnasium Stuttgart eine Banklehre, anschließend eine kaufmännische Ausbildung, zunächst (1929–1932) in Stuttgart, dann (1933–1936) in Bremen. Er arbeitete als kaufmännischer Angestellter in Bremen und ab 1936 als selbstständiger Kaufmann für eine nordamerikanische Baumwollfirma in Frankreich, Argentinien und Brasilien. Von 1942 bis 1944 war er in Brasilien als feindlicher Ausländer auf der Ilha Grande vor Rio de Janeiro interniert. In dieser Zeit entdeckte er die Literatur. 1955 kehrte er nach Deutschland zurück und arbeitete als freier Verlagslektor in München. Ab den Sechzigerjahren nahm seine Übersetzertätigkeit, vor allem portugiesischer, spanischer und lateinamerikanischer Autoren, immer breiteren Raum ein. Von 1969 bis 1976 war Meyer-Clason Leiter des Goethe-Instituts in Lissabon.[4] Er übernahm das Amt noch während der Diktatur des Estado Novo und erlebte die Nelkenrevolution hautnah mit.[3][5] Meyer-Clason lebte danach in München. Curt Meyer-Clason war Mitglied des Verbandes Deutscher Schriftsteller, des PEN-Zentrums der Bundesrepublik Deutschland und seit 1981 korrespondierendes Mitglied der Academia Brasileira de Letras in Rio de Janeiro. Er erhielt u. a. folgende Auszeichnungen: 1972 den Übersetzerpreis der Deutschen Akademie für Sprache und Dichtung, 1978 den Übersetzerpreis des Kulturkreises im Bundesverband der Deutschen Industrie und 1996 das Bundesverdienstkreuz 1. Klasse. Curt Meyer-Clason, der auch als Erzähler und Essayist hervorgetreten war, hat mit seinen zahlreichen Übersetzungen sowie als Herausgeber von Anthologien einen wichtigen Beitrag zur Rezeption der neueren lateinamerikanischen Literatur im deutschen Sprachraum geleistet. Er verstarb im Alter von 101 Jahren am 13. Januar 2012. . Aus: wikipedia-Curt_Meyer-Clason Sprache: de Gewicht in Gramm: 130. Bookseller Inventory # 52624
