February 1984. paperback. 0380848228. Cover art by D. Pacinelli. Paperback Original. Translated from the Portuguese by Dorothy Scott Loos. 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

Item Description: Createspace, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: Portuguese Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Sinopse: PREFACIO Este prefacio e importante, sobretudo para os leitores iniciantes, ja que nele eu preparo o leitor a descoberta de Labirinto Emocional, indicando-lhe os seus tracos gerais (porem sem divulgar as guinadas inesperadas da obra), e suscitar-lhe o desejo de irem em frente na leitura. Pode parecer estranho mas e verdade. O Brasil, pais com mais de cento e oitenta milhoes de habitantes, tem apenas duas mil livrarias e a maioria dos seus cidadaos nao ganha o suficiente para comprar uma cesta basica e nem mesmo uma porcao literaria. Disso surge a miseria de quem escreve, dos homens que vivem a margem da luxuria. Literalmente falando: sao poucos os alienados que vendem sua ideologia e sua crenca no tesouro poetico-filosofico para viverem embriagados com o vinho da vaidade. Eles escrevem um vasto lixo visando alimentar vermes, como tambem saciar o apetite das mentes deformadas pelo aleijo social e cultural. Se a loucura nos literatos e a mais mortifera, entao eu pergunto: por que nao ser tambem voraz? Ha os que escrevem para milhoes de rudes que fingem entender o que leem, e enquanto outros, se satisfazem em escrever para tres ou quatro leitores conscientes que nao so compreendem como tambem partilham os pensamentos que absorvem. O que estes colhem na seara da semente? Respondo: morte prematura, cegueira e suicidio da incompreensao. Vale lembra ao leitor algo muito importante sobre o assunto acima: o autor de Dom Quixote, Miguel de Cervantes, morreu na miseria depois de ser enganado por seu editor da primeira parte de sua obra singular. Eu nao tenho nenhum amigo ilustre, nao conheco nenhum imortal da Academia Brasileira de Letras, por isso, para que meu livro nao saisse incompleto, eu mesmo escrevi este mini argumento prefacial. Para tal, tive como referencia o prologo de Machado de Assis em Memorias Postumas de Bras Cubas, curto. Mas mui consciente do objetivo desta minha obra, amarrarei com as correntes da indignacao o meu espirito critico para nao cansar leitor algum. Nao tenho a pretensao de convencer o leitor de que Labirinto Emocional se trata de um novo fenomeno literario, e ate aconselho aos senhores que fujam dos ditos fenomenos, de qualquer area de atividade profissional. Labirinto Emocional e uma obra de rascunho e inacabada, talvez o meu ponto mais alto que eu poderia atingir. Nao quero falar muito do psicologico das personagens, nem tampouco entregar em bandeja de prata suas cabecas, seus defeitos e seus desvios de conduta. Eu espero, astuto leitor, que voce se identifique com alguma personagem, pois Labirinto Emocional traz personagens e situacoes comuns do cotidiano, com defeitos e virtudes nossos. Mas vale assinalar que minha intencao e revelar mais defeitos que virtudes. Os romances, nao raro, apresentam uma riqueza de detalhes descritiveis. No entanto, em Labirinto Emocional, eu nao usei deste expediente psicologico material, porque cansaria o leitor. Em Kafka e em Camus podemos verificar que a beleza das suas obras nao reside no lugar ou em uma cronologia temporal. O mundo de Proust, ao contrario, talvez por ser mais glorioso, agrega duas condutas: uma riqueza imensuravel psicologica, sobretudo na dissecacao do espirito do ciume, e uma contextualizacao historica com suas nuances materiais. Em Labirinto Emocional alem de agregar tais condutas, nao ha espacos confortaveis nem passagens paradisiacas, as alegrias sao passageiras e a morte e um tema constante.

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.

Very Good In Dustjacket. 170 pages. hardcover. 0292784015. Cover art by Enrico Bianco. Drawings by Enrico Bianco. Translated from the Portuguese by Fred P. Ellison. Originally published in Brazil under the title Memorias de Lazaro, 1952. 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. Bookseller Inventory # 3330

Item Description: University Of Texas Press, 1963. hardcover. 1st Edition. Austin. 1963. University Of Texas Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket. 178 pages. hardcover. Cover: Aldemir Martins. Translated from the Portuguese by Fred P. Ellison. Illustrated by 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
