Item Description: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: Portuguese . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.O presente livro busca por meio desta edicao da obra de dominio publico O Alienista, de 1882, comprovar a atualidade visionaria de Machado de Assis (1839-1908). O escritor, criador da Academia Brasileira de Letras e bruxo do Cosme Velho segundo Carlos Drummond de Andrade, parecia prever os caminhos e descaminhos do instituto da delacao premiada, instrumento largamente usado para dar corpo a Operacao Lava-Jato no Brasil do seculo 21. O Alienista, alem dessa potente carga de permanencia, inaugura o realismo na literatura brasileira ao colocar em cena Dr. Simao Bacamarte, um abnegado medico que, na ansia de extirpar o mal que nos ronda, acaba por encarcerar na sua Casa Verde, criada para cuidar de loucos na fluminense Itaguai, quase toda a populacao de uma cidade. A visao agucada desse bruxo que residia na carioca Rua do Cosme Velho, numero 18, e puro deleite para os que gostam de ler e o fato de ter relatado o capitalismo em sua periferia, ainda que agregado ao poder, como e destacado no prefacio dessa obra, um belo estudo da transicao entre Imperio e Republica onde so a realidade do andar debaixo parece inexoravelmente predestinada a se perpetuar miseravel, em todos os sentidos e no correr dos seculos ainda que alguns lideres como Getulio Vargas e Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva tenham se empenhado, com acoes e atos para reduzir o fosso que separa o andar de cima do andar debaixo. Ambos, por seus atos, vitimas da critica mordaz, muitas vezes infundada das torpes elites brasileiras e de seus provincianos meios de comunicacao como e destacado no prefacio desta importante obra da lingua portuguesa.

Item Description: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 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.

Item 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 (19291932) in Stuttgart, dann (19331936) 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. .

Item 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. Its 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 towns 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 Brazils 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 worlds great divas, and she draws into her world and into her fantasy the towns 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 everybodys secrets. CAETANAS SWEET SONG is powerfully erotic and brilliantly composed-and resounds with the themes and passions of Latin Americas 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. Piñons 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

Item Description: Volk und Welt, Berlin, 1962. Leinen. 21x13 cm. 1962/64/69/67/72. 490/305/386/361/396/360. Original-Leinen mit/ohne Original-Schutzumschlag, mit/ohne Lesebändchen. Sehr gut erhaltenes Exemplar mit leichten Gebrauchsspuren am Schutzumschlag. 3. Jubiaba; 4. Kakao; 5. Hirten der Nacht; 6. Werkstatt der Wunder; Jorge Amado wurde 1912 als Sohn eines Kakaoplantagenbesitzers im brasilianischen Bundesstaat Bahia geboren und wuchs in der Hafenstadt Ilhéus auf. Bezüglich des Geburtsortes von Jorge Amado herrscht Uneinigkeit. Manche Biografen behaupten, sein Geburtsort sei die Fazenda Auricídia gewesen, welche zum damaligen Zeitpunkt zu Ilhéus gehörte. Diese Fazenda habe jedoch später zu Itajuípe gehört. Was jedoch sicher zu sein scheint, ist, dass die Geburt in Ferradas registriert wurde, einem Dorf in der Nähe von Itabuna. Amado besuchte eine Jesuitenschule und arbeitete mit dreizehn Jahren als Hilfsarbeiter auf Plantagen. Bereits im Alter von zwölf Jahren veröffentlichte er eine Kurzgeschichte und mit fünfzehn Jahren schrieb er schon für eine Zeitung. Als Journalist und Schriftsteller setzte er sich für die Armen und Unterdrückten ein. Amado wurde wegen seiner politischen Überzeugungen inhaftiert und lebte von 1937 bis 1942 in Argentinien und Uruguay im Exil. 1945 wurde er Abgeordneter der Nationalversammlung für die kommunistische Partei (PCB) und arbeitete an der neuen brasilianischen Verfassung mit. Nach 1948 ging er erneut nach Europa ins Exil und hielt sich von 1948 bis 1950 in Paris und von 1951 bis 1952 in Prag auf. In Paris nannte man ihn "den brasilianischen Victor Hugo", weil er bescheiden inkognito seine Baguettes kaufte, ohne sich zu erkennen zu geben.[1] Nach langen Reisen kehrte er nach Brasilien zurück. Das bekannteste Werk Amados ist der Roman Gabriela wie Zimt und Nelken. Sein wichtigster Übersetzer war Curt Meyer-Clason.[1] Fast alle Werke Amados spielen im Nordosten Brasiliens, überwiegend in und um Bahia. Seine Werke schildern das Leben und Überleben einfacher Leute, häufig im Milieu der Halbwelt angesiedelt. Trotz der materiellen Probleme seiner Protagonisten strotzen die meisten seiner Bücher vor Vitalität und Lebenslust. Schauplätze und Themen, die den Handlungen einen Rahmen geben, sind häufig Bordelle, der Karneval und der afro-brasilianische Kult. Viele Werke Amados wurden verfilmt. Die Verfilmung von Dona Flor und ihre zwei Ehemänner war einer der erfolgreichsten brasilianischen Filme überhaupt und Grundlage für ein Musical und eine Fernsehserie. Amado war wiederholt Kandidat für den Literaturnobelpreis. Zu seinen Auszeichnungen gehört die Wahl 1961 zum Mitglied der Academia Brasileira de Letras (ABL), Stuhl Nr. 23. 1969 wurde er mit dem Prêmio Juca Pato ausgezeichnet, 1994 erhielt er den hochdotierten Prémio Camões. Jorge Amado starb kurz vor Erreichen seines 89. Geburtstages am 6. August 2001 in Salvador an Herzinfarkt.[1] Auf seinen Wunsch hin wurde er eingeäschert und die Asche wurde am Fuße eines Mangobaumes im Garten seines Hauses in der Rua Alagoinhas verstreut.[2] 1986 wurde die Fundação Casa de Jorge Amado gegründet und am 7. März 1987 eingeweiht. Sie befindet sich heute in Pelourinho ?(Casa), der Oberstadt von Salvador da Bahia.
