Item Description: Bantam Books, 1988. hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good In Dustjacket. 1st Edition. New York. 1988. Bantam Books. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 422 pages. February 1988. hardcover. 0553051741. Author photo (c) 1987 Stephen Fischer. Cover art (c) 1988 Keith Batcheller. Translated from the Portuguese by Gregory Rabassa. (original title: Tocaia Grande, 1987). keywords: Literature Translated Brazil Latin America. inventory # 9261. FROM THE PUBLISHER - At age seventy-five, Jorge Amado is Brazil’s greatest living literary institution with more than eight million copies of his books in print. Internationally acclaimed as a spinner of earthy, tropical tales, he has written twenty-one novels which have been translated into forty-six languages and published in sixty countries. Now he presents a work full of violence and courage, sex and adventure, more brilliant and more adventurous than his two most celebrated books, DONA FLOR AND HER TWO HUSBANDS and GABRIELA, CLOVE AND CINNAMON. Even by Amado’s own standards, the anticipation and excitement surrounding SHOWDOWN have made its publication a major international event. Three years in the writing, the book is his largest, most magnificent work in decades and was an instant bestseller in Brazil. SHOWDOWN is a novel of audacious scope. Its central character is Tocaia Grande, a city in the Bahian backlands of Brazil’s cacao region, the scene of four previous Amado novels. But the master is full of playful surprises. Everything in Showdown is seen from a new perspective, as dozens of individual lives develop into the collective story of a community. Tocaia Grande was born when the henchman of a cacao plantation ambushed a rival colonel vying for power at the start of this century, in a time when honor took precedence over law, and courage came before power. It was a renegade beginning, in its grittiness, violence, pettiness and feel of dirt and blood, not unlike the birth of our great American West. In this paradise of the frontier that Amado has created live wonderful characters culled from the author’s childhood-prostitutes, murderers, fugitives, migrant workers and even a flimflamming Turk. All of them are placed under the leadership of Natário da Fonseca, a gunslinger who is eventually appointed captain of the National Guard. These are the men and women Amado knows intimately, and has great faith in. He takes us into their very souls, chronicling their passions and their desires. And through their story, the story of the miraculous growth of a truly singular town is revealed. SHOWDOWN is the most daring novel in Jorge Amado’s long and distinguished career. In it he opens his heart, and leaves us with a tale that will live long in our memories. Jorge Amado de Faria (August 10, 1912 - August 6, 2001) was a Brazilian writer of the Modernist school. He was the best-known of modern Brazilian writers, his work having been translated into some 30 languages and popularized in film, notably Dona Flor and her Two Husbands (Dona Flor e Seus Dois Maridos) in 1978. His work dealt largely with the poor urban black and mulatto communities of Bahia. Amado was born in a fazenda (‘farm’) in the inland of the city of Itabuna, in the southern part of the Brazilian state of Bahia, son of João Amado de Faria and D. Eulália Leal. The farm Amado was born in was precisely located on the village of Ferradas, which though today is a district of Itabuna, at the time was administered by the town of Ilhéus. That is why he considered himself a citizen of Ilhéus. In the large cocoa plantation, Amado knew the misery and the struggles of the people working the earth, living in almost slave conditions, which were to be a theme always present in his later works (for example, the notable Terras do Sem Fim of 1944). When he was only one year old the family moved to Ilhéus, a coastal city, where he spent his childhood. He attended high school in Salvador, the capital of the state. During that period Amado began to collaborate with several magazines and took part in literary life, as one of th. Bookseller Inventory # 9261

Item Description: Corregidor. Book Condition: New. 950051589X Book DescriptionPublication Date: January 1, 2005Un buen cuento es un campo minado, se lee en uno de los relatos que componen Vereda Tropical. Y esta definicion, valida para cualquier cuento, resulta particularmente cierta en el caso de los quince aqui reunidos. Porque cada una de estas historias encierra una sorpresa y que seguramente impactara al lector de tal manera, que se convertira en uno de esos hallazgos que la literatura nos reserva cada tanto. Ademas de piezas clasicas del genero, estos textos traducidos por primera vez al castellano- configuran una vision plural, precisa y al mismo tiempo caleidoscopica de la cultura brasilena de los ultimos cien anos. Como senala Maria Antonieta Pereira en su prologo: Conocer la literatura brasilena es conocer uno de los mecanismos mas curiosos de formacion de la nacionalidad en el Brasil, pues lo que se percibe es que ambas historia y nacion- se cuestionan al mismo tiempo que se estructuran. Heredero de la ironia como estrategia narrativa, el cuento brasileno se desdobla como un discurso critico de la realidad, volviendose co-responsable por los cambios que se van procesando en el imaginario nacional.Product DetailsPaperback: 240 pagesPublisher: Corregidor (January 1, 2005)Language: SpanishISBN-10: 950051589XISBN-13: 978-9500515894Product Dimensions: 7.7 x 5.

Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket With A Few Small Tears & One Small Piece Missing From The Top Front. 434 pages. November 1991. hardcover. 0525933670. Jacket illustration by Cathleen Toekle. keywords: Literature Latin America Anthology Translated. inventory # 34868. FROM THE PUBLISHER - This splendid collection of stories by 26 Latin American authors features the new voices and celebrated masters of one of the world’s foremost literatures. Included are Jorge Luis Borges, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Rosario Ferre, Juan Carlos Onetti, Manuel Puig, Joao Ubaldo Ribeiro, and others. From the erotic comedies by Isabel Allende and Jorge Amado to the playful labyrinths of Guillermo Cabrera Infante’s London streets or Armonia Somers’ roomful of clocks. A HAMMOCK BENEATH THE MANGOES offers abundant reading pleasure for those simply curious about, or already captivated by the magic of Latin America’s fiction. Organized geographically, this innovative anthology includes a number of stories never before published in English, and captures the extraordinary variety of themes and styles embodying that peculiarly Latin American vision of the world. Also included are short biographies of the authors that place their works in context. Explores the gothic sexual ambiguities of Carlos Fuentes’ ‘The Doll Queen’, the psychological compression of Clarice Lispector’s ‘Love’, or the baroque pyrotechnics of Machado de Assis and Adofo Bioy Casares. Discover the parodically ‘hard-boiled’ detective fiction of Ana Lydia Vega and some decidedly ‘soft-boiled’ criminals in Rubem Fonseca’s ‘Lonelyhearts’. From Horacio Quiroga’s ‘The Dead Man’, who is disturbingly alive, to the quintessential feat of magical realism found in Alejo Carpentier’s ‘Journey Back to the Source’. A HAMMOCK BENEATH THE MANGOES reveals the virtuosity of Latin American literature at it finest, and provides an illuminating journey into dreamlike and unexpected worlds. CONTENTS/ Introduction; 1.

Item Description: Visor-Libros. soft. Book Condition: New. João Cabral de Melo Neto (Recife, Brasil, 1920) es uno de los poetas más sobresalientes de la poesía contemporánea en portugés, imprescindible en el origen y la evolución de la modernidad que daría lugar a la >. Tan dificil como económico constructor de poemas, ha de ir unido a las figuras principales de Carlos Drummond de Andrade y Murilo Mendes, poetas principales de la generación del 45 brasileña, voluntariamente alejados del pintoresquismo precedente y caracterizados por la preponderancia como objeto-problema esencial de su poesía. La estancia sucesiva y variante del poeta en ciudades españolas, ocupando cargos diplomáticos, caracteriza temáticamente la obra de Cabral, y ha dejado buena huella entrew algunos poetas españoles (especialmente los que al primer tiro son tachados de > ). La educación por la piedra (1966) es uno de los libros más significativos, quizás el más maduro desde su iniciación surrealista, en el que más sobresalen sus elemntos esenciales: forma, razón, objeto. Pablo de Barco (Burgos, 1943), profesor de Literatura de la Universidad de Sevilla, ha realizado estudios de leteratura comparada hispano-brasileña en la USP (São Paulo, Brasil). Es autor de los libros de poesía: Piedra quejida, Versounverso, 14 x 14 sonetos, Del Burgos desungido ; del ensayo Cartas a los Machados y de la edición de Antonio Machado Juan de Mairena y Apuntes inéditos : traductor de Fernando Pessoa y los brasileños Rubem Fonseca y Darcy Ribeiro, prepara en la actualidad antologías de los poetas Carlos Drummond de Andrade y Murilo Mendes.

Item Description: Createspace, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English,Portuguese Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Diminutivo de figueira, Figueiro quer dizer figueirinha - em latim do seculo XII escrevia-se figairola -, vocabulo de que provira figueirol e Figueiro. As figueiras da regiao e os seus excelentes vinhos explicam o toponimo, segundo diversos autores, entre os quais Pinheiro Leal. Sem querer dizer que nesta regiao lindissima nao ha vinho, que por sinal e trepador e tem fama como o pao-de-lo, que e delicioso, Antonio Montes acha que a povoacao se deveria denominar Figueiro das Cores, como, alias, sublinha, ja lhe ouviu chamar, e que se ajustaria melhor ao panorama que temos pela frente. Esta excelente descricao das origens do nome Figueiro dos Vinhos, que consta no livro Dicionario do nome das terras, de Joao Fonseca, e bem ilustrativa da beleza da nossa terra e das suas cores maravilhosas.
