Item Description: University of Chicago, Chicago, 1944. Cloth. Book Condition: Fine in Very Good DJ. Second printing. Translated by Samuel Putnam from the Portuguese Os Sertões. This epic tale of the Canudos Rebellion in northeastern Brazil (and its brutal suppression), originally published in 1902 -- and a touchstone of Brazilian literature. It's a sprawling book, part military history, part meditation on the Brazilian national character and a hallucinatory portrait of Antonio Conselheiro, the charismatic leader of the 1893-1897 rebellion. Published in Portuguese as Os Sertoes (more literally the arid region). Da Cunha (1866-1909) was a journalist covering the war. Bookseller Inventory # 1834

Item Description: Grin Verlag Mrz 2008, 2008. Taschenbuch. Book Condition: Neu. 210x148x9 mm. This item is printed on demand - Print on Demand Titel. - Magisterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Romanistik - Lateinamerikanische Sprachen, Literatur, Landeskunde, Note: 1,0, Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg (Romanisches Seminar), 106 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Magisterarbeit untersucht zwei heterogene Werke der lateinamerikanischen Literatur, Os sertões (1902) von Euclides da Cunha aus Brasilien und La guerra del fin del mundo (1981) von Mario Vargas Llosa aus Peru. Beide reflektieren dasselbe historische Ereignis, den Canudos-Krieg im Nordosten Brasiliens (1897, Kap. 1), differieren aber in ihrer Gattung. Ziel der Arbeit ist es, die beiden Werke im Hinblick auf die unterschiedliche Gewichtung von Historiographie und Fiktion zu untersuchen.Kap. 2 diskutiert die Frage nach der Gattung der Werke, um die unterschiedliche Aufbereitung der historischen Fakten herauszuarbeiten. Os sertões vermischt wissenschaftlichen, historiographischen und literarischen Diskurs. La guerra hingegen ordnet sich in die Subgattung des historischen Romans bzw. der nueva novela histórica ein.Kap. 3 untersucht die ideologischen und literaturtheoretischen Prämissen, denen die Werke verpflichtet sind. Da Cunha orientiert sich wissenschaftlich am Positivismus und Sozialdarwinismus. Vargas Llosa dagegen bezeichnet in seiner Romantheorie den Schriftsteller als Gottesmörder , der fortwährend gegen die Wirklichkeit rebellier[t] und der den Wahrheitsgehalt des Dargestellten nicht wie Da Cunha an seiner Nähe zur Realität , sondern am Gelingen der literarischen Persuasionsstrategien misst.Kap. 4 beschäftigt sich mit darstellungsästhetischen Aspekten, wobei der Erzählsituation und der Sprache in beiden Werken besondere Aufmerksamkeit zukommt.Kap. 5 befasst sich mit der Funktion der Personenkonstellation und der Charakterisierung einzelner Figuren, wodurch die ideologische Positionierung von Os sertões (als Hypotext) und La guerra (als Hypertext) manifest wird. Euclides da Cunhas Wissenschaftsverständnis bringt dabei andere Wertungen und Einschätzungen zu Tage, als der Roman von Vargas Llosa. So stellt Da Cunha die sertanejos aufgrund ihres Mischlingscharakters als genetisch determinierte Relikte dar. Dagegen führt Vargas Llosa ökonomische und psychologische Gründe für den Canudos-Konflikt an und falsifiziert die Argumente Da Cunhas. Aus Kap. 6 geht die philosophische Dimension der divergenten Wirklichkeits-, Wahrheits- und Geschichtskonzeptionen der beiden Werke hervor. Beide Autoren wurden von einem unterschiedlichen Geschichtsverständnis geleitet. 144 pp. Deutsch. Bookseller Inventory # 9783638917926

Appears to be inscribed by the editor ("Leo"). Series: Coleção Clássicos comentados // Literatura brasileira. Romance. Guerra de canudos (1897), -- Brasil. Literatura, -- Brasil. Brazil -- History -- Canudos Campaign, 1893-1897. // "Euclides (archaic spelling Euclydes) da Cunha (January 20, 1866 – August 15, 1909) was a Brazilian journalist, sociologist and engineer. His most important work is Os Sertões (Rebellion in the Backlands), a non-fictional account of the military expeditions promoted by the Brazilian government against the rebellious village of Canudos, known as the War of Canudos. This book was a favorite of Robert Lowell, who put it above Tolstoy, the Russian writer. Jorge Luis Borges also commented on it in his short story "Three Versions of Judas". The book was translated into English by Samuel Putnam and published by the University of Chicago Press in 1944. It remains in print. Euclides da Cunha was also heavily influenced by Naturalism and its Darwinian proponents. Os Sertões characterised the coast of Brazil as a chain of civilisations while the interior was more primitively influenced. Euclides da Cunha was the basis for the character of The Journalist in Mario Vargas Llosa's The War of the End of the World. Euclides da Cunha occupied the 7th chair of the Brazilian Academy of Letters from 1903 until his death in 1909." -- Wikipedia. Bookseller Inventory # 20108

Item Description: Rio de Janeiro, Francisco Alves & Cia, and Paris: Aillaud, Alves & Cia., 1911., 1911. vii, 620 pp., (1l.), 4 folding maps, 3 plates with reproductions of photographs. 8°, blue-grey cloth, gilt letter on spine, original printed wrappers (reinforced at edges) bound in. In good condition. Ownership signature and date "1913" in black ink at upper inner corner of front wrapper recto. ---- Fourth edition; pages 615-20 have notes to the third [@sic] edition. The first edition appeared in 1902 and rapidly sold out. Cunha's masterpiece, which remains one of the major works of Brazilian literature, is based on his eyewitness accounts of the government's violent campaign to suppress the followers of the messianic Antônio Maciel in the backlands of Bahia in 1896. "On the one hand, it is ? a geographical, geological, botanical, zoological, ethnographical, folkloric, psychological and sociopolitical treatise of the region and its inhabitants ? But whether it assumes the cold, rational approach of a scentist, as it sometimes does, or takes the shape of an impassioned, critical indictment of Brazil's neglect and mistreatment of its less-privileged citizens, of the lack of professionalism of its army, and the incompetence of its press corps and government bureaucracy, the work is at all times marked by sincerity and a spirit of vigorous inquiry" (Chamberlain in @Dictionary of Brazilian Literature, p. 103). @Os Sertões had a tremendous influence: "[Cunha's] importance not only to Brazilian literature but alo to the history and evolution of Brazilian national thought, identity, and language cannot be overstated" (Chamberlain p. 105). @Os Sertões also had a direct influence on Mario Vargas Llosa's @La guerra del fin del mundo, 1981. Cunha was a native of Bahia.---- Menezes, @Dicionário literário brasileiro (1978) pp. 223-4. Monteiro Reis, @Bibliografia de Euclides da Cunha 37. On Cunha, see Bobby J. Chamberlain in @Dictionary of Brazilian Literature, ed. Stern, pp. 102-5. NUC: CSt. No early editions located in WorldCat. Bookseller Inventory # 21087
