Auszug: Paulo Coelho ( 24. August 1947 in Rio de Janeiro) ist ein brasilianischer Schriftsteller und Bestseller-Autor. Paulo Coelho wurde 1947 in eine gutbürgerliche brasilianische Familie hineingeboren, sein Vater Pedro ist Ingenieur, seine Mutter Lydia Hausfrau. Er hat eine ältere Schwester namens Sonia. Paulo Coelhos Leben war von Beginn an religiös geprägt. Als siebenjähriger Junge besuchte er die Jesuitenschule San Ignacio in Rio de Janeiro, in der er bei einem schulischen Lyrikwettbewerb einen Preis erhielt. Coelho studierte Rechtswissenschaften gegen den Wunsch seines Vaters, der ihn gerne in seinen Fußstapfen als Ingenieur gesehen hätte, unterbrach 1970 jedoch sein Studium, um als Hippie eine zweijährige Weltreise durch Südamerika, Nordafrika und Europa zu unternehmen. Coelhos anschließende Tätigkeit als Theater- und Drehbuchautor sowie sein in dieser Zeit währender Drogenkonsum wurden von seinen streng katholischen und konservativen Eltern scharf verurteilt. Sein rebellisches Aufbegehren gegen die Vorstellungen und Ziele seiner Eltern führte aufgrund der Annahme, ihr Sohn sei geistesgestört, zu insgesamt drei Einweisungen in die psychiatrische Anstalt Casa de Saúde Dr. Eiras (1966, 1967 und 1968), wo er auch mit Elektrokrampftherapie behandelt wurde. Die Erfahrung stationärer psychiatrischer Behandlung schilderte er später in seinem Roman Veronika beschließt zu sterben. Coelho war und ist politisch tätig. Gemeinsam mit dem Musiker Raul Seixas wurde Coelho 1973 Mitglied der antikapitalistischen Alternativen Gesellschaft , die Freiheit und Selbstbestimmung propagierte und in der magische Rituale praktiziert wurden. Coelho engagierte sich in dieser Zeit für eine Comicserie, genannt Kring-ha , die ebenfalls für mehr Freiheit im vom Militär regierten brasilianischen Staat eintrat. Aufgrund der möglichen Gefahr einer Oppositionsbildung verhaftete das Militärregime die beiden Männer 1974. Zwei Tage nach seiner Freilassung wurde Coelho von einer paramilitärischen Orga 52 pp. Deutsch. Bookseller Inventory # 9781158918416

From his earliest years he was fascinated with native lore as well as the Portuguese and Latin classics; both had profound effects on his writings. He is difficult to classify, and has been called both a realist and a romanticist. Certainly he was one of the most vocal adversaries of the Modernist movement, and the Modernist authors responded by excluding his works from anthologies for many years. In the Academia Brasileira de Letras, however, he was held in such esteem that he was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1933. To Machado de Assis he was "dos nossos primeiros romancistas, e geralmente falando, dos nossos primeiros escritores"; to Silvio Roméro, he was one of the sixteen best Brazilian writers, and "o mais imaginoso de todos" (both quoted in Faria, pp. 126, 128).Coelho Netto left an enormous oeuvre of over 120 volumes, including novels, plays, short stories, folktales, and political and historical essays. His works have been translated into French, English, German, Italian, Spanish, Swiss, Russian, Japanese, Danish and Esperanto.*** Menezes, @Dicionário literario brasileiro pp. 196-8.

Item Description: Lisbon, Typographia da Companhia Nacional Editora, 1900., 1900. Small folio, original printed glassine wrappers (chipped; front wrapper detached). Some fraying to edges. Signature of João Henrique Ulrich on front wrapper, with his stamp and shelf number in purple ink on the title page. (1 blank l., 1 l.), 40 pp., (2 ll., 1 blank l.). *** FIRST EDITION, and the only separate one of these poems, the author's fourth published work.Afonso Lopes Vieira (1878-1946) was Portugal's best traditional poet of the twentieth century. In 1916 he resigned his post as Redactor da Câmara dos Deputados in Lisbon in order to dedicate himself to reading and to poetry. His home, São Pedro de Moel, became a haven for artists, musicians and writers. He also travelled extensively in Europe and North Africa, and reminiscences of these travels often appear in his works.Lopes Vieira's earliest published works were written as a student at Coimbra, 1897-1900, e.g. @Para quê?, 1897, and @Náufrago, 1898. From this melancholy phase he passed into a nationalistic one, in which he publicized early Portuguese literature, aiming to "reaportuguesar Portugal tornando-o europeau." During this period he helped prepare an edition of Camões (1928) and edited Montemayor's @Diana, the @Amadis, and Rodrigues Lobo. His Portuguese translation of the @Poema do Cid was published in the periodical @Lusitânia, of which Lopes Vieira served as secretary. He also wrote essays and fiction, as well as works for children, e.g. @Animais nossos amigos, 1911 and @Canto infantil, 1912.@Provenance: João Henrique Ulrich (1880-1956), lawyer, parliamentary deputy, acadamician, publicist and administrator, was a monarchist deputy affiliated with the Regenerador party from 1907 to 1910. He held the posts of vice-governador and governador of the Banco Nacional Ultramarino, presided over the administrative council of the Companhia da Zambézia, and was administrator and president of the Conselho de Administração of the Companhia Nacional de Navegação. He also served on the boards of various other companies, such as the Companhias dos Tabacos de Portugal and the Carris de Ferro de Lisboa. In 1956 he became president of the board of directors of the Companhia das Águas de Lisboa, of which he had been administrator from 1914 to 1928. Elected a member of the Academia das Ciências de Lisboa in 1921, he rose to become president of its Classe de Letras. Holder of a law degree from Coimbra University, he wrote several books on legal matters, as well as works on agricultural credit.*** Innocêncio XXII, 22. Santos, @Exposição bibliográfica de Afonso Lopes Vieira, p. 9. See Saraiva & Lopes, @História da literatura portuguesa (17th ed., 2001), p. 961; Bell, @Portuguese Literature, p. 337: "There is a certain strength as well as a subtle music about his verse which is of good promise for the future."

Innocêncio, unsure of the date of his death, says he appears to have been still alive in 1759. According to Barbosa Machado he had studied at Coimbra, but no faculty is mentioned, nor is it stated whether or not he received a degree. He produced several pamphlets of poetry, a @Critica moral in 2 parts (1736), and a @Thalia sacra (1740) with 4 plays, the first in Portuguese, and the other 3 in Spanish. He was a member of the Academy of the Aplicados, founded in 1722. The present work appears to be his earliest separately printed publication.*** Innocêncio III, 68 (without collation).

(4 ll.), 326 [actually 328] pp., (12 ll.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this book by a Jesuit author that discusses ethical and philosophical questions regarding politics, economics, and society. These questions, treated in the abstract, are similar to precepts one might find in courtesy books of the day. The volume ends with a 400-line poem on educational reforms by the Jesuits at the University of Évora.In the main text, Pereira is concerned with ethical dilemmas. For example: Is it greater wisdom to laugh about the human condition or to cry about it? Is it better to be subject to a ruler who was elected, or who inherited his position? Is it good or bad to be ruled by a woman? Should princes aim to be feared or loved? Which is more powerful, the desire for honor or for wealth? Where do leaders most shine, in battles on land or on sea?The final seven leaves contain a 400-verse neo-Latin poem by Pereira that describes the reforms instituted by the rector of Évora's College of Arts, P. Antonio de Sousa (d. 1635). The University of Évora was established by Cardinal D. Henrique in 1559, and was soon put under the control of the Jesuits. In the 1630s, the authority of the Jesuits was challenged by the rector of the University of Évora. Sousa's reforms defended the rights and privileges of the Jesuits against those attacks. According to the @Grande enciclopédia, this poem is a major source on those reforms. Pereira (1605-1681) was in an excellent position to recognize the importance of these reforms. He entered the Jesuit order in 1620, studied humanities at Évora and philosophy at Coimbra, before returning to Évora to work on his doctorate. For twenty years he taught at Évora. Pereira was one of the most learned Jesuits of his time, and his major works were much admired. His Latin-Portuguese-Spanish dictionary, @Prosodia in vocabularum trilingue latinam lusitanum, et castellanum digesta, first published at Évora, 1634, went through many editions. @Pallas togata is one of his rarest works.*** Arouca P105.
