About this Item

8°, contemporary quarter calf over marbled boards (spine faded, slight wear; three pinpoint wormholes and one slightly larger at or near front joint), flat spine gilt. Light foxing to first and last few leaves. In very good condition. 416 pp., (2 ll.). *** FIRST EDITION of this collection of 20 essays, most on literary themes. Included are long appreciations of the Brazilian writers Euclydes da Cunha and Amelia de Freitas Bevilaqua, and essays on the current state of Brazilian belles-lettres, Portuguese orthography, Allemanismo in Brazil, and the Brazilian military leader Luís Alves de Lima e Silva, Duque de Caxias (1803-1880).Romero (1851-1914), a native of Lagarto (Sergipe), was "one of the most able and productive literary historians Brazil has had" (Jong, p. 326) and also wrote extensively on sociology, ethnography and politics. Goldberg describes Romero as "one of the most picturesque figures of the nineteenth century. He was a born fighter, with all the traits of the ardent polemicist. Throughout a lifetime that was rife with self-contradiction, he fought for Brazilian independence in the literary, scientific and political fields" (p. 295).*** Ford, Whittem and Raphael, Tentative Bibliography of Brazilian Belles-Lettres p. 149.
