"Martin is convinced that he has murdered his wife. In a delirium of guilt and grief, he wanders through a forest until he comes across an isolated farm run by Vitoria - an indomitable spinster who is 'afraid to live', and her flighty, obsessive cousin Ermelinda, who is terrified of death. As Martin works on Vitoria's land he is both haunted and comforted by memories of his wife and son." "In the intense heat of the Brazilian summer, drought threatens both the farm and its inhabitants, and these three very different but equally domineering characters provoke each other into a realisation of their individual psychological isolation."--Jacket

Nahe dem wilden Herzen Roman by Clarice Lispector( Book )

'Ein fulminantes Debüt, frisch und wahrhaftig!' (Felix Philipp Ingold, Neue Zürcher Zeitung) 1943: Das Romandebüt einer Dreiundzwanzigjährigen ist die literarische Sensation - zum ersten Mal wagt es eine brasilianische Schriftstellerin, das komplexe Innenleben ihrer Heldin offenzulegen und die konventionellen Gesellschaftsmuster zu hinterfragen. Selbstbewusst bezieht sie sich auf Joyce und fügt der Moderne ihre ganz eigene weibliche Stimme hinzu. In 'Nahe dem wilden Herzen' konzentriert sich Clarice Lispector auf die Reflexionen ihrer Heldin Joana und dringt in die Tiefen ihrer Gefühlswelt vor. Das Lebensumfeld der jungen Frau blitzt darin nur gelegentlich auf: Da ist der frühe Tod des Vaters, die unglückliche Kindheit bei der Tante, die Einsamkeit im Internat, die am gegenseitigen Betrug scheiternde Ehe mit dem Rechtsanwalt Otávio.-

Água viva by Clarice Lispector( Book )

4 editions published in 1981 in French and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce texte ne correspond à aucun genre traditionnel. Il ressemble plutôt à une méditation, à une introspection. La narratrice est seule devant sa fenêtre et elle écrit, sans savoir où les mots la mèneront; le langage devient une sorte d'incantation. C'est une oeuvre "abstraite et kaléidoscopique"
