Esau and Jacob by Machado de Assis( )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Esau and Jacob is the last of Machado de Assis's four great novels. At one level it is the story of twin brothers in love with the same woman and her inability to choose between them. At another level, it is the story of Brazil itself, caught between the traditional and the modern, and between the monarchical and republican ideals. Instead of a heroic biblical fable, Machado de Assis gives us a story of the petty squabbles, conflicting ambitions, doubts, and insecurities that are part of the human condition
The city in Brazilian literature by Elizabeth Lowe( Book )

11 editions published between 1981 and 1982 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rebellion in the backlands by Euclides da Cunha( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written by a former army lieutenant, civil engineer, and journalist, Backlands is Euclides da Cunha's vivid and poignant portrayal of Brazil's infamous War of Canudos. The deadliest civil war in Brazilian history, the conflict during the 1890s was between the government and the village of Canudos in the northeastern state of Bahia, which had been settled by 30,000 followers of the religious zealot Antonio Conselheiro. Far from just an objective retelling, da Cunha's story shows both the significance of this event and the complexities of Brazilian society. -- Back cover
The lady of solitude : stories by Paula Parisot( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Lady of Solitude projects a fresh and daring new voice on to the Brazilian literary scene. These transgressive and highly charged erotic stories are all written from a woman's point of view and they offer an unexpected perspective on the world, sex and desire in a changing Brazilian and global context. That is not to say that all of Parisot's characters are strong, emancipated and resolute: they just live in a world where relationships of all kinds have changed. Avowedly a disciple of the famous detective writer Rubem Fonseca, Paula Parisot adds a new and sinister twist to crimes of passion in the big city. Some of the settings are familiar to Fonseca fans: high society salons, favelas, back alleys, and hotels in European capitals. Alternating the register from interior monologue to letters and omniscient narration, Parisot brings to the surface intimate moments as well as exact instants when certain social conventions change, move on or die."--

Futebol : urban euphoria in Brazil by Leonardo Finotti( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En Brasil el futbol es más que un deporte. Es esperanza de un futuro mejor, una distracción de la monotonía del día a día, un creador de identidad y comunidad, algo con sentido. Si no tienen un balón, la gente da patadas a frutas o latas; cuando no hay campo se lo inventan. El futbol marca el alma de los brasileños, así como la imagen de la ciudad y el paisaje. Cualquier trozo de terreno que está más o menos plano y no está ocupado o construido se convierte en un campo de futbol. Aunque falten espacios de reunión, parques o centros urbanos, siempre hay un "campo de pelada". En este volumen Ed Viggiani y Leonardo Finotti, dos fotógrafos brasileños, Alfonso Celso García Reis, un famoso exjugador de futbol y Luis Antonio Jorge, un arquitecto y urbanista, buscan y encuentran futbol en lugares donde uno no esperaría encontrarlo
