O sonâmbulo amador by José Luiz Passos( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in Portuguese and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jurandir is a lowly employee of the Pernambuco textile industry. Days before retiring as head of security at a weaving factory in the interior of Pernambuco, he undertakes a trip to Recife to settle a labor claim. The journey proves a nightmare; for no apparent reason, he sets the company car on fire and loses control of his actions. Two months later he is interned in a psychiatric clinic in the upper city of Olinda. At the request of Dr. Enio, he begins to write down his dreams, which intertwine with past events, stories of his youth, his opinions and his routine as a clinic patient. Through the things Jurandir sees, tells and even what he attempts to hide, the reader becomes aware of the tragedies afflicting his life: an accident in his youth that left him crippled, the fragility of friendships, betrayal and crisis in his marriage, and the fatal outcome of his only son. With the help of a nurse and an intern, he tries to accept the past and live with the precariousness of the present
Machado de Assis : o romance com pessoas by José Luiz Passos( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in Portuguese and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"De onde vem a tendência para o disfarce, presente nas heroínas dos primeiros romances de Machado de Assis? Que relação existe entre a vida dupla e o senso de responsabilidade dos narradores maduros do autor? E o que dizer sobre o fascíno da tragédia de Otelo, que marcou tão fortemente a concepção de 'Dom Casmurro'? São questões centrais em torno à obra machadiana que encontram neste livro uma resposta original e digna de atenção. 'Machado de Assís, o romance com pessoas' oferece uma leitura singular do nosso autor maior, atenta à sutil transformação de su estilo reflexivo e um tanto burlesco. Sob essa ótica, somos levados a entender como personagens que misturam memória e suposição tornam-se cada vez mais complexos, desejosos de desvendar a mirada 'por baixo da pálpebra'"--Publisher's description, p. [4] of cover

Jurandir arbeider som funksjonær i en fabrikk på landsbygda i Brasil. Få dager før han skal gå av med pensjon blir han sendt av gårde for å ordne opp i en sak: En ung fabrikkansatt har blitt utsatt for en ulykke. Men reisen utvikler seg til et mareritt. Uten noen åpenbar grunn setter Jurandir fyr på firmabilen. Noen uker senere legges han inn på en psykiatrisk klinikk, hvor han etter råd fra psykiateren begynner å notere ned drømmene sine. Dette danner utgangspunktet for romanens fire notatbøker, der hovedpersonen tar et oppgjør med avgjørende hendelser fra sitt eget liv, blant annet forholdet til elskerinnen, en ulykke i barndommen og tapet av sønnen. Omtalen er utarbeidd av BS
