Read Why This World

Why This World Read & download ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Read Why This World Turbulent life Born in the nightmarish landscape of post World War I Ukraine Clarice became virtually from adolescence a person whose beauty genius and eccentricity intrigued Brazil Why This World tells how this precocious girl through long exile abroad and difficult personal struggles matured into a great writer It also asserts for the first time the deep roots in the Jewish mystical tradition. An interesting introduction to the life of Lispector at times it spends too long on details of Brazilian and other politics which makes it somewhat uneven Moser can be repetitive on CL s thought and philosophy with multi page uotations from her texts and too much storytelling rather than analysis so not a scholarly or critical assessment but it s useful to a new reader as I am to have so much background material collected together here including extracts from letters interviews and the writings of her sister friends and colleagues

Why This World

Why This World Read & download ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Read Why This World That make her the true heir to Kafka as well as the unlikely author of perhaps the greatest spiritual autobiography of the twentieth century From Chechelnik to Recife from Naples and Berne to Washington and Rio de Janeiro Why This World strips away the mythology surrounding this extraordinary figure and shows how Clarice Lispector transformed one woman's struggles into a universally resonant art. Pedant warning Moser is inordinately fond of the phrase begs the uestion which does not mean to raise or pose the uestion as he and his publisher OUP seem to think it doesBe advised that if you like to approach a novel somewhat unspoiled and haven t yet read Lispector s The Passion According to GH where it could be argued a sense of surprise is part of that story s effect it won t be enough to skip the chapter dealing with that book as he goes on to deliver one honking great spoiler repeatedly in many successive chaptersI discovered Lispector s work earlier this year and had high hopes for this biography but I kept feeling as if I had to peer around Moser to get at Lispector I found his focus on the mystical religious aspects of her writing to not uite do justice to other aspects of her writing such as the surrealism and her work in context of time place gender and fellow writersHe s on sturdier ground during the first half of the book describing her family background and her early lifeI d give Lispector 5 stars as a writer but only 3 for this bio as it s just not a very good appraisal of her work

Benjamin Moser ☆ 2 Read

Why This World Read & download ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Read Why This World That rare person who looked like Marlene Dietrich and wrote like Virginia Woolf Clarice Lispector is one of the most popular but least understood of Latin American writers Now after years of research on three continents drawing on previously unknown manuscripts and dozens of interviews Benjamin Moser demonstrates how Lispector's development as a writer was directly connected to the story of her. Penelope Fitzgerald wrote to her American editor in 1987 On the whole I think you should write biographies of those you admire and respect and novels about human beings who you think are sadly mistakenThis a remarkable biography Moser clearly admires Lispector and one learns so much about her life and work from him His tone so unlike that of Joan Schenkar which struck me as rapacious in The Talented Miss Highsmith the last biography I read is even handed and the narrative voice intelligent and insightful He alternates telling the story of her life with a discussion of the book she was writing at the time and his discussion is smart and respectful never overly in depth so that you feel you d better not continue if you ve not yet read the book describedHer masterworks Near to the Wild Heart The Passion According to GH Agua Viva The Hour of the Star Of these I ve read only the first though I ve read her 2 story collections and Cronicas all very worthwhile and also with gemsIt s a good biography that brings you back to the subject s booksI plan to read them all nowI like Moser I like how much compassion he shows Lispector even when she is behaving less than admirably I trust his view of her life his respect for her unbearable genius the thought he brings to bear on this carefully and masterfully written biography of a woman whose very modern work is as important and as beautiful as that of Kafka Joyce WoolfI wrote this review in 2009 long before I knew anything of the controversy surrounding Moser in particular accusations of plagiarism by Brazilian women writers who d written about Lispector andclaim their writings were used without attribution
