Why This World

Why This World Free download Í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Benjamin Moser È 5 Free download 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. I enjoyed this overview of Clarice Lispector and learning some small facts about her life and personality helped immensely with being able to read her works Why this World fell short of a four star for me because I thought that Moser dedicated too much page space to his own analysis of her works and imposed his own judgements on the facts of her life He was present on every page often overshadowing and imposing on Clarice I would have liked to see of the content from letters and diaries of friends discussing her as contemporaries and something from her own personal papers that are not part of her published bibliography Instead there were incredibly long passages uoted directly from her short stories and novels followed by long passages of Moser s analysis taking almost half of the page count Although I know this sort of analysis is common in literary biography I wanted to know about Clarice Lispector and not about what Benjamin Moser thinks of Clarice Lispector s works I thought he treated her metaphysical learning cursorily and substituted the background the reader needed on Spinosa and Cabbalism with long passages of analysis of Brazilian politics and political leaders that had only roundabout connection to Clarice she met them a few times or her husband knew them Her children who were incredibly important to her and her understanding of herself by her own admission many times feature almost not at all we are told that Pedro s illness affected her from a young age and the Paulo married but beyond that nothing else of their lives Maury appears for only a few pages Her sisters and the female friends who made up her day to day life each have perhaps a page It was incredibly disappointing I wanted to know her and the people who surrounded her and influenced her and instead I know something of the succession of Brazilian leaders in the 20th century and about how Moser reads her works and even his analysis I thought was pompous and overblown I started skipping it around the last third of the book If you like Lispector and are an English reader I do recommend persevering through this but if you have not read her works do not expect this book to inspire you to Try first with her short stories Letters to Chloe young age and the Paulo married but beyond that nothing else of their lives Maury appears for only a few pages Her sisters and the female friends who made up her day to day life each have perhaps a page It was incredibly disappointing I wanted to know her and the people who surrounded her and influenced her and instead I know something of the succession of Brazilian leaders in the 20th century and about how Moser reads her works and even his analysis I thought was pompous and overblown I started skipping it around the last third of the book If Ford County you like Lispector and are an English reader I do recommend persevering through this but if Johannes Cabal the Necromancer you have not read her works do not expect this book to inspire Academia Obscura you to Try first with her short stories

A Soul Turned Inside Out Clarice Lispector H l ne Cixous and L criture f minine The first time the Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector was interviewed following her sensational debut in 1944 with the novel Near to the Wild Heart she was asked why she writes I write because I find in it a pleasure that I don t know how to translate I m not pretentious I write for myself to hear my soul talking and singing sometimes crying She said she believed all writing in some sense was autobiographical After all Flaubert was right when he said Madame Bovary c est moi One is always at the forefront Shortly before her death she stated I write as if to save somebody s life Probably my own life A Breath of Life 1978Benjamin Moser s thorough biography of Clarice Lispector Why This World struggles and wonderfully fails to bring us closer to the writer he describes as weird mysterious and difficult an unknowable mystical genius far above and outside the common run of humanity Indeed Lispector s entire project as a woman and a writer was to remain unknown while simultaneously exposing herself I am so mysterious I don t even understand myself says Lispector in one breath in the next My mystery is that I have no mystery Her carefully constructed auto biographical conundrum dictates that the only way into Clarice Lispector is via the individual reader s esoteric engagement with her writing Moser admits to having in this manner fallen in love with her himself In a valiant attempt to describe Lispector s unknownknown uality he writesThe soul exposed in her work is the soul of a single woman but within it one finds the full range of human experience This is why Clarice Lispector has been described as just about everything a woman and a man a native and a foreigner a Jew and a Christian a child and an adult an animal and a person a lesbian and a housewife a witch and a saint Because she described so much of her intimate experience she could credibly be everything for everyone venerated by those who found in her expressive genius a mirror of their own soulsRead the rest of my review at Booksluthttpwwwbookslutcomthebombshell
