Book Summary: Partindo de uma discussão que consiste em apontar, ainda que de forma breve, uma evolução teórico-referencial das fases da crítica do Grande Sertão: Veredas, este livro procura identificar, no conjunto das imagens veiculadas pelo romance, o que é (re)produzido no texto sobre a mulher Diadorim, a personagem tomada para apreciação neste estudo como elemento da poética de Rosa. Em Ave Diadorim – imagética da mulher em Grande Sertão: Veredas o interesse recai sobre a poesia que de Diadorim emana, por intermédio do que o narrador Riobaldo vê. Nesse aspecto, o livro aponta que se estabelece no romance rosiano, para as representações sobre a mulher, um laboratório de criação que busca dialogar com os gêneros mais tradicionais do saber literário, como o épico e o lírico. Assim, por associação, é do poema de narrativa épica que se aproxima Diadorim quando cotejada pela ótica da donzela-guerreira; assim como se aproxima do modo de produção lírica, a arte de Rosa, quando na concepção da personagem poetizada pela insistência semântica das aves, com adequação bastante significativa de representação via metáforas (símbolos?) no romance. É por deleite, mas também por motivação pela descoberta da possibilidade amorosa entre os parceiros de jagunçagem - embora esse conhecimento lhe chegue tardio - que o narrador se faz ainda mais poeta da idealização. Deita sobre a heroína um olhar lírico-amoroso que reverbera em tudo que busca descrever: pássaros e paisagens do Grande Sertão. Cabe à jovem, no romance, constituir mediação dessa subjetividade, pois com ela, e somente ela, Riobaldo aprendera a apreciar as "belimbelezas" dos Gerais. Quando vista assim, em perspectiva mais amorosa, Diadorim é andorinha pelo sertão. É canto, é poesia, é ave em arribação. Relacionada ao épico, a Diadorim donzela-guerreira reúne em torno dela as contradições de uma representação, a gravitar entre a insurgência e um modelo de repetição. No que essa figuração em Grande Sertão: Veredas aparece reforçando valores da tradição romântica, ou está em conflito de representação da feminilidade da heroína, merece apreciação. No final da narrativa, o(a) leitor(a) perceberá que não é a donzela que se nega, pelo travestimento da moça na obra, mas a guerreira mesma, que nela há, e que a cultura androcêntrica teima em não admitir.

Book Summary: In this first book-length study to compare the "new novels" of both Spanish America and Brazil, the authors deftly examine the differing perceptions of ambiguity as they apply to questions of gender and the participation of females and males in the establishment of Latin American narrative models. Their daring thesis: the Brazilian new novel developed a more radical form than its better-known Spanish-speaking cousin because it had a significantly different approach to the crucial issues of ambiguity and gender and because so many of its major practitioners were women. As a wise strategy for assessing the canonical new novels from Latin America, the coupling of ambiguity and gender enables Payne and Fitz to discuss how borders--literary, generic, and cultural--are maintained, challenged, or crossed. Their conclusions illuminate the contributions of the new novel in terms of experimental structures and narrative techniques as well as the significant roles of voice, theme, and language. Using Jungian theory and a poststructural optic, the authors also demonstrate how the Latin American new novel faces such universal subjects as myth, time, truth, and reality. Perhaps the most original aspect of their study lies in its analysis of Brazil's strong female tradition. Here, issues such as alternative visions, contrasexuality, self-consciousness, and ontological speculation gain new meaning for the future of the novel in Latin America. With its comparative approach and its many bilingual quotations, Ambiguity and Gender in the New Novel of Brazil and Spanish America offers an engaging picture of the marked differences between the literary traditions of Portuguese-speaking and Spanish-speaking America and, thus, new insights into the distinctive mindsets of these linguistic cultures.

Bandit Narratives in Latin America

Book Summary: Bandits seem ubiquitous in Latin American culture. Even contemporary actors of violence are framed by narratives that harken back to old images of the rural bandit, either to legitimize or delegitimize violence, or to intervene in larger conflicts within or between nation-states. However, the bandit escapes a straightforward definition, since the same label can apply to the leader of thousands of soldiers (as in the case of Villa) or to the humble highwayman eking out a meager living by waylaying travelers at machete point. Dabove presents the reader not with a definition of the bandit, but with a series of case studies showing how the bandit trope was used in fictional and non-fictional narratives by writers and political leaders, from the Mexican Revolution to the present. By examining cases from Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Peru, and Venezuela, from Pancho Villa’s autobiography to Hugo Chávez’s appropriation of his “outlaw” grandfather, Dabove reveals how bandits function as a symbol to expose the dilemmas or aspirations of cultural and political practices, including literature as a social practice and as an ethical experience.

Book Summary: Spring is here, and the second edition of Krowd Review is is dedicated to hummingbirds and other exotic fauna from the Brazilian lowlands, as lyrically reflected in the wildly flowered, exquisite prose of one of the most important Brazilian contributors to world literature, João Guimarães Rosa, beautifully analyzed by Bernardo Marçolla and translated by our editor Noga Sklar. Moreover, KBR's senior advisor Alan Sklar once said that “art has a random element that comes from the unintended, the collective unconscious. It is magic, it is the universe talking through you.” Therefore, not by coincidence, as I was working with this special edition I was not surprised to realize that the Chinese character for “spring” is also the one for “life, love and lust.” Each story in Krowd Review #2 – The Spring Edition is a wild journey in its own particular way. What they have in common is the ambition to take you along. Welcome aboard! Join the in-Krowd.

Book Summary: In contemporary societies privatization has long ceased to be just an economic concept; rather, it must increasingly be made to refer to the ongoing shrinking of the public space under the impact of the representation of individual lives and images, which cuts across all discourses, genres and media to become one of the primary means of production of culture. This volume is intended to cover such an historical, social and intellectual ground, where self-representation comes to the fore. Targeting mostly an academic readership but certainly also of interest to the general educated public, it collects a wide range of essays dealing with diverse modes of life writing and portraying from a variety of perspectives and focusing on different historical periods and media. It thus offers itself as a major contribution to a better understanding of the world we live in: its past legacy and present configuration.ContentsIntroduction: Signposts of the Self in Modernity Part I.

Book Summary: This book offers the reader a critical and interdisciplinary introduction to Brazilian history. Combining a didactic approach with insightful historical analysis, it discusses the main political, cultural, and social developments taking place in the Latin American country from 1500 to 2010. The historical narrative leads the reader step by step and in chronological succession to a clear understanding of the country’s three main historical periods: the Colonial Period (1500-1822), the Empire (1822-1889), and the Republic (1889-present). Each phase is treated separately and subdivided according to the political developments and successive regional forces that controlled the nation’s territory throughout the centuries. At the end of each section, an individual chapter discusses the foremost cultural and artistic developments of the period, engaging perspectives on literature, music, and the visual arts, including cinema. Through its multifaceted approach, the book explores economic history, foreign policy, education and social history, as well as literary and artistic history to reveal the multiethnic and culturally diversified nature of Brazil in all its fullness.

Book Summary: The modern metropolis has been called 'the symbol of our times', and life in it epitomizes, for many, modernity itself. But what to make of inherited ideas of modernity when faced with life in Mexico City and São Paulo, two of the largest metropolises in the world? Is their fractured reality, their brutal social contrasts, and the ever-escalating violence faced by their citizens just an intensification of what Engels described in the first in-depth analysis of an industrial metropolis, nineteenth century Manchester? Or have post-industrial and neo-globalized economies given rise to new forms of urban existence in the so-called developing world? Life in the Megalopolis: Mexico City and São Paulo investigates how such questions are explored in cultural productions from these two Latin American megalopolises, the focus being on literature, film popular music, and visual arts. This book combines close readings of works with a constant reference to theoretical, anthropological and social studies of these two cities, and builds on received definitions of the concept megalopolis Life in the Megalopolis is the first book to combine urban-studies theories (particularly Lefebvre, Harvey, and de Certeau) with Benjaminian cultural analyses, and theoretical discussions with close-readings of recent cultural works in various media. It is also the first book to compare Mexico City and São Paulo.

Book Summary: “Saga de beija-flor”, uma paráfrase ao próprio Guimarães Rosa, nomeia, com propriedade ímpar, o livro de Bernardo Andrade Marçolla, resultado de sua pesquisa de doutorado produzida na tese “A porosidade poética de Riobaldo, o cerzidor: ritmo, transcendência e experiência estética em Grande sertão: veredas”, com que logrou o Prêmio Capes de Teses 2007, melhor tese da Área de Letras no país. Retextualizada em livro, a pesquisa acurada do autor, cuja engenhosidade permite a leitura do texto rosiano numa clave holística, sem perder de vista a análise cerrada e sensível da estética do grande escritor, ganha ainda mais porque se reveste de leveza, para ser lida tanto por leitores especializados como por leitores diletantes (Márcia Marques de Morais). No apêndice, nessa mesma esteira, Marçolla analisa a presença do próprio Rosa em "Tutaméia, terceiras estórias". O livro contém, entre outras preciosidades, uma mensagem manuscrita de Manuel de Barros festejando o autor. Um estudo imperdível para os amantes dos volteios e mistérios do jogo literário.

Book Summary: Ao prosseguir suas análises sobre o escritor mineiro Guimarães Rosa, o crítico Luiz Roncari se debruça neste livro sobre a "parte negra" do romance Grande sertão: veredas. A investigação sensível das agruras de Riobaldo em sua constituição de sujeito, do despreparo para ser chefe à ação integradora, mediada pela relação ambígua com o poder, é palmilhada com vagar pelo autor, deslindando os redemunhos frasais apenas para recompô-los sob nova luz, direcionada para o ato interpretativo.A atenção aos meneios da pulsão formal, na transitividade profusa entre epopeia e romance, cifra destinos e modos de contar urdidos por uma voz narrativa que, oscilando entre o parecer das ações reportadas e o ser da intimidade que se confessa, compõe a híbrida figura de um "guerreiro penseroso", cujo anseio central, ladeado pelas lutas e amores, é o da "superação de si".

Book Summary: Poursuivant leur grand tour des territoires baroques commencé avec Le Banquet des anges (Plon, 1984) et le Radeau de la Gorgone (Grasset, 1988), les auteurs ont abordé au Portugal. L’art baroque y est né à l’époque des grandes découvertes, comme reflet des expéditions coloniales. Puis au Brésil, où la découverte de l’or, vers 1700, provoqua une floraison de villes et d’églises, de statues et de peintures, qui comptent parmi les plus hautes créations baroques dans le monde. Mais l’Or des tropiques, ce n’est pas seulement un parcours à travers les œuvres d’art, c’est aussi le compte rendu des aventures quotidiennes inséparables d’un voyage au Brésil. Pittoresque des marchés, beauté exceptionnelle des garçons et des filles, visite à une favela de Rio, expériences directes de la violence, rencontres d’écrivains et de journalistes, portrait de Jorge Amado en ses lieux, sauvagerie des pistes rouges dans la savane, initiation aux rites afro-brésiliens du candomblé, tous les aspects de cet immense et fascinant pays sont évoqués, avec l’émotion et l’enthousiasme que suscitent la vitalité et la gaieté d’un peuple unique par son courage à affronter une réalité économique et sociale difficile. Ce livre s’inscrit dans la lignée des récits de voyages o^ù Dominique Fernandez et Ferrante Ferranti ont entrepris d’explorer, après l’Italie, tous les pays de tradition méditerranéenne et latine.

Book Summary: A obra de Guimarães Rosa tem sido alvo de intensa investigação há pelo menos cinco décadas no Brasil, trabalho crítico que, de alguma forma, definiu alguns vetores básicos da crítica brasileira. De maneira geral Rosa foi sempre encarado como um escritor extraordinário e que devia ser tratado em seus próprios termos. Este livro, no entanto, tem como objetivo trazer Grande sertão: veredas para o chão da história e, com isso, discutir de que maneira a obra rosiana se abre para a modernidade, sendo profundamente afetada pelo moderno na política, no direito e na ética. Trata-se também de um diálogo com a própria crítica, sobretudo no tocante à questão arcaico versus moderno ao qual se tenta construir uma nova visada.

Book Summary: Analyzes the diverse roles and pervasive presence of disability in Latin American literature and film. Libre Acceso stages an innovative encounter between disciplines that have remained quite separate: Latin American literary, film, and cultural studies and disability studies. It offers a much-needed framework to engage the representation, construction, embodiment, and contestation of human differences, and provides tools for the urgent resignification of a robust and diverse Latin American literary and filmic tradition. The contributors discuss such topics as impairment, trauma, illness and the body, performance, queer theory, subaltern studies, and human rights, while analyzing literature and film from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, and Peru. They explore these issues through the work of canonical figures Jorge Luis Borges, Gabriel García Márquez, João Guimarães Rosa, and others, as well as less well-known figures, including Mario Bellatin and Miriam Alves.
