Lauching the celebrations of the centenary of the birth of Clarice Lispector!

CLARICE LISPECTOR| LAÇOS DE FAMÍLIA

Clarice Lispector’s superlative capacity to pin psychological minutiae of the mundane by converting them into poetical-philosophical meditations on the innermost nooks of the soul and mind of her characters: riveting and timeless!

Bonds of affection and coercion simultaneously flaring up in married life and familial relationships!

Expect the unexpected: links between zoos in São Cristóvão, Rio de Janeiro and human zoos with a Pygmy woman, people watching and ruminations on an elderly gentleman savouring his dinner, animal allegories from the hen to buffalo (bulls, Minotaur) from primordial human awareness to mythical and literary swathes of all times!

How does the struggle with love, wrath and fear permeate human life from childhood to old age?

Our book club has read and discussed Clarice Lispector since February 2015:
The Passion According to G.H. in 2015, The Hour of the Star in 2016, The Apple in the Dark in 2017, The Chandelier in 2018, Near to the Wild Heart in 2019 – visit our website to learn about Clarice Lispector’s oeuvre and download the posts  http://londres.itamaraty.gov.br/en-us/book_club.xml
