    Why This World (PDF) 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 scho

summary Why This World

review Why This World Ö eBook or Kindle ePUB 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

review Why This World Ö eBook or Kindle ePUB 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. 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

I am not usually a fan of biographies I think they are inevitably partial and it s very hard to know a life even if it is described completely And also I feel a certain guilt of reading someone s life on the page I find it a little vouyeristic I know that word most likely does not exist but this time I liked knowing of Clarice mostly of what was going on around her when she wrote each Novel where she lived her family her friends You can tell the author loves her and that I can relate to It s a love letter to Clarice and her life and very well written u misterio tiene Clarice 3
