    Mem rias p stumas de Br s Cubas The Posthumous Memoirs of Bras Cubas Realistic trilogy 1 , Joaquim Maria Machado de AssisThe Posthumous Memoirs of Bras Cubas, is a novel by the Brazilian writer Joaquim Maria Machado de Assis Published in 1881 The novel has a unique style of short, erratic chapters shifting in tone and style Instead of the clear and logical construction of a normal nineteenth century realist novel, the novel makes use of surreal devices of metaphor, and playful narrative construction It is considered the first romance of the realist movement in Brazil The novel is narrated by the dead protagonist Br s Cubas, who tells his own life story from beyond the grave, noting his mistakes and failed romances The fact of being already deceased allows Br s Cubas to sharply criticize the Brazilian socie...

    Do not mourn the dead They know what they are doing Clarice Lispector, The Hour of the Star

    With those lines, Lispector might have introduced this novel by her countryman Told from the other side of the grave, we learn of the narrator s small successes and small failures, ultimately balanced in the totality of things Braz Cubas, the narrator, provides his autobiography, and his philosophy, with a gentle humor in a novel which anticipates the best of meta fiction, breaking with a Romantic literary tradition in South America and leaping into a Realism that feels contemporary.

    Come, my great lecher, the voluptuousness of extinction awaits you

    Braz Cubas describes his romances and political aspirations with a detachment

    The sharp and judicial eye of public opinion loses its power as soon as we enter the territory of death I do not deny that it sometimes glances this way and examines and judges us, but we dead folk are not concerned about its judgment You who still live, believe me, there is nothing in the world so monstrously vast as our indifference He constantly cajoles and engages the reader Tis good to be sad and say nothing When I read these words of Shakespeare, I felt within me an echo, a delicious echo I remember sitting under a tamarind tree, with the poet s book open in my hands and my spirit as crestfallen as a sick chicken I pressed my silent grief to my breast ...

    this book is written with apathy, with the apathy of a man now freed of the brevity of the century, a supinely philosophical work, of an unequal philosophy, now austere, now playful, something that neither builds nor destroys, neither inflames nor cools, and, yet, it is than a pastime and less than an apostolate.My Goodreads morning started on an emotional note today I logged in and found a book recommendation by Ali, friendly comments from Dolors and Dustin, the surprised mention of my name in Manny s review and lovely messages in the inbox What could I have asked for The update feed however, presented a different and grim story altogether A chilling reminder about the unfavorable direction this site is heading towards A site which is of, by and for the readers Good readers, Great readers, readers without whose recommendations and reviews, I wouldn t be the reader, I m today Emotions surged up when I started imagining the what ifs scenarios and when you dedicate a huge chunk of your time to a virtual world, the happenings in that world whether positive or negative, affects you in incommensurable proportions It s affecting me too and I would like to extend my heartiest thanks to each and everyone who are raising their voice in protest and hope that whatever happens the good reader in you will persevere and find...

    The reader, like his fellows, doubtless prefers action to reflection, and doubtless he is wholly in the right So we shall get to it However, I must advise that this book is written leisurely, with the leisureliness of a man no longer troubled by the flight of time that is a work supinely philosophical, but of a philosophy wanting in uniformity, now austere, now playful, a thing that neither edifies nor destroys, neither inflames nor chills, and that is at once of a pastime and less than a preachment The I read, the I come to understand that the trait I admire most in authors is not so much a matter of elegant prose, complex plots, characters that leap off the pages and make their home in your heads when the last page has been turned and the story has ended Those are all very entertaining in their own right, but clever is as clever does, and rarely provokes long lasting admiration in my mind What I prefer is a simple matter of trust, belief, faith even if that is the direction your theological tendencies swing Faith of the author in themselves, but importantly, enough faith in their audience to lead them without expounding, carry them along in the pages without tending to their every need and pandering to their every expectation.Some would disagree with me on that point In fact, many would, all those folks who dislike books for trying too hard and being too smart Those who feel that the author did not adhere to the formula enough to guarantee for...

    I wrote it with a playful pen and melancholy ink and it isn t hard to foresee what can come out of that marriage I might add that serious people will find some semblance of a normal novel, while frivolous people won t find their usual one here There it stands, deprived of the esteem of the serious and the love of the frivolous, the two main pillars of opinion Although The Posthumous Memoirs of Br s Cubas are written in a very frolicsome manner the book is abundant in precise and deep observations of human nature So the novel may even be considered as an earthy parable of existence I had a passion for ballyhoo, the limelight, fireworks More modest people will censure me perhaps for this defect I m confident, however, that clever people will recognize this talent of mine So my idea had two faces, like a medal, one turned toward the public and the other toward me On one side philanthropy and profit, on the other a thirst for fame The narration goes as easy and sparkling as a flute o...
