Fler böcker av Benjamin Moser

Auteur: Benjamin Moser. Samenvatting "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 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 that make her the true heir to Kafka as well as the unlikely author of "perhaps the greatest spiritual autobiography of the twentieth century.

Toon meer Toon minder. Recensie s Lively, ardent and intellectually rigorous. Moser carefully unwraps the very raw, intimate character behind her very introspective books An excellent feat of portraiture --Los Angeles Times This is rich biographical material that gets only richer as Mr. Moser, a translator and a book critic for Harper's Magazine, begins to unpeel the layers of her complicated life.

This well-researched biography by Moser, New Books columnist for Harper's, should send readers in search of this indescribable author. Moser's richly contextualized, uniquely insightful, and haunting biography of mystic and writer Lispector resurrects a 'penetrating genius.

To Clarice Lispector, Wherever She Might Find Me

Lispector is a great subject, and Moser is the perfect biographer for her. One of the twentieth century's most mysterious writers is finally revealed in all her vibrant colors. This book is enthralling.

Translating Clarice Lispector

She is, Moser convincingly argues, unique--in Brazilian or any other literature. However, while there have been a plethora of books, movies and TV shows about Lispector and her novels in Brazil, she has never made her mark in the United States. The biographer dives into the philosophical and theological concerns of his subject's literary output without skimping on the travails, pleasures and idiosyncrasies of her everyday life.

Although Clarice's major works have been available in English translation for many years, that cult will undoubtedly receive a boost in North America with the publication of the first biography of her in English, Benjamin Moser's superbly documented, meticulously researched Why This World. Interlaid with brilliant quotations from Lispector's fiction, letters, and interviews, the book offers plenty of evidence of her passionate and sometimes desperate spiritual search.

As Clarice would have it, Moser learns from her, apprentices under her. While the level of research carried out is impressive, there is still a slight tentativeness about the biography that makes it more endearing. In these little uncertainties, Moser's love for Lispector emerges, and the passion for certain knowledge of his idol--paix o for Clarice--shines through. Benjamin Moser's beautifully written, sensitive, and impeccably researched biography unlocks the secret of the so-called Sphinx of Rio de Janeiro, bringing this complex, mysterious individual into precise focus, albeit without unsettling Lispector's allegiance to the unknowable.

He does this by citing her own texts, letters, other scholarly work and what few interviews there are of her. Moser uses letter written to and from Lispector, Lispector's own sisters, Elisa Lispector 's autobiography, interviews with Lispector and Lispector's own writings [1].

Critical reception for Why This World was largely positive. Fitz remarked on the book's handling of Lispector's texts that were lesser known outside of Brazil, criticizing it on how the texts were interpreted [2].
