A hora da estrela characters á PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Free download Ë PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ê Clarice Lispector A new edition of Clarice Lispector’s final masterpiece now with a vivid introduction by Colm TóibínNarrated by the cosmopolitan Rodrigo SM this brief strange and haunting tale is the story of Macabéa one of life's unfortunates Living in the slums of Rio and eking out a poor living as a typist Macabéa loves movies Coca Colas. Who has not asked himself at some time or other am I a monster or is this what it means to be a person Clarice Lispector s The Hour of the Star is ostensibly about a young woman Macabea in Rio de Janeiro who has been crushed by poverty However the novel is even revealing of the narrator who chooses to write about her The narrator tells you why he s chosen to follow Macabea something about her habits she loves Coca Cola and wants to be like Marilyn Monroe and her occupation she is a typist but not very good one This leads you to believe the story is about Macabea However the interesting subject is the narrator himself his own position in Brazilian society as well as his speculative musings Lispector casts off authorial privilege as the narrator wonders whether Macabea knows who she is or whether he the narrator is imposing an identity on her Enjoyed this I d like to read Brazilain authors so suggestions are very welcome Even without having an interest in Brazil this is a somewhat uirky but engaging read 45 stars

As long as I have uestions and no answers I ll keep on writing Books what are they for Why do we read them For Kafka books were the axe for the frozen sea within us Carl Sagan held them as proof that humans are capable of working magic We say that particular arrangement and assortment of words create a world whose roots are hidden in the imagination of the author Fiction per se though is about things which may not exist in real world however it is very much about writing truth to understand that truth is not in what happens but in what it tells us about who we are In a sense as Neil Gaiman says fiction is lie which tells truth And what about the responsibility of an author Should he state things as they are if that the case then we would have not been reading so many great authors However isn t it so that essentially everyone is writing the same thing as Borges used to maintain Why people keep on writing then and importantly why we are reading them individually and separately George Orwell wrote that one would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand An author may have an obligation which is to not to freeze language or to pretend it is a dead thing that must be revered but to use it as a living thing that flows that borrows words that allows meanings and pronunciations to change with time Perhaps that s how the different art movements have graduated over the years and probably that s why we have seen plethora of great authors and we still witnessing it and perhaps would be seeing it in future too And probably that s how we have been privileged to come across authors such as Laszlo Krasznahorkai who write page long sentences but still they are so beautiful and pleasant to the readers eyes or Jose Saramago who bended the rule of punctuation and narrative shift as I m witnessing his abilities in Blindness or Samuel Beckett who I feel was so talented that he outdone himself especially in How it is which follows only one rule that there are no rulesThere have been authors in the history of the literature who have bent every rule of the literature language and the raw charm associated with it keeps us on toes and every time we find such authors the childish satisfaction we get amazes us Clarice Lispector could be easily placed at the top of the list having authors who changed the writing the way it is being written She was once labeled as the most non literary author to step into literary realm However she was self taught who had primitive powers like a painter has and artful knowledge about tone of the narrative language dialogue which shows that she was in fact deeply literary She wrote the way no one has written before somewhat like Borges did truly original and astoundingly fresh She was deeply mystified by the world and uncomfortable with the life itself as indeed with narrative we observe it in Hour of the Star too The Hour of the Star published shortly before her death in which all her talents and eccentricities merged and folded in a densely self conscious narrative dealing with the difficulty and odd pleasures of storytelling and then proceeding when it could to tell the story of Macab a a woman who Lispector told an interviewer was so poor that all she ate were hot dogs But she made clear that this was not the story though The story is about a crushed innocence about an anonymous misery The story is unusual to say the least in its very nature starts with an exploding declaration about search for identity for narrator as well for the author It reminds me of Maurice Blanchot since the story is about negating the narrative itself to reveal true existence of it truly self reflective as Blanchot used to do with his narratives For at the hour of death a person becomes a shining movie star it s everyone s moment of glory and it s when as it choral chanting you hear the whooshing shrieks The book follows tale of a woman from the state of Alagoas in the north east of Brazil the Lispectors first lived there when they came to the country who then goes to live in Rio de Janeiro as Clarice did We read this intriguing fable through the observant eyes of Rodrigo SM the narrator of the story The narrator uses his powerful position in delivering the plot including a form of intrusive narration in which the narrator speaks directly to the reader It is perhaps most striking feature about this book other than its uniue protagonist its intriguing metafictional structure wherein you the readers are active participants as forced by the narrator though subtly It is a multi faceted narrative which not only concerns itself with the life of the protagonist but also the life of her creator her god her author It would be na ve to say that story is autobiographical rather it is an exploration of self that is sometimes glimpsed but barely known That girl didn t know she was what she was just as a dog doesn t know it s a dog So she didn t feel unhappy The only thing she wanted was to live She didn t know for what she didn t ask uestions Maybe she thought there was a little bitty glory in living She thought people had to be happy So she was Before her birth was she an idea Before her birth was she dead And after her birth she would die What a thin slice of watermelon The book is written with unparalleled precision in which each sentence seems to be condensed with meditation of a pure artist as those sentences constitute the consternation and disuietness of the narrator as well as they stand alone for aphorisms It is like a treatise about universe which is self initiated and self regulatory omnipresent and ever soliciting authenticity of your existence The narrative is ever alive which has an existence of its own and uses both protagonist and the reader to convey itself But it s not just narrative it s about all primitive life that breathes breathes The narrator too is self created He is capable of awkward asides over confidence in his own method pure fear in the face of the power and powerlessness of the worlds and then sudden passages of soaring beauty and stark definition Just as I m writing at the very same time I m being read We find that the unreliable narrator is not strong enough to mend the fate of the protagonist he could not do anything to help her His voice moves form the darkest wondering about existence of God to almost comic wandering around in his character he is watching her listening to her and then standing back But there are times when the narrator forgets himself as Beckett often does and finds something too interesting or too grotesuely funny to be bothered about uestioning its role in the narrative its truth or its fictiveness Perhaps he is also identifying himself and realizing his true existence through his protagonist Forgive me but I m going to keep talking about me who am unknown to myself and as I write I m a bit surprised because I discover I have a destiny Who hasn t ever wondered amd I a monster or this is what it means to be a person Throughout the story we are being on our toes as we have been pulled into narrative time and again by the omnipotent strange narrator but only to realize that we are still readers and could not really intrude into the narrative The narrative moves from a deep awareness about the tragedy of being alive to a sly allowance for the fact that existence is a comedy which me reminds of Kafka as he used to put his characters in seemingly contradictory absurd situations wherein every probable move by them put out misery and comedy of their existence The protagonist of the story sees her annihilation as some sort of unfulfilled existence which lingers somewhere between life and death wherein the soul could not be freed from existential curse even after death I ll myself so bad when I die The Hour of the Star is a great work of endless interrogation wherein the author the narrator the protagonist and the reader ie you are interrogated by ever changing and unreliable narrative that bangs along and promises no tidy conclusion While the narrator in The Hour of the Star reveals to the audience his wish to ensure the novel s simplicity in terms of writing and stray from philosophical tangents in reality the story is marked by complicated existentialist notions of identity The author often reflects on his conscious effort to do so As the novel unfolds it becomes apparent that this uest for identity is as much about Macab a s search for self as it is the narrator s own Notions of being who we are and who we aren t and the struggle to finding meaning are all touched upon In fact the book looks to be incomplete to an un initiated eye since it leaves so many uestions unanswered But this is exactly how it has been written to uestion the very existence of everything even that of the narrative or text itself which is being written about it the book and its narrative is truly existential in nature Like every writer I am clearly tempted to use succulent terms I have at my command magnificent adjectives robust nouns and verbs so agile that they glide through the atmosphere as they move into action For surely words are actions Yet I have no intention of adorning the word for were I to touch the girl s bread that bread would turn to gold and the girl would be unable to bite into it and conseuently die of hunger

I returned to Clarice Lispector in the hopes of finding an appreciation for her that I missed in The Passion According to GH which confounded and tortured me in its nonsensical philosophical maze I hoped to redeem my less than stellar opinion of her by reading this her last workSadly even in the first few paragraphs I was sighing Clarice For fuck s sake Clarice as it turns out is still Clarice And by that I mean Clarice is a brilliant wackadoodle whose utter originality sets her in a class on her own It is her signature her snowflake her own 148 pointed star You will either love her or not She s so slippery to read I find nothingness in paragraphs that slide by and I get this erroneous feeling that I could skip pages and not miss anything That I could get to the end of her work with my eyes closed and be none the wiser And then I read lines like this All the world began with a yes Thinking is an act Feeling is a fact I write because I m desperate and I m tired I can no longer bear the routine of being me and if not for the always novelty that is writing I would die symbolically every dayAnd I feel an admiration for her even if she is so far away from me that I cannot touch her in all her glorious nothingnessI read somewhere that Clarice Lispector was not well read She was like an innocent in the literary world untainted by other books She didn t know what it was to be kafka esue or compare herself with thinkers like Camus or Woolf She came to her typewriter with a lack of self consciousness a purity that is uite wonderfulSo when I approach this novelette with its eccentric narrator who goes on and on and on for about 14 of the time about simply the telling of the story without actually telling anything at all when I listen to absurd dialogue punctuated with deep philosophical statements when I follow the life of a character that I really don t know and about whom I feel confusion than curiosity when I am frustrated and bored with the relentless esoteric intensity and get the sense that this writer was in love with her own mind than anything else I pause and think thank goodness for her this unicorn of the written word who brought herself to her art whether you like it or not
