Please continue to check back on the site to share in their conversation over the course of this week. Read the first part of the exchange here. Hi Nathan, Thanks very much for this!
But no one can claim the key to her entirely, not even in Portuguese. She haunts us each in different ways. I have presented you the Clarice that I hear best. Lispector gives the impression of a woman looking from the outside in, always taking notes.
Like Borges, she expects you to follow her fantastic trains of thought, but she is unconcerned as to whether you enjoy the ride or not.
In Complete Stories, eggs become infinite metaphoric permutations interestingly, Lispector would die of ovarian cancer, on the eve of her 57th birthdaya lonely, red-headed girl and a red-headed basset hound discover they are soulmates, but destined never to be together, and a woman has a face.
When did you first encounter Clarice Lispector, and did you have a form of epiphany moment when you discovered her? I first started reading her in I was living in Rio de Janeiro and teaching English at a private English school called Britannia, and I had moved to Brazil that year speaking some Portuguese but, but it was—I spoke French, and then I was listening to these cassette tapes.
I would listen to cassette tapes that they would use to teach the Foreign Service how to learn a foreign language.
I would listen to these Portuguese tapes before going. So I was learning Portuguese, but I wanted to read something serious.
I had been in Brazil for almost a year, and it was right before the winter break, where you get the end of December through January off. It just sounds like, oh, the passion.
I picked it off the bookshelf. I took it with me to the Amazon. I did this crazy trip to the Amazon where it was like six days on a kayak, down this tributary of the Rio Negro, and then after that, I read The Passion According to G.
This is so crazy. I started taking literature classes there and I re-encountered her through the literature classes. It made it easier to read, but I realized this is just a really, really crazy writer.
I really liked it, but it just took me so long just to feel like I could understand what she was doing. She does offer a lot intellectually. You can analyze her stories to the end of time, but I think the way to into her is to let go of that need to understand her in a rational way.
Over time, my relationship to her has changed. I felt like I could just kind of dive into her. That came later, because then I went to grad school and then I was writing about her, so it was a very different experience.
That brings me to my next question actually. She was greatly influenced by Clarice in terms of the voice in her fictional writing. She says in an interview [at Trinity College, Cambridge University]: Let us say that I worked for two years to really understand her thought.
That is the person who encountered Clarice Lispector, which is to say, someone who had a long literary, poetic and political experience, and I had the good fortune to recognize in Clarice Lispector a companion and a contemporary woman.
Or did you have to put space between yourself and Clarice before professionally pursuing her work, or during the process of it? My last chapter of my dissertation was supposed to be about her and I have a draft of it I just ended up dropping.
I dropped her entirely from my dissertation. When I finished translating, I felt such urgency to finish the dissertation.The Roles of Women And Animals in Lispector’s Short Story ( words, 4 pages) Women and animals are closely linked in Lispectors short story by their shared position of alterity beyond and beneath the traditional concepts of gender roles.
It can be proven that Lispector uses animals to show her emotion, however she indirectly places it for the readers to open the door and search for the meaning. In the some of the short . Much of her writing features women whose lives unfold in domestic spaces, women who navigate traditional feminine duties such as housework and caregiving alongside the perils and pleasures of love, motherhood, romance, sex, money, and the mysteries of the world beyond the front door.
