REVIEW â eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Õ Clarice Lispector Clarice Lispector Õ 7 READ & DOWNLOAD READ & DOWNLOAD A hora da estrela 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. What a delightful surprise I didn t know anything about Clarice Lispector when I picked up this slim novel and started reading She had me in her dedication already starting with the irreverent sentenceI dedicate this thing here to old Schumann and his sweet Clara who today alas are bones Nothing drags me into a story like such an opening What can I expect Irony sarcasm cultural reflections on music a novel or a thing of some other definition Absolutely brilliant One short sentence a universe of uestions A light tone indicating deeper thoughts A sense of humour and respect for cultural achievements and human connectionsI then make the acuaintance of one of the most eccentric narrators I have ever met who claims to tell the story of a young woman but is concerned with himself and his ultimate reasons for writing The process of telling the story is immediately the main focus Make no mistake I only achieve simplicity with enormous effort For the reader however the simplicity is not necessarily evident On the contrary the narrator moves around slowly in circles offering bits and pieces The story I determine with false free will will have around seven characters and I am obviously one of the important In contradiction to his self proclaimed importance he also announces that his main task is to describe a young girl in a simple manner I humbly limit myself without trumpeting my humility for then it wouldn t be humble I limit myself to telling of the lame adventures of a girl in a city that s entirely against her This of course makes me laugh out loud at its brilliant silliness and the narrator catapults himself into the realm of Uriah Heep making the very umble servant of David Copperfield look like a dilettante The narrator is physically engaged in the act of writing it makes him suffer and feel frustration especially since his main character is so annoying This brings to mind other stories where characters and narrators struggle with each other most notably Martin Amis London Fields where it is the other way around one of the characters being frustrated with the narrator s lack of drive Muriel Spark staged a determined female main character who forced the narrator to tag along with her while taking The Driver s Seat herself It also recalls Pirandello s wonderful play Sei personaggi in cerca d autore where the connection between narrator and characters has yet to be established in a kind of job interviewAs a reflection on storytelling and the intricate net of relationships between authors narrators characters and readers this is an outstanding masterpiece I could uote every single page It is also an impressive account of the different layers of human identity and of how we establish what we are and why It goes to the root of the monstrosity of the human condition asking if we are normal or misfits Who has not asked himself at some time or other am I a monster or is this what it means to be a person And it clarifies the needs of the creative thinking person picking up Virginia Woolf s idea from A Room of One s Own She had a room all to herself She could hardly believe that all this space was hers And not a word was heard So she danced in an act of absolute courage since her aunt couldn t hear her She danced and twirled because being alone made her f r e e It explores the uestion of truth belief and reality Sometimes lies are decent and well mannered than truth Sometimes things exist only because we believe in them and sometimes we ask forgiveness of beings we know do not exist and we are forgivenAs a plot this book is made of nothing But that hardly matters at all It is full of life

At times known as the greatest Jewish writer since Kafka Clarice Lispector was one of the foremost Brazilian writers of the 20th century Born Chaya Pinkhasovna her family emigrated from the Ukraine to Recife Brazil when young Chaya was a little than a year old It was in the northeastern corner of South America s largest country that Lispector found the inspiration for her life s work writing The Hour of the Star is called by many to be her greatest work published within a year of her death in 1977 Because this novella is an entry in 500 Great Books By Women by Erica Bauermeister I was intrigued to read this uniue view on life and death amid the slums of Rio de JaneiroLispector chooses to make Brazilian poverty still a hot button issue today as the focus of her last novel In the opening pages it is unclear who the novel s main protagonist is but after an opening stream of consciousness monologue we meet Macabea who has come to Rio from Alagoas close to Lispector s home state of Recife While the Pinkhasovna family became Americanized almost immediately upon arrival in Brazil Lispector conseuently did not write about Jewish themes however as her own mortality loomed she created a character in Macabea who was both Jewish and autobiographical Sharing my own family s Ukrainian origins the I found the concept of a character based on the Macabees intriguing and I was able to empathize with Macabea once I got past the surreal opening existential seuence Macabea was rejected from childhood Her parents both passed away and she was raised by an aunt who resembled an evil stepmother She deprived Macabea of all joys in life physically beating to the point of sterility As soon as Macabea came of age in Alagoas the aunt wanted to be rid of her and sent her packing to a cramped apartment in the red light slum district of Brazil One could not help but feel for sorry for this protagonist she was ugly yet did not realize it a virgin too poor to eat much than Coca Cola and coffee without milk and only got paid from her boss as an afterthought Macabea evokes a mixture of Cinderella an adult Cosette and Eliza Doolittle before she was rescued from poverty In a nutshell Macabea is an ugly duckling of the world with no future as she lives in the slums of Rio one of the world s most impoverished neighborhoods It would take a miracle to save this young woman who unfortunately does not realize how horrendous her existence isEven the other characters in this novella view Macabea as beyond salvation Olimpico comes from the same town in northeastern Brazil and befriends her not as a boyfriend but because he feels sorry for her bleak life Yet Macabea is too dim to realize this and pins false hopes on their almost nonexistent relationship Adding to sorrow is that Macabea naively introduces Olimpico to her sensuous co worker Gloria and the two immediately become a couple Each succeeding paragraph adds to Macabea s grief and one could almost wish that she was better off dead Interspersed with the prose are many asides in Lispector s own voice as an author She apologizes to her readers that much of Macabea s story is actually her own and that she has to take breaks from creating these one dimensional characters because she has grown tired of them Yet the protagonist and author are one and the same hailing from Recife living in pain fighting off eventual death As a result I looked past the existentialism and stream of consciousness that I do not usually enjoy to find out if the end result for Macabea was death or the survival reminiscent of her namesakeThe Hour of the Star is my first forage into the greatest of Clarice Lispector For a novella this story had to be taken in chunks because it was tough to swallow all in one sitting Knowing that this was published posthumously and written while Lispector was dying of cancer made me empathize all the with her protagonist Macabea Despite the writing style that I am usually not fond of I found this story to hold my attention if not for the sorrows befalling both the lead protagonist and author I would be intrigued to read of Lispector s earlier novels to get a further glimpse at her body of work one that lead to her inclusion in an anthology of great books written by women375 stars
