Breath of Life, Paperback / softback Book

Breath of Life Paperback / softback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series

Description

A Breath of Life is Clarice Lispector's final novel, 'written in agony', which she did not live to see published.

Sensual and mysterious, it is a mystical dialogue between a god-like author and the creation he breathes life into: the speaking, shifting, indefinable Angela Pralini.

As he has created Angela, so, eventually, he must let her die, for life is merely 'a kind of madness that death makes.' This is a unique, elegiac meditation on the creation of life, and of art.
