Closer to the Wild Heart : Essays on Clarice Lispector Paperback / softback


The Brazilian author Clarice Lispector (1920-77) is arguably Latin America's most celebrated woman writer.

Yet her prose has remained tantalizingly elusive, resisting any facile appropriation and lending itself to being read in a variety of contexts.

Lispector's enigmatic yet luminous writings warrant fresh, multidisciplinary readings.

Here, twelve distinguished international scholars discuss the modernity pulsating throughout Lispector's work, examining not only her unconventional novels and famous short stories, but also her chronicles and children's books, in order to reassess her groundbreaking exploration of the fluid categories of gender and genre, and her hybrid textualizations of time, self and nation.
