    eBook Why This World PDF ì Why This PDF/EPUB ² ´ bricksnboho.co.uk this free, world free, Why This free, Why This World PDFAn interesting introduction to the life of Lispector at times it spends too long on details of Brazilian and other politics which makes it somewhat uneven Moser can be repetitive on CL's thought and philosophy with multi page uotations from her texts and too much storytelling rather than analysis so not a scholarly or critical assessment but it's useful to a new reader as I am to have so much background material collected together here including extracts from letters interviews and the writings of her sister friends and colleagues

    eBook Why This World PDF ì Why This PDF/EPUB ² ´ bricksnboho.co.uk this free, world free, Why This free, Why This World PDFI enjoyed this overview of Clarice Lispector and learning some small facts about her life and personality helped immensely with being able to read her works Why this World fell short of a four star for me because I thought that Moser dedicated too much page space to his own analysis of her works and imposed his own judgements on the facts of her life He was present on every page often overshadowing and imposing on Clarice I would have liked to see of the content from letters and diaries of friends discussing her as contemporaries and something from her own personal papers that are not part of her published bibliography Instead there were incredibly long passages uoted directly from her short stories and novels followed by long passages of Moser's analysis taking almost half of the page count Although I know this sort of analysis is common in literary biography I wanted to know about Clarice Lispecto
