1 Review
Escrita poco antes de morir e inedita en castellano, Un soplo de vida es la ultima indagacion literaria de Clarice Lispector y, quiza, su mas intensa meditacion sobre el sentido de la vida y del acto de escribir libre de toda atadura. Para todos aquellos lectores de esta gran escritora brasilena, esta obra postuma arrojara, sin duda, una nueva luz sobre lo mas intimo de su escritura.

About the author (1978)

Clarice Lispector was born in the Ukraine and was taken to Brazil as a young child. She was a law student, editor, translator, and newswriter, who traveled widely, spending eight years in the United States. "Family Ties" (1960) is a collection of short stories revealing Lispector's existentialist view of life and demonstrating that even family ties and social relationships are temporary. Although tied to each other and to the outside world, the characters are finally totally alone and separate. Lispector received praise from American critics for "The Apple in the Dark" (1967), a novel about a guilt-ridden man's search for the ultimate knowledge (Eve's apple), which he believes will bring him hope. Lispector's books are being translated into various languages in Europe, especially in France, where the critic Helene Cixous is one of her great admirers and a promoter of her works.
