    One thought on “A Hora da Estrela”

    1. 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 (ir)reverent sentence:"I 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 sho [...]

    2. Helen Ροζουλί Εωσφόρος Vernus Portitor Arcanus Ταμετούρο Αμούν Arnum says:

      «Ζεσταίνω το σώμα για να ξεκινήσω, τρίβοντας κάθε τόσο τα χέρια το ένα στο άλλο για να πάρω κουράγιο»Με αυτά τα λόγια ξεκινάει την ιστορία ο Ροντρίγο Σ. Μ. Είναι ο συγγραφέας-δημιούργημα της Κλαρίσε Λισπέκτορ και μέσα απο τα λόγια του, τις σκέψεις του, τα συναισθήματα του, μαθ [...]

    3. 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 more 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 he [...]

    4. "Every once in a while she wandered into the better neighborhoods and gazed at the shop windows glittering with jewels and satin clothes — just to mortify herself a bit. Because she needed to find herself and suffering a little is a way of finding."One of these days, I'm going to put out a list of 100 most iconic book characters I have read and Macabea of this little book is going to be one of them. She is beautiful, she is healthy, she is confident, she is clever, she is witty, she is wealthy [...]

    5. Lately I find myself in the frustrating position (not uncommon among booksellers) of being surrounded by far more books than I can read. Not only are there books in the shop, but in my spare moments at work I browse , Abebooks and my local library system, and so have a constant stream of books passing through my hands, many of which I can do no more than glance at before returning them or putting them away for later. Into this deluge has flowed this novella by Clarice Lispector, a book which I h [...]

    6. “Everything in the world began with a yes. One molecule said yes to another molecule and life was born.”Thus opens the The Hour of the Star. Published just before Clarice Lispector’s death, reading it you could wonder if there is little of the intimate Lispector of Near to the Wild Heart. However, she betrays herself from the start. If in her first novel it was by its title, here we discover it in her opening lines. However, it goes much deeper than the mere allusion to Joyce. If here we f [...]

    7. "I swear this book is made without words. It is a mute photograph. This book is a silence. This book is a question."Benjamin Moser's translation of Clarice Lispector's final work is extraordinary. He preserves her unusual word order and her way of bringing new meaning to ordinary words, and the result is an absorbing work that brings the reader right up against existential questions of language and life, questions Lispector was confronting as she completed this novella shortly before her death. [...]

    8. A deceptively short novella with a minimal story which has an underlying philosophical intensity that belies the simple plot. It is the story of Macabea narrated by the rather mysterious Rodrigo SM; he plays a slightly ambiguous role in the story; his asides are amusing and he appears sympathetic. However I suspect he is a rather unreliable and deliberately male narrator. Macabea has moved to Rio from Northern Brazil and is now alone in the world; strictly brought up by her aunt she is portrayed [...]

    9. I’ve been putting off any attempt at writing on this one because: A) it’s rather a challenge without spoilers (although, depending on how one reads the title, the very idea of spoiler is rather silly) and B) this is one I would expect casual readers to dislike…intensely. Which leads me to:You have confused the true and the real. A line that Elizabeth Hand, in Fantasy & Science Fiction calls Dhalgren’s “minatory epigraph.” I’m not a reader of F&SF or Ms Hand, but, dammit, th [...]

    10. Interstellar Heap of DustSim.This is how Clarice Lispector chose to finish her book: with the same word as Joyce did. His famous Yes. But she began with it too. For as she says in her opening line, everything in the world began with a Yes.And so she unfolds her story. Or lets her male narrator unfold it. Several barriers are thus created between her and us and her story – his story. And the Hour of the Star, not one of those in heaven, but the Star as a celebrity, is the title for the story of [...]

    11.                     Because there’s the right to scream.                    So I scream.                    A pure scream and without begging alms.4.5 stars.In Clarice Lispector’s The Hour of the Star, I met a girl who wasn’t there. Was she a young typist from the slums of Rio, as the back cover of the book relates? Well, yes and no. For Macabéa was so wispily not-there, such a “thin slice of watermelon,” that I’m not sure I’d know her if I saw her ag [...]

    12. Θα μου επιτρέψετε να κάνω ένα μικρό πρόλογο πριν σας μιλήσω για τούτο εδώ το βιβλίο. Είμαι αρκετά χρόνια μέλος αυτής της κοινότητας και αν κοιτάξει κανείς τη λίστα με μερικά από τα βιβλία που έχω διαβάσει και έχω βαθμολογήσει και πολύ γενναιόδωρα είναι βιβλία ελαφράς και γυ [...]

    13. Rating: 3.875* of fiveThe Publisher Says: The Hour of the Star, Clarice Lispector's consummate final novel, may well be her masterpiece. Narrated by the cosmopolitan Rodrigo S.M 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-Cola, and her rat of a boyfriend; she would like to be like Marylin Monroe, but she is ugly, underfed, sickly, and unloved. Rodrigo r [...]

    14. The Lispector CallsThe Hour of the Star transcends genre. How, with utter fluidity, does an apparently conventional narrative transform itself into the author's introspective confessional? And when does that slip into narcissistic myopia which then becomes therapeutic technique? Before it develops simultaneously into a romance, a feminist tract, and a pointed sociological commentary? All in 90 pages?Clarice Lispector is difficult to keep up with simply because she writes the simplest prose with [...]

    15. 4.5/5It was a grave mistake to commit to a binge of 200 or less page works, especially after so long a stint of the eighth longest novel in existence, third longest in English (looking at you, Women and Men) because I had forgotten how utterly manic tiny works can leave me. Can, because this is not a common complaint, as the last time this happened was with poor Zweig's Chess Story that left me bawling in my brain and stone cold in my expression. You should try it some time. I don't really mean [...]

    16. Αν αυτό το σύντομο μυθιστόρημα ήταν ενέργεια στο Facebook, θα ήταν το poke. Κάπως ενοχλητικό, εντελώς διαδραστικό, σίγουρα λιγάκι obsolete. Είναι και διάφορα άλλα βέβαια.Είναι κυνικό. Κυνικό βέβαια με ένα τρόπο που δε μου ταιριάζει ιδιαίτερα, γι' αυτό και δεν μπορώ να πω πως η ανάγνωση [...]

    17. Ένας συγγραφέας προσπαθεί να γράψει μια ιστορία.Παλεύει με τον εαυτό του, με τις λέξεις και την ίδια την ιστορία,νιώθει την ανάγκη να την γράψει,να την βγάλει απο μέσα του αλλά δυσκολεύεται,τον πονάει.Η ηρωίδα του είναι τόσο ασήμαντη που στην αρχή δεν έχει καν όνομα.Είναι έν [...]

    18. Clarice Lispector (1920-1977)Forgive me but I'm going to keep talking about me who am unknown to myself, and as I write I'm a bit surprised because I discover I have a destiny. Who hasn't ever wondered: am I a monster or is this what it means to be a person? doesn't need yet another review of Clarice Lispector's The Hour of the Star (1977), published shortly before she was taken to hospital to succumb to inoperable ovarian cancer. I held my peace after reading her first novel, Near to the Wild H [...]

    19. Παράξενο βιβλίο. Κι η Μακκαμπέα. Αχ, η Μακκαμπέα. Πώς να μην υπερχειλίσουν μέσα σου μια γλυκερή, πονετική κατανόηση γι' αυτή τη γυναίκα, εύθραστη και ετοιμόρροπη απ' τις καθημερινές ξηρασίες της ζωής;Παρ' όλα αυτά, Η ώρα του αστεριού μου φάνηκε με έναν τρόπο ενοχλητικό ανάγνωσ [...]

    20. Quedé fascinada con esta autora desdeLa bella y la bestia.Y si los cuentos de ese libro, cuya publicación fue póstuma, me introdujeron al extraño mundo de Clarice Lispector,La hora de la estrellaterminó de convencerme y ahora quiero quedarme a vivir allí. Parece un mundo ordinario, en donde vemos vivencias ordinarias de gente ordinaria, pero hay algo que no lo es: la forma de contarlo. Lispector toma un hecho y lo trata de adentro hacia afuera, de modo que uno se cruza con pensamientos aje [...]

    21. Sempre tive um pé atrás em relação à Clarice por conta de uma entrevista a que assisti. O que me incomodava é que ela não se deixava ir muito a fundo. Por mais objetiva que fosse a pergunta do jornalista, ela não se despia daquela aura enigmática, respondendo sempre de maneira oblíqua. O medo era encontrar nos livros muitas frases de efeito e pouco conteúdo. Pura besteira!A hora da estrela é de uma sensibilidade rara. O narrador estabelece uma relação complexa com a personagem, rep [...]

    22. There are these deep sea vents? They spew hot weird chemicals up from the middle of the earth and this whole ecosystem, all this life, has evolved all by itself down there. It doesn't work like ours does, it doesn't use the sun for energy, it's off doing its own thing entirely. I might be getting this wrong. I'm no scientistke this but with booksAnyway, but "She's never read anything," said Clarice Lispector's first translator, Elizabeth Bishop. "She's the most non-literary writer I've ever know [...]

    23. I know that women are not intrinsically weak, that they are not more vulnerable than men; I know that unhappiness is not gender specific, that both sexes can suffer equally, and yet something deep in my psyche tells me that a woman’s sadness, her pain, is worse than a man’s, that it is less acceptable or tolerable. Philip Larkin once wrote that ‘they fuck you up, your mum and dad, they may not mean to but they do,’ and I don’t know if I would go that far, but if I had to trace these fe [...]

    24. 1986 translation by Giovanni Pontiero[4.5] Camp verbal high drama of the greatest sincerity [see Susan Sontag's 'Notes on Camp' re. significance of sincerity] transforms the potentially infuriating framing device of a fussy amateur writer, and the abject slum-life of his main character, into quite glorious fireworks. What a difference a translation makes! Not for the first time of course, but somehow it took experience to remind me just how much. I never could get into Robert Baldick's version o [...]

    25. Someone is walking on my grave. Lispector is MJ Nicholl’s doppelganger. I’m sure he hasn’t heard of her, which makes the similarities of exactness between aPostmodern Belch and The Hour eerie. Not only do we have the narrator fooling around with three characters (Macabea, Gloria and Olympico) who are clearly facets of herself, but on page 57 we even have ‘quiddidity’ apropos Macabaea: need I say more?Its no secret Macabea is a ‘loser’, an anti-heroine, an anonymous nonentity, wretc [...]

    26. A Lispector novel in its beaded moments of universality that nourishes both an aesthetic and philosophical search. Economizing to contour itself within its battle with time, "The Hour of the Star" slides us alongside the hollowed cosmopolitan writer, Rodrigo S.M. as he faces the tribulations of writing a novel that comes to him, arrives without his seeking, and a character that haunts beyond his control.His battle to remove himself by not adding qualifiers to his writing but to let the character [...]

    27. Ένα καταπληκτικό πεζό ποίημα. Αν αφεθείς, σε μαγεύει η γραφή της. Μου άρεσε πάρα πολύ.

    28. Θετικά:+Εξαιρετική επιμέλεια βιβλίου (εξωτερική εμφάνιση,γραμματοσειρά,οπισθόφυλλο που παραπλανεί).+Αρκετά ενδιαφέρον επίμετρο: η Ελέν Σιξού κατάφερε να "ξεκλειδώσει" το παρόν έργο,προτείνω να διαβάζεται πρώτα το επίμετρο και μετά η νουβέλα των 100 περίπου σελίδων.+Η εισαγω [...]

    29. So Mr. Moser does the Lispector biography which I plan on reading soon as it arrives in my waiting hands, but then I read this bit here that Moser himself translated and he is making his comments of gushing praise for it saying that the book was the very first exposure he had to Lispector's genius and I am at the very same time finding myself getting a little bit sick to my stomach with all this loving on her, though I do realize she was beautiful in a Marlene Dietrich sort of way, and I also kn [...]

    30. So very strange: A Brazillian feminist luminary writing through a somewhat pompous, depressive middle-aged male narrator, himself penning (obsessing over) the merciless story of an sickly, impoverished typist who faces her station and inevitable fate with an odd acceptance somewhere between grace and lack of imagination. So much is going on in its mere 90 pages that I'm going to have to dive back in tomorrow when I'm more awake to let it sink in a bit more fully.And one subway ride later:On seco [...]
