Delve Online: Clarice Lispector: The Passion and Água Viva

This Delve takes place online with Zoom teleconferencing. Participants will receive instructions for how to log on to the Zoom meeting.
In The Passion According to G.H. Clarice Lispector offers us a story where very little happens, but where the transformation of the protagonist—alongside the reader—is a path with no return. A trivial, almost insignificant event leads to a deep philosophical reflection of the character’s life and her mysterious inner self.
“It’s with such profound happiness.” Those are the first words of Água Viva, an in-depth narrative about time, life, death, dreams and creation, where a stream of consciousness gives meaning to the protagonist’s surroundings.
Both novels are placed in the threshold of the author’s existential thoughts, where silence is also a powerful means of expression.
