By Cornélio Penna

Nascido em 1896, em Petrópolis, Cornélio Penna, após formar-se na faculdade de Direito de São Paulo, dedicou-se à pintura, gravura e ilustração antes de escrever os romances que o consagraram como o criador do realismo psicológico brasileiro. As marcas da experiência plástica, no entanto, estão presentes nos capítulos curtos de Fronteira, que em um ambiente estranho e quase onírico, leva o leitor a se inebriar e a praticamente enxergar os plenty vaporosos e sombrios das cenas de uma casa no inside de Minas Gerais.
Com paisagens e personagens de arestas opacas, a única certeza é que há nesse lugar indefinido uma fronteira que, nas palavras de Francisco Foot Hardman, fica entre "sonho e realidade, entre passado e presente, entre average e sobrenatural, entre crença e descrença, entre lucidez e loucura".

Download Lady Chatterley (German Edition) by David Herbert Lawrence,Christa Jansohn,Guido Huß,Georg PDF

By David Herbert Lawrence,Christa Jansohn,Guido Huß,Georg Goyert

Leidenschaftlich und mit hohem künstlerischem und moralischem Anspruch widmete sich D.H. Lawrence den großen Fragen seiner Zeit – der er oft weit voraus warfare. „Lady Chatterley`s Lover“, sein letzter großer, 1928 fertiggestellter, aber erst seit 1960 in ungekürzter shape öffentlich verfügbarer Roman um den schwer kriegsversehrten Sir Clifford, seine Frau girl Chatterley und deren Liebhaber, den Förster Mellors, ist dafür ein Paradebeispiel. Eindrucksvoll schildert Lawrence die gesellschaftlichen Verkrustungen seiner Zeit, unter denen seine Protagonisten leiden, und er erzählt – unkonventionell und freizügig – wie schön die Liebe sein kann, wenn sie von Zwängen befreit ist.
Die hier vorliegende Übersetzung der „Lady Chatterley“ von Georg Goyert, der seinen Ruf als großer Übersetzer mit der von James Joyce autorisierten Übertragung des „Ulysses“ ins Deutsche begründete, ist ein editorisches Juwel. Es wurde 2013 im Nachlass von Goyert aufgefunden; seine wissenschaftliche Bearbeitung und Einordnung hat die Bamberger Anglistin Christa Jansohn übernommen, die auch das Vorwort zu diesem publication verfasst hat.
