By Earl E. Fitz
Pushed by way of an unfulfilled wish for the impossible, eventually indefinable different, the protagonists of the novels and tales of acclaimed Brazilian author Clarice Lispector exemplify and humanize a number of the matters principal to poststructuralist idea, from the character of language, fact, and desiring to the risky relationships among language, being, and fact. during this e-book, Earl Fitz demonstrates that, in flip, poststructuralism deals vital and revealing insights into all features of Lispector's writing, together with her type, experience of constitution, characters, subject matters, and socio-political conscience.
Fitz attracts on Lispector's whole oeuvre--novels, tales, cronicas, and children's literature--to argue that her writing continuously displays the elemental tenets of poststructuralist conception. He exhibits how Lispector's characters fight over and humanize poststructuralist dilemmas and the way their crucial feel of being is deeply depending on a moving, and customarily transgressive, feel of wish and sexuality.
