Inaugurado em 1898, na Place Vendôme, no coração de Paris, o Hôtel Ritz logo se tornou sinônimo de luxo e exclusividade, frequentado por estrelas de cinema e escritores célebres, ricas herdeiras americanas, playboys excêntricos, políticos e príncipes. Na década de 1920, o bar do hotel se tornou o ponto de encontro de F. Scott Fitzgerald e outros autores da Geração Perdida, entre eles Ernest Hemingway. Em 1940, quando a França foi dominada pelos alemães, o Ritz foi o único hotel de alto luxo autorizado pelo Terceiro Reich a continuar funcionando na cidade ocupada. Em O hotel na Place Vendôme, Tilar Mazzeo investiga a história desse marco cultural desde a sua inauguração na Paris de fin de siècle até a era moderna. E, acima de tudo, faz uma crônica extraordinária da vida no Ritz durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial, quando o hotel serviu, ao mesmo tempo, de quartel-general dos mais graduados oficiais alemães e de lar dos milionários que permaneceram na cidade, entre eles Coco Chanel. Mazzeo nos conduz pelos salões de jantar, suítes, bares e adegas do imponente edifício, revelando um território propício para negócios ilícitos e intrigas mortais, além de extraordinários atos de rebeldia e traição. Rico em detalhes e repleto de histórias fascinantes, O hotel na Place Vendôme é uma narrativa impressionante sobre glamour, opulência e extravagância, e também sobre conexões perigosas, espionagem e resistência. Uma viagem inesquecível a um período único e intrigante da história, quando a França — e toda a Europa — sofreu transformações que definiriam o mundo como o conhecemos hoje.

In these inspiring essays about why we read, Proust explores all the pleasures and trials that we take from books, as well as explaining the beauty of Ruskin and his work, and the joys of losing yourself in literature as a child. Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves – and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives – and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are.

'Literature is not innocent,' stated Georges Bataille in this extraordinary 1957 collection of essays, arguing that only by acknowledging its complicity with the knowledge of evil can literature communicate fully and intensely. These literary profiles of eight authors and their work, including Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights, Baudelaire's Les Fleurs du Mal and the writings of Sade, Kafka and Sartre, explore subjects such as violence, eroticism, childhood, myth and transgression, in a work of rich allusion and powerful argument.

"It is a truth universally acknowledged . . ." that a single woman in possession of a good character but no fortune must be in want of a wealthy husband—that is, if she is the heroine of a nineteenth-century novel. Senhora, by contrast, turns the tables on this familiar plot. Its strong-willed, independent heroine Aurélia uses newly inherited wealth to "buy back" and exact revenge on the fiancé who had left her for a woman with a more enticing dowry. This exciting Brazilian novel, originally published in 1875 and here translated into English for the first time, raises many questions about traditional gender relationships, the commercial nature of marriage, and the institution of the dowry. While conventional marital roles triumph in the end, the novel still offers realistic insights into the social and economic structure of Rio de Janeiro in the mid-1800s. With its unexpected plot, it also opens important new perspectives on the nineteenth-century Romantic novel.

Euclides da Cunha's classic account of the brutal campaigns against religious mystic Antonio Conselheiro has been called the Bible of Brazilian nationality. "Euclides da Cunha went on the campaigns [against Conselheiro] as a journalist and what he returned with and published in 1902 is still unsurpassed in Latin American literature. Cunha is a talent as grand, spacious, entangled with knowledge, curiosity, and bafflement as the country itself. . . . On every page there is a heart of idea, speculation, dramatic observation that tells of a creative mission undertaken, the identity of the nation, and also the creation of a pure and eloquent prose style."—Elizabeth Hardwick, Bartleby in Manhattan

Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands

Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands

Author: Jorge Amado
Publisher:
ISBN: 1852427108
Pages: 553
Year: 1999
When Dona Flor's husband dies suddenly, she forgets all his defects and remembers only his passion. Erotic nightmares haunt her. Dr Teodoro, a local pharmacist, proposes marriage and Dona Flor accepts, hoping to recapture the ecstasy she now craves. One night, her first husband materializes naked at the foot of her bed, eager to reclaim his conjugal rights. The visit is the first of many, as Dona Flor, racked by desire but reluctant to betray the upright pharmacist, responds to the ethereal demands of her first husband. Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands shows why Jorge Amado is Brazil's best-known writer. It is the work of a brilliant story-teller whose love for his characters matches his powers of evocation. An epic book.

Os sete volumes da obra 'Em busca do tempo perdido' constituem um emaranhado complexo de personagens, cenas, detalhes que reaparecerão muito depois e somente aí adquirem seu real significado, articulados pela memória que, ativada por circunstâncias fortuitas, medita livre por diferentes campos, sendo as artes um dos mais frequentados. Este primeiro volume também procura exemplificar isso, pois Swann, um dos principais personagens, é um refinado aristocrata conhecedor de literatura, colecionador de objetos de arte e frequente nos salões parisienses. O narrador o conheceu quando criança em Combray, cidadezinha imaginária onde ele passava as férias de Páscoa. No segundo, o narrador, já adolescente, desistindo do amor de Gilberte, filha de Swann, parte com a avó em viagem de férias para a fictícia praia de Balbec, com imaginárias ruínas antigas, em seu périplo de conhecimento da arte e de si. Assim, cada volume e todos se transformam em complexo programa de formação estética e humanística. Neste volume, Proust se dedica principalmente à narração de sua infância e adolescência.

A prescient warning of a future we now inhabit, where fake news stories and Internet conspiracy theories play to a disaffected American populace “A glorious book . . . A spirited defense of science . . . From the first page to the last, this book is a manifesto for clear thought.”—Los Angeles Times How can we make intelligent decisions about our increasingly technology-driven lives if we don’t understand the difference between the myths of pseudoscience and the testable hypotheses of science? Pulitzer Prize-winning author and distinguished astronomer Carl Sagan argues that scientific thinking is critical not only to the pursuit of truth but to the very well-being of our democratic institutions. Casting a wide net through history and culture, Sagan examines and authoritatively debunks such celebrated fallacies of the past as witchcraft, faith healing, demons, and UFOs. And yet, disturbingly, in today's so-called information age, pseudoscience is burgeoning with stories of alien abduction, channeling past lives, and communal hallucinations commanding growing attention and respect. As Sagan demonstrates with lucid eloquence, the siren song of unreason is not just a cultural wrong turn but a dangerous plunge into darkness that threatens our most basic freedoms. Praise for The Demon-Haunted World “Powerful . . . A stirring defense of informed rationality. . . Rich in surprising information and beautiful writing.”—The Washington Post Book World “Compelling.”—USA Today “A clear vision of what good science means and why it makes a difference. . . . A testimonial to the power of science and a warning of the dangers of unrestrained credulity.”—The Sciences “Passionate.”—San Francisco Examiner-Chronicle
