A Breath of Life jellemzők

A Breath of Life is Clarice Lispector's last published novel, 'written in agony'. Sensual and mysterious, it is a mystical dialogue between a god-like author and the creation he breathes life into: the speaking, shifting, indefinable Angela Pralini. As he has created Angela, so, eventually, he must let her die, for life is merely 'a kind of madness that death makes'. This is a unique, elegiac meditation on the creation of life, and of art.
