Om författaren

Jorge Amado, August 10, 1912 - August 6, 2001 Elected to the Brazilian Academy of Letters, Jorge Amado possesses a talent for storytelling as well as a deep concern for social and economic justice. He was born in Bahia, Brazil, in 1912. Some critics claim that his early works suffer from his visa mer politics. Others commonly express reservations concerning Amado's sentimentality and erotico-mythic stereotyping. In the works represented in English translation, his literary merits prevail. The Violent Land (1942) chronicles the development of Brazilian territory and struggles for its resources, memorializing the deeds of those who built the country. Gabriela, Clove and Cinnamon (1958), which achieved critical and popular success in both Brazil and the United States, tells a sensual love story of a Syrian bar owner and his beautiful cook. Home Is the Sailor (1962) introduces Captain Vasco Moscoso de Aragao, a comic figure in the tradition of Don Quixote. In Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands (1966), Amado introduced the folk culture of shamans and Yorube gods. The protagonists of Shepherds of the Night (1964) are Bahia's poor. (Bowker Author Biography) Jorge Amado has been called the greatest twentieth-century Brazilian novelist. He was born in 1912 in Ilheus, in the northeastern-most state of Bahai. This area serves as the backdrop for most of Amado's work, which reflects a deep appreciation of the Brazilian essence. Amado's works have made him a national figure in Brazil. Amado's early novels were shaped by a belief in Marxism, and relate the sufferings of humble fishermen and cocoa plantation workers. By the 1950s, he had turned his attention to the plight of middle-class Bahains. This more jovial approach brought him worldwide acclaim, and his keen comic sense and appreciation of the common man have drawn comparisons to the novels of Charles Dickens. Music, cuisine, and passion figure prominently in Amado's literary output. Amado's works have been translated from Portuguese into more than forty languages, have sold over fifty million copies worldwide, and have been reworked for film, television, and stage. His portraits of commanding female characters, including Gabriela from Gabriela, Clove and Cinnamon, and Dona Flor from Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands, have been adapted to the screen, and actress Sonia Braga earned her initial success in these roles. Other titles include The Sand Captains; Memory of a Child; The War of the Saints; and Home Is the Sailor. (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

Kort biografi
Blurb: Jorge Amado, geboren in 1912, wordt beschouwd als de grootste schrijver in Brazilië. Met meer dan 8 miljoen exemplaren van zijn boeken in druk is hij de spreekbuis en getuige van zijn geliefde volk. Hij weet zowel hun armoede als hun strijd, hun hartstochten en hun dromen op onnavolgbare wijze op te roepen. Amper 19 jaar oud publiceerde Amado zijn eerste werk en reeds op 23-jarige leeftijd was hij een der succesvolste auteurs van Zuid-Amerika. De tientallen romans die deze eminente volksverteller heeft gecreëerd, waaronder de internationale bestsellers Gabriele, Dona Flore en haar twee echtgenoten, Vlinders van de nacht en Tereza Batista, zijn vertaald in 45 talen en gepubliceerd in 60 landen. Tocaia Grande, in drie haar tijd geschreven, is de meest gedurfde en meest luisterrijke roman uit Amado’s roemrijke schrijversloopbaan. Deze wonderlijke, onvergetelijke geschiedenis van een werkelijk unieke stad, waarin opnieuw de zelfkant van de Braziliaanse samenleving centraal staat, is wederom onmiddelijk een wereldwijde bestseller geworden (flaptekst).

O temperamento do Gato Malhado não era nada bom: bastava aparecer no parque para todos fugirem às pressas. E ele não se importava mesmo com os outros, ia tocando a vida com a indiferença habitual. Até que, chegada certa primavera, o Gato nota que a Andorinha Sinhá não tem receio algum dele.
Foi o suficiente para que dali nascesse a amizade dos dois, que se aprofunda com o tempo. No outono, os bichos já viam o Gato com outros olhos, achando que talvez ele não fosse tão ruim e perigoso, uma vez que passara toda a primavera e o verão sem aprontar. Durante esse tempo, até soneto o Gato escreveu. E confessou à Andorinha: "Se eu não fosse um gato, te pediria para casares comigo". Mas o amor entre os dois é proibido, não só porque o Gato é visto com desconfiança, mas também porque a Andorinha está prometida ao Rouxinol.
Jorge Amado colheu a história desse amor impossível de uma trova do poeta Estêvão da Escuna, que a costumava recitar no Mercado das Sete Portas, em Salvador, e a colocou no papel com o tom fabular dos contos infanto-juvenis em 1948, quando vivia em Paris. Não era uma história para ser publicada em livro, mas um presente para o filho, João Jorge, que completava um ano de idade. Guardado entre as coisas do menino, o texto só foi reencontrado em 1976. João Jorge entregou então a narrativa a Carybé, que ilustrou as páginas datilografadas. Jorge Amado deu-se por vencido: o livro foi publicado no mesmo ano.
O texto foi adaptado mais tarde para teatro e balé.

Gabriela wie Zimt und Nelken (portugiesisch: Gabriela, Cravo e Canela) ist ein Roman des brasilianischen Schriftstellers Jorge Amado, den die Companhia das Letras 1958 in São Paulo herausbrachte. Die Übertragung ins Deutsche von Gerhard Lazarus und Ernst August Nicklas erschien 1962 in Berlin.[1]

Der Weltbestseller wurde innerhalb von 25 Jahren auf allen Kontinenten in 62 Auflagen mit summa summarum knapp einer Million Exemplaren verkauft.[2]

Verlockend für die Mulattin Gabriela, jene nach Nelken duftende Frau mit der zimt­farbenen Haut, ist die sexuelle Fessel, die da Ehe heißt: einen Ehering tragen – wie wunderbar. Der Ehealltag aber dann sieht anders aus als vorgeträumt. Also wirft Gabriela das Ehejoch ab und hat die alte Freiheit wieder. Somit ist der Erziehungsversuch des Gatten gescheitert. Gabriela steigt nicht in die besseren Kreise auf. Jorge Amado schreibt: „Gabriela ist gut, großzügig, impulsiv und rein. Man kann ihre guten und schlechten Eigenschaften aufzählen, erklären kann man sie nicht. Sie tut das, was ihr Freude macht; sie weigert sich, das zu tun, was ihr keine Freude macht.“(wikipedia)… (mer)

Úsměvné a lehce satirické vyprávění o intimním manželském životě půvabné učitelky kuchařského umění s jejími dvěma partnery, z nichž první je roztomilý flákač a hráč rulety, zatímco druhý je úctyhodným lékárníkem.

3 volně spjaté novely. Lyrický a satirický tón najdeme ve třech příbězích Pastýřů noci splývající v jediném vyprávění o barvitých příhodách, jenž se udály v bahijském hlavním městě Salvadoru
