Clarice Lispector

From Academic Kids

Clarice Lispector (December 10 1920 - December 9 1977) was a Brazilian writer.

She was born in Chechelnyk, a village in Ukraine and moved to Brazil when she was 2 months old. In 1944 she published her first novel Perto do Cora磯 Selvagem (Close to the Wild Heart). When the novel was published, many claimed that her stream-of-consciousness writing style was under heavy influence of Virginia Woolf or James Joyce, but she had read neither of these authors.

She died of cancer in 1977 just one day before her 57th birthday and she was buried in at the Israeli Cemetery of Caj? Rio de Janeiro.

Her most famous novel is A Hora da Estrela, or The Hour of the Star, where the life of Macab顬 a poor woman in Rio de Janeiro, is written called Rodrigo S.M, a fictional writer.
