Meet the Muse of Group .BR’s Inside the Wild Heart
Regarded as Brazil’s Kafka, Clarice Lispector’s disturbing yet brilliant stories provokes spiritual feelings in all her readers. Both Jewish, however, one male and one female exemplify literary greatness. Nonetheless, Clarice’s struggled in a society that belittled women and that is what differentiates her from other writers. That, and the mysterious mysticality of her writing. She is considered Brazil’s biggest female writer and with or without success, with happiness or lack thereof, Clarice wrote until the day she died. In February 1977, in the only TV interview she gave, she said, “I think that when I’m not writing I’m dead”. Her intimate connection with writing is not only fascinating, but humbling, considering that she deemed herself as “not a professional”.
