Recent Comments "The Letters of a Portuguese Nun"

If Christina Rossetti spoke metaphors in her highly erotic poem "Goblin Market," the Portuguese nun here, Mariana Alcoforado, wrote from her own direct, heartbreaking experience of tasting the sweet fruits and juices of a goblin man (a French officer), then being deserted by him, then pining endlessly for him. And if Christina Rossetti was a horny, god-fearing English spinster, Mariana Alcoforado was a horny, god-gearing Portuguese nun. But both were great writers. "Goblin Market" made Rossetti [...]

I have a few points of confusion with this very brief book, ideas that might make this entire review confusing.#1 - Did nuns get married in the 1600s? If not, then how did she fall in love with someone? What happened to getting married to God, etc? What kind of nun is she? And the translator uses the word nun, not "wealthy woman living in a nunnery."#2 - Should we be lauding the foolishness of this woman's love? I tried to read it as love letters but all I see is the normal country song of being [...]

Na realidade já as tinha lido anteriormente, mas não sei se tinha lido todas e com o espírito com que as li agora. Estava em Beja, com as minhas duas irmãs, e senti necessidade de as ligar àquela cidade tanto quanto lhe sou ligada. Aproveitei as tecnologias para baixá-las da internet e ler-lhas, visto que no dia seguinte iríamos ao Convento da Conceição ver a janela que, afinal, não está no local original. Apenas os ferros são os mesmos.Os franceses reinvindicam a autoria destas cart [...]

A classic that I had not had the chance to study for my schooling. These letters are beautiful and passionate. This nun surrenders herself frankly and gives us her doubts, her hopes, her tenderness and despair.

Após algumas referências que de certo modo lhes atribuíram relevo na minha visão da literatura portuguesa, li por fim as cinco cartas de (des)amor de uma freira portuguesa a um oficial francês por quem se apaixonou intensamente. Independentemente das discussões sobre a atribuição das cartas, a sua beleza é inegável, bem como (e principalmente) o modo como os sentimentos de Mariana Alcoforado nos chegam tão vivos através da poeira dos séculos, quando ficou abandonada num convento em [...]

The overriding thought I had while reading this was, "Hey! chick! get a grip!"As she writes in the final line of her final letter to her abandoning paramour about their bad breakup: "Am I under any obligation to render you an exact account of all my varied emotions?" I wanna reply "Please don't!" Especially when you do it with all the emotional stability of a seismograph during the explosion of Krakatoa.But then I reflect have I not gone through at least one episode which is eerily similar to th [...]

Sanki 4 yüzyıl önce yazılamamışcasına, aşık kadının hisleri, çalkalanmaları, bir anda nefret kusup sonra bundan pişmanlığı, aşkının karşısındaki ilgisizlikten çılgına dönmeleri. hiç eski gelmediler."yolculuk yapma özgürlüğüne sahip, dinamik, işi gücü olan erkekle, konulduğu, hatta kapatıldıgı yerde, tutsak, işsiz güçsüz, tek yaşama nedeni erkeği duyduğu aşk olan kadın arasındaki eşitlikten uzak ilişki"

Uma escritura da dor.

At work I've been going through the main library and looking at all the pre-1830 books to decide if they should be moved over to Special Collections. One of the books on my list was this one. It is fascinating; it's the first ever epistolary fiction to turn up in France at the end of the 17th century. It was claimed to be translated from the Portuguese by a French editor who "lost" the original letters. It is now commonly believed that he made it up, but I'm not so sure. This edition is a transl [...]

Este livro foi me oferecido por alguém que sabe o quanto eu detestei o "livro" Mariana, Meu Amor da "escritora" Margarida Rebelo Pinto. Tenho que admitir que nunca tinha lido as cartas da Soror Mariana Alcoforado, embora estivesse bastante familiarizada com a sua história. Depois de ter lido as composições escritas desta freira, que foi forçada a entrar num convento pelo pai e em muito tenra idade, ainda a admiro mais. São composições de uma beleza indescritivel e é indiscutivelmente um [...]

“[…] you gave me evidence of a great passion for me. I was overjoyed at it, and I gave myself up to love you to distraction. You were not blinded as I was. Why then did you let me fall into the state in which I now am?”The text was very hard to read at the beginning. The "f"s that were really "s"s confused me 98% of the time.However, I immediately felt for Marianna and her plight. I was not annoyed or exasperated by her mad attachment to her unworthy lover. I believe she was a victim of lo [...]

On revient toujours aux Lettres portugaises, parce que c'est une lecture épistolaire et rapide, et parce qu'elle nous donne notre quota de littérature amoureuse quand on est occupés par des livres trop sérieux. Lors des premières lectures, j'étais fascinée par l'aspect mystification littéraire, et par l'audace des métaphores érotiques dans un livre qui, somme toute, a été rédigé au XVIIème siècle, et est sensé impliquer une religieuse. (C'est fou, d'ailleurs, ce fantasme littér [...]

Eu tenho uma versão de trinta e uma páginas, da Europa América, mas como não havia essa versão aquicolhi esta! Gostei do livro. É uma compilação de cinco cartas escritas pela autora para o seu amado. É interessante.

J'ai trouvé intéressant et troublant au même temps que romantique car on peu comprendre le sentiment qu'inspire l'abandon et la tristesse de n'avoir pas réponse de notre amoureux, mais je vois qu'il y a de gens que ne seraient pas ému pour ça… alors je recommande au romantiques perdus strictement.

"Não sei eu por experiência que um coração enternecido nunca mais esquece quem lhe revelou prazeres que não conhecia, e de que era suscetível?, que todos os seus impulsos estão ligados ao ídolo que criou? que os seus primeiros pensamentos e primeiras feridas não podem curar-se nem apagar-se?"

Oare cum e să iubeşti?

Έχει γίνει άπειρη συζήτηση ανά τους αιώνες γι’ αυτές τις ερωτικές επιστολές. Το μεγαλύτερο θέμα συζήτησης είναι το πρόσωπο που τις έγραψε. Ήταν όντως γυναίκα και δη μοναχή, η “Μαριάννα” που αναφέρεται μέσα σ’ αυτές ή γράφτηκαν από άντρα συγγραφέα ο οποίος ήθελε να διατηρ [...]

"Pourquoi m'avez-vous fait connaître l'imperfection et le désagrément d'un attachement qui ne doit pas durer éternellement, et les malheurs qui suivent un amour violent, lorsqu'il n'est pas réciproque, et pourquoi une inclination aveugle et une cruelle destinée s'attachent-elles, d'ordinaire, à nous déterminer pour ceux qui seraient sensibles pour quelque autre?"Tragédie universelle de la femme amoureuse quittée qui éprouve le besoin obsessionnel de comprendre et d'exprimer les mouvem [...]

Un buen libro, de lectura rápida porque es breve pero también porque provoca leerlo hasta el final una vez que se ha comenzado a leer. Esta edición en concreto sin duda hace que el libro sea mejor pues cuenta con un epílogo nada menos que de Rainer Maria Rilke y unas pocas pero excelentes ilustraciones nada menos que de Milo Manara. Recomendable.

En el amor no hay reglas. O para ser exactos, no hay modo de hacer que se ajuste a reglas. Es por eso que, enamorados, es el momento en que somos más vulnerables. Más humanos. No por nada, en cualquier otra interacción social podemos establecer reglas. Jerarquías. Amigos, jefes, subordinados, padres, hijos; todos siguen un patrón, más o menos explícito, de quién está al mando. Pero en el amor las expectativas sobre lo que implica siempre cambian de persona a persona. Eso es lo que mejor [...]

My impressions here, carmenyamigos/

En raison de mes cours de Lettres Modernes, j’ai dû lire ce livre puisque je vais l’étudier, étant donné que c’est un très petit livre, je l’ai lu rapidement pour m’en débarrasser, bien que je sais d’avance qu’il faudra certainement que je le relise plusieurs fois afin de mieux l’étudier. Néanmoins, une lecture s’imposait puisque la première et dernière fois que je l’ai lu, date de 6 ans, donc il est évident que j’ai oublié ce texte (vite lu, et vite oublié ég [...]

The romance between Mariana Alcoforado, a Portuguese nun, and Nöel Bouton de Chamilly, an officer of the French Army, took place in the mid-17th century. Chamilly abandoned Mariana in 1667, after which they exchanged a series of letters. The Portuguese originals were never recovered, but a French translation was published by a Count of Guillerages and became an instant bestseller, much in the way that The Sorrows of Young Werther would a century later.There has been much controversy about the a [...]

De wetenschap heeft aan het licht gebracht, dat dit geen brieven van een Portugese non zijn, maar een werk van fictie van een Frans edelman, genaamd Gabriel Joseph de Lavergne graaf van Guilleragues. Dat ontneemt het brievenboekje de oorspronkelijk gevoelde teint van 'document humaine'. Dat ontneemt de uitgave niet de historische waarde.Voor mij als eenentwintigste-eeuwse lezer is het een uitgaaf, waarvan ik het belang inzie en daarom heb ik het met zekere interesse gelezen. Maar om te zeggen da [...]

Não há muito que possa dizer sobre este livro que nem se sabe, de verdade, se é real ou ficcional. Eu gosto de pensar que é real.As cartas são muito dramáticas e fatalistas. A protagonista é um pouco irritante, se bem que à sua maneira é realista (daí que eu acredite que sejam relatos verdadeiros), visto que muitas mulheres amam assim. E homens, claro, há-os com este nível de obsessão, de persistência, de amor.O que achei que faltou foi 'pano de fundo', ou seja, gostava de saber co [...]

Publicado originalmente en francés en 1669, el libro compila cinco cartas escritas supuestamente por Mariana Alcoforado, una monja portuguesa del convento de Beja, y dirigidas a un oficial francés, Noel Bouton de Chamily, su antiguo amante. El verdadero autor de la obra, Gabriel-Joseph de Lavergne, vizconde de Guilleragues explora el imaginario amoroso transitando carta a carta el camino que separa el arrobamiento de la pasión no correspondida hasta el rencor por el rechazo. En su última car [...]

This was an interesting read. I just happened to pass by it in the store and grabbed it because, well, I'm Portuguese, (Azores, not Brazil). It's nonfiction and based on letters written to a military man, from a Portuguese nun. The love affair lasted briefly but this nun was so in love with him that she literally perished from it. During the time period, nunneries also served primarily as houses of "entertainment" for soldiers. He asks for a transferral and leaves her, with never a word again. S [...]

Brief and desperate. Written with the style of those times: passionate, over the top. In fact these letters wouldn't be anything extraordinary if they haven't been written (presumibly) by a nun: style is quite common, not an outstanding vocabulay or language knowledge, not even good images or metaphores. Lots of passion, though, but a little bit over the top; sometimes it makes you feel that Mariana needed a psychiatrist more than a lover. It might well be because five letters are not enough to [...]

Yaraları kaşıyan şeylerden uzak durmaya çalışırım. Altı üstü 30 sayfa. İnsan 10 saate yayar mı bu kadarcık şeyi İfadesiz bir doktorun hastasını dinlediği gibi okudum. Öyle olmak zorundaydım. Suratım asık kalırsa kabuklarım kalkmayacakmış gibi. "Sizi hep sevmeme katlanabilseydiniz ne mutlu olacaktım!" Burada deli kahkası attım. Kafayı yerken atılandan. Sonra birden durdum. Tek bir noktaya bakakaldım. Bir an, sadece bir an, canlandı sadece, gördüm. Yeniden yaş [...]

historia de amor polémica en su momento por la supuesta identidad de la escritora y el carácter autobiográfico de la obra. con el tiempo se descubre personaje (el autor es un hombre)descubrí el libro en mi vida sin mí y el guiño que plantea isabel coixet es la trama amorosa, paralela a la que se plantea en la película
