Sobre o livro:

A madona de cedro, segundo romance de Antonio Callado, publicado em 1957, foi passo decisivo na construção do universo ficcional do autor. Podem-se ver nele as bases da linguagem e do universo romanesco que seriam marca registrada de Callado, e que atingiriam seu auge em Quarup e Sempreviva. O romance é uma batalha psicológica dentro de Delfino, que precisa lidar com as implicações morais de seu ato: remorso, culpa, expiação. Sem perder o energy de um bom policial, o romance de Callado segue dinâmico. A volta de Adriano, a encarnação do príncipe das trevas, força Delfino a enfrentar de modo definitivo seu drama.

In France among 1641 and 1782 the romance built into the radical. Mr. Showalter's in depth examine of the radical, quite in the course of the severe interval 1700-1720, indicates that a tremendous flow towards 19th century realism was once happening. to track this improvement the writer has chosen 5 phenomena—time, house, names, funds, and the narrator—and follows their therapy in the course of the interval to teach why romance tended towards the radical.

Sample text

Akiva expounds this literally, as referring to a special reality, while R. Yishmael, in contrast, argues that 'the Tora spoke in the language of man'. It should be stressed that the expression 'the Tora spoke in the language of man' appears in Tannaic and Amoraic sources only in relation to the rejection of midrashim based on verb-infinitive repetition and on the repetition of the biblical phrase W X B P S at the beginning of a topic. 'The language of man' in this source is not the Mishnaic language com­ mon in the Tannaic period, since it completely lacks the mode of emphasis employing verbinfinitive repetition or inclusionary repetition, such as wx wx.

R. Akiva says, Every occurrence of "ins? (saying) must be expounded. 80 1 81 This apparently indicates that the school of R. Yishmael maintained that expo­ sitions are not to be founded on repetition of similar verses in two passages. The problem with this is that on occasion the Halakhic Midrashim of R.

Here and there the Halakhic Midrashim cite a different version that accords with the Septuagint, the Samaritan Tora, or the Peshitta. We also find midrashim based on a non-Massoretic version that prove this was the consensual biblical text possessed by the Tannaim-exegetes. An awareness of the phenomenon is of importance both for an examination of the textual versions of the Bible and for a proper understanding of the midrash itself.
