The Besieged City


-
Add to Calendar Europe/Paris The Besieged City

Lucr?cia Neves is vain, unreflective, insolently superficial, almost mute. She may have no inner life at all. As she morphs from small-town girl to worldly wife of a rich man, and her small home town surrenders to the forces of progress, Lucr?cia seeks perfection: to be an object, serene, smooth, beyond the burden of words or even thought itself. A book that obsessed its author, ‘The Besieged City’ is unlike any other work in Lispector’s canon: a story of transformation, of what it means to see and to be seen.
