A Bolsa Amarela – Lygia Bojunga Nunes – Cap.2
The author is a critic of the Brazilian school system; in fact, Nunes was concerned enough about illiteracy that she co-founded a school for rural children to help them better their education.
Her titles have also focused on topics such as women’s rights, poverty, and the desire for freedom and democracy. When Nunes began writing, her country’s government was in turmoil; from untilthere were no democratic elections held in Brazil, and in that time, there were military coups and dictators running the country. Nunes turned to children’s books for her social commentary because, as she explained, “Generals don’t read children’s books.
On the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award Web site, a biographer noted that Nunes “constantly offsets the serious with playfulness and absurd humor. Nunes’s work is also noted for its use of magical realism.
Like many Brazilian writers, she does not establish a boundary between the fantastic and the realistic. And fighting cocks may have their brains sewed together so they can only think of fighting, which also occurs in A bolsa amarela. Nunes also uses symbolism that nearly crosses the boundaries into the fantastic: Os colegas, or The Companions, was Nunes’s first novel.
In the book, a young rabbit is abandoned by his family and left to fend for himself. He befriends a bear who has escaped from the zoo and a pampered dog who ran away from home to be free.
When the rabbit’s two friends are bolda, the frightened rabbit rescues the dog, who joins him to rescue the bear. On the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award Web site, Mats Berggren stated that Nunes presents “a wide-ranging view of the contrasts between oppression and freedom” at a level that young readers can understand.
O meu amigo pintor, or My Friend the Painter, is aimed at older elementary and middle-grade readers.
In the book young Claudio must cope with the suicide of his adult friend, a painter who encouraged the boy’s interest in art. The story is told in a realistic fashion, though Claudio’s dreams are an important part of the grieving process.
Berggren commented that Claudio comes to understand that he “needs to think of [the painter] … in his entirety, with all the amarrla in order to begin to comprehend his questions about the painter’s boolsa.
According to some critics, Nunes’s treatment of her subject is emotionally intense, while other reviewers found My Friend the Painter too abstract lyhia subtle for young readers.
A Kirkus Reviews critic praised the book as “a rich, poetic glimpse of universal feelings filtered through an unfamiliar culture,” while in Publishers Weekly a reviewer ltgia the writing as exhibiting “remarkable, sustained intensity. The main amraela pig, a stork, an elephant, and a crocodile—put on a play to show how people in power are able to make lies become popular thought. Throughout the course of the play, these characters defy the stereotypes other animals have against them and learn that by working together they can improve their own lives.
In other books the author uses short-story and episodic forms, such as in Tchau and Seis vezes Lucas. In the latter, Nunes illuminates six moments in Lucas’s life, showing his fears of not living up to his s expectations. In both Tchau and Seis vezes Lucas the author confronts the issue of marital infidelity through the eyes of a child hurt by the occurrence.
Retratos de Carolina, like Seis vezes Lucas, focuses on moments in Carolina’s life, from the time she is six years old until she is aged twenty-nine, at which point she encounters Nunes and asks the author to write her a happy ending. Nunes once told Something about the Author: But it was a love of reading, not doing.
My affair took me by surprise because it was so overwhelming, so much a part of me, that before I realized what was happening, I’d been taken over entirely by literature.
