About the publication (in Portuguese):

O que impulsiona os personagens é a seca, áspera e merciless, e paradoxalmente a ligação telúrica, afetiva, que expõe naqueles seres em retirada, à procura de meios de sobrevivência e um futuro. Apesar desse sentimento de transbordante solidariedade e compaixão com que a narrativa acompanha a miúda saga do vaqueiro Fabiano e sua gente, o autor contou: "Procurei auscultar a alma do ser impolite e quase primitivo que mora na zona mais recuada do sertão... os meus personagens são quase selvagens... pesquisa que os escritores regionalistas não fazem e nem mesmo podem fazer ...porque comumente não são familiares com o ambiente que descrevem...Fiz o livrinho sem paisagens, sem diálogos. E sem amor. A minha gente, quase muda, vive numa casa velha de fazenda. As pessoas adultas, preocupadas com o estômago, não tem pace de abraçar-se. Até a cachorra [Baleia] é uma criatura decente, porque na vizinhança não existem galãs caninos". VIDAS SECAS é o livro em que Graciliano, visto como antipoético e anti-sonhador por excelência, consegue atingir, com o rigor do texto que tanto prezava, um estado maior de poesia.

By Gustave Flaubert

Variation enrichie de Thierry Laget comportant une préface et un file sur le roman.

C'est l'histoire d'une femme mal mariée, de son médiocre époux, de ses amants égoïstes et vains, de ses rêves, de ses chimères, de sa mort. C'est l'histoire d'une province étroite, dévote et bourgeoise. C'est, aussi, l'histoire du roman français. Rien, dans ce tableau, n'avait de quoi choquer los angeles société du moment Empire. Mais, inexorable comme une tragédie, flamboyant comme un drame, mordant comme une comédie, le livre s'était donné une arme redoutable : le type. Pour ce vrai crime, Flaubert se retrouva en correctionnelle.

Aucun roman n'est blameless : celui-là moins qu'un autre. Lire Madame Bovary, au XXIe siècle, c'est affronter le scandale que représente une œuvre aussi sincère qu'impérieuse. Dans chacune de ses words, Flaubert a versé une dose de cet arsenic dont Emma Bovary s'empoisonne : c'est un livre offensif, corrosif, dont l'ironie outrage toutes nos valeurs, et los angeles littérature même, qui ne s'en est jamais vraiment remise.

Se cree que Esquilo escribió los angeles tragedia Prometeo encadenado como parte de una trilogía probablemente seguida de las obras perdidas Prometeo liberado y Prometeo portador del fuego. Las tres hubieran dado cuenta de los angeles historia de Prometeo, castigado por los dioses, acusado de haber robado el fuego del Olimpo y de haberlo entregado a los humanos. Esta obra relata los acontecimientos inmediatamente posteriores a los del mito, en los que el titán encadenado profetiza el derrocamiento de Zeus como rey de todos los dioses. Esquilo hace una exquisita muestra de los temas más característicos de l. a. tragedia griega y de su propia obra: el ineludible destino y el sufrimiento existencial.

El helenista y escritor Ramón Irigoyen ha preparado para esta edición un prólogo que acompaña a su traducción de los angeles obra. Además, Jordi Balló y Xavier Pérez, profesores de comunicación audiovisual en l. a. Universidad Pompeu Fabra, han escrito a cuatro manos el epílogo con el que se cierra este volumen.
