a lit bit about brazilian literature -  Machado de Assis

Joaquim Maria Machado de Assis - A black writer he was a pioneer Brazilian novelist, poet, playwright and short story writer, widely regarded as the greatest writer of Brazilian literature.  In 1897 he founded and became the first President of the Brazilian Academy of Letters. He was multilingual, having taught himself French, English, German and Greek in later life. 

his most famous books in brazil are The Posthumous Memoirs of Bras Cubas,  The Alienist, and  Dom Casmurro. 

‘Don Casmurro’ is a nickname, the meaning not quite the dictionary one for 'casmurro’ but rather: “the one the common people give it, of a quiet person who keeps to himself

Some phrases from his books

“To him the stars seemed like so many musical notes affixed to the sky, just waiting for somebody to unfasten them.”

“He felt that there is a loose balance of good and evil, and that the art of living consists in getting the greatest good out of the greatest evil.”

my favorite is the opening sentence of  The Posthumous Memoirs of Bras Cubas 

To the worm that first gnawed at the cold flesh of my corpse, I dedicate it with nostalgic memory these posthumous memories 

Fun fact about Dom Casmurro

Dom Casmurro inexorably moves from the light of first love to the darkening penumbra of jealousy and obsession. It abounds with echoes of "Othello.” Yet the story is far more subtle than it may seem at first. For generations Brazilian critics assumed that Capitu was guilty of adultery. 

There is a funny and heated discussion here in Brazil whether she cheated on him or not.

I was feeling very Racenclaw with Finals coming next week. It’s been a while since I posted a homework schedule. This isn’t really a homework schedule this is just the days it has to be uploaded in eLearn. I have daily homework todo lists that are very extensive, LoL.

Tell me if you guys would like to see more homework schedules, also am I the only one who uses both physical and digital planners? Let me know?


This is what the first half of my week tentatively looks like.


And the last half.

If your interested in the digital stickers I used here is the Etsy listing…. and the planner listing that I used!

Week 5, Day 5 - What is your favourite thing about your subject/major/degree?

Criminology is the subject that got me reinvested in education! It was so exciting and fresh. Now, I love it because it’s really good at breaking down stigmas surrounding offending behaviour.
