Aphorisms of João Guimarães Rosa

The following link goes to my contribution to a contest ran by A Missing Book: On The Devil To Pay In The Backlands, or Grande Sertão: Veredas. It's about some great quotes from the Brazilian novel.



  1. Rise, congratulations on winning the contest! In a funny coincidence, I finally bought João Guimarães Rosa's book yesterday in a Spanish translation executed by Ángel Crespo: it's called Gran Sertón: Veredas (Alianza Editorial, Madrid, 1999). Hope to get to it next month but it will more likely be November. Cheers!

  2. Gracias, Richard. It was said that the book's translations in other languages (French, German, Spanish, Italian) are superior to the English one. You may be in for a treat.
