Clarice, she

“Clarice, She” is an electronic book composed of readings of five stories from Family Ties. Written by the critic Roberto Corrêa dos Santos, it holds the distinction of having been the first study on the Brazilian writer published in the academic field, in 1976, as a master’s thesis approved by the Department of Language Arts at the Pontifical Catholic University-Rio de Janeiro. From the analysis of the short stories “Preciousness”, “The Imitation of the Rose”, “The Crime of the Mathematics Teacher”, “The Dinner” and “Happy Birthday”, the author endeavors to draw a malleable profile of Clarice’s mode of thinking and writing, distinguishing them from a “direction of the gaze of writing”: feminine, masculine and familiar.
