Publicados pela primeira vez em 1974, os 13 contos que compõem A via crucis do corpo, de Clarice Lispector, são precedidos por uma explicação da autora. Ela diz que as histórias foram feitas sob encomenda e que, contrariando sua vontade inicial, aceitou a tarefa por puro impulso. Tentou assiná-lo com o pseudônimo Cláudio Lemos, mas acabou sucumbindo ao argumento de que deveria ter liberdade para escrever o que quisesse. E foi o que fez, num único fim de semana. Mas registrou: "Se há indecências nas histórias a culpa não é minha." A via crucis do corpo não tem nada de imoral; é, antes de tudo, uma fresta no cárcere social que mantém a mulher — condutora de todos os contos — supostamente distante de seus desejos e fantasias. Ou dos fardos, como a virgindade. O que Clarice fez foi apenas descrever, de forma leve e bem-humorada, algumas dessas benditas transgressões. Mas como em toda a sua obra, a autora abre espaço para falar dos sentimentos mais profundos e das sinceras idiossincrasias da alma. Em "O homem que apareceu", ela se depara com Cláudio Brito, um grande poeta transformado em lixo humano, e relativiza o fracasso: "Mas quem pode dizer com sinceridade que se realizou na vida? O sucesso é uma mentira." Na abertura de "Por enquanto", Clarice chega a ser cruel: "Como ele não tinha nada a fazer, foi fazer pipi. E depois ficou a zero mesmo." Ato contínuo, alerta que a vida tem dessas coisas, de vez em quando não sobra nada dentro da gente. Mas é bom prestar atenção porque isso só acontece enquanto se vive. A via crucis do corpo, como os demais títulos de Clarice Lispector relançados pela Rocco, recebeu novo tratamento gráfico e passou por rigorosa revisão de texto, feita pela especialista em crítica textual Marlene Gomes Mendes, baseada em sua primeira edição.

Clarice Lispector e a encenação da escritura: em "A via crucis do corpo"

O interesse da autora em relação ao livro A via crucis do corpo, de Clarice Lispector, lançado em 1974, deve-se, num primeiro momento, ao fato de o mesmo ter sido considerado uma "obra menor", um "desvio" ou, até mesmo, um "lixo", quando comparado às demais publicações da autora, por ter sido escrito "por encomenda", "às pressas", num período em que a escritora passava por dificuldades financeiras. Buscando suscitar elementos que permitam a (re)avaliação dessa visão, Nilze Reguera apresenta uma leitura da obra sob a perspectiva da encenação, considerando como a simulação ("parecer" e "não-ser") e a dissimulação ("não-parecer" e "ser") se entrelaçam no texto.

From a bestselling author with unprecedented access to Pope Francis, an investigative look at the recent financial scandals at the highest levels of the Vatican A veritable war is waging in the Church: on one side, there is Pope Francis’s strong message for one church of the poor and all; on the other, there is the old Curia with its endless enemies, and the old and new lobbies struggling to preserve their not-so-Christian privileges. The old guard do not back down, they are ready to use all means necessary to stay in control and continue the immoral way they conduct their business. They resist reforms sought by Pope Francis and seek to delegitimize their opponents, to isolate those who want to eliminate corruption. It’s a war that will determine the future of the church. And if he loses the battle against secular interests and blackmail, Pope Francis could resign, much like his predecessor. Based on confidential information—including top secret documents from inside the Vatican, and actual transcripts of Pope Francis’s admonishments to the papal court about the lack of financial oversight and responsibility—Merchants in the Temple illustrates all the undercover work conducted by the Pope since his election and shows the reader who his real enemies are. It reveals the instruments Francis is using to reform the Vatican and rid it, once and for all, of the overwhelming corruption traditionally encrusted in the Roman Catholic Church. Merchants in the Temple is a startling book that will shock every reader. It’s a story worthy of a Dan Brown novel, with its electrifying details of the trickery and scheming against the papacy—except that it is real.

Lispector’s most shocking novel. The Passion According to G.H., Clarice Lispector’s mystical novel of 1964, concerns a well-to-do Rio sculptress, G.H., who enters her maid’s room, sees a cockroach crawling out of the wardrobe, and, panicking, slams the door —crushing the cockroach —and then watches it die. At the end of the novel, at the height of a spiritual crisis, comes the most famous and most genuinely shocking scene in Brazilian literature… Lispector wrote that of all her works this novel was the one that “best corresponded to her demands as a writer.”
