edit Biography
Amado was born in a fazenda ("farm") in the inland of the city of Itabuna , in the southern part of the Brazilian state of Bahia, son of Jo£o Amado de Faria and D. Eul¡lia Leal. The farm Amado was born in was precisely located on the village of Ferradas, which though today is a district of Itabuna, at the time was administered by the town of Ilh©us. That is why he considered himself a citizen of Ilh©us. In the large cocoa plantation, Amado knew the misery and the struggles of the people working the earth, living in almost slave conditions, which were to be a theme always present in his later works (for example, the notable Terras do Sem Fim of When he was only one year old the family moved to Ilh©us , a coastal city, where he spent his childhood.

I realize this probably isn't a library issue specifically. But basically when I am in the library working on my laptop and I need to print something and ALL the computers in the ILC are in use, it would be nice to print straight from my laptop... :) My previous school allowed this...and we were on a wireless connection too..but they used a different printing software called PrintWise. I just give this for reference...obviously the school isn't going to switch to this other software but maybe someone smart can figure out a way to let people print wirelessly from their laptops.

The Violent Land (1942, tr. 1945), are marked by grim and violent realism. His later works, such as Gabriela, Clove and Cinnamon (1958, tr. 1962), (1966, tr. 1969), Tent of Miracles (1969, tr. 1971), and Tieta, the Goat Girl (1977, tr. 1979), frequently have a comic element and stress folkloric and popular themes related to Afro-Brazilian culture. Alive with vibrant characters, his novels often reflect his left-wing political views and his deep sympathy for women. Although sometimes criticized for stereotyped female characterizations and for romanticizing poverty, Amado is acclaimed for his portrayal of ordinary Brazilians and is the most widely read Brazilian novelist of the 20th cent. and among the most translated novelists in the world. His later fiction (he wrote 32 books in all) includes Pen, Sword, Camisole

Survey of Latin-American Culture Through Literature
Yoselin Roman
Contents of Curriculum Unit 97.01.08:
To Guide Entry
The purpose of this unit is to help students gain a clear understanding of the Latin American heritage and cultural milieu. The selected materials deal with past and current attitudes and perceptions prevalent in some parts of Latin America. In order for students to really understand, appreciate, and possibly identify with the dilemmas posed in the literature, it is necessary for them to acquire an understanding of the dynamics of how and why, Latin American society and culture actually functions in different situations. In order to reach this goal, students will read literary works and view films dealing with, but not limited to the following cultural issues: The role of women, cultural gender expectations, political structure, and the role of religion. Existing customs, as well as myths, will also be explored in terms of their effects on socialization and acculturation.
It is not easy to comprehend the complex role religion plays within Latin American culture. It is not an issue of God or Christianity, but an intricate synchronization of the beliefs of different cultures and races that have been present at one point or another in the history of Latin America. Although there have been many different influences the most prevalent has been the European Tradition, consisting of the Catholic and Protestant Faith. The native Indian influences, of the Aztecs, Incas, and Mayans from Central and South America as well as the Arawak and Tainos of the Antilles with their polytheistic views and last but not least, the African influences of the Yoruba and Congo Tribes, brought to Latin America from Africa centuries ago.

"Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands"
(Reviewed by Judi Clark FEB 10, 1998) Here's a twist for me, I saw the video of Dona Flor before I ever heard of this author or read this book. I got a big kick out of it, even though it seemed on the low tech side of filmmaking. Naturally when I later discovered this writer (through Shepherds of the Night ) I was more impressed with the book than the movie. (Like who's surprised by that?)

Jorge Amado
Avô, mesmo que a gente morra, é melhor morrer de repetição na mão, brigando com o coronel, que morrer em cima da terra, debaixo de relho, sem reagir. Mesmo que seja pra morrer nós deve dividir essas terras, tomar elas para gente. Mesmo que seja um dia só que a gente tenha elas, paga a pena de morrer". (Os Subterrâneos da Liberdade - Agonia da Noite)
Filho de João Amado de Faria e de D. Eulália Leal, Jorge Amado de Faria nasceu no dia 10 de agosto de 1912, na fazenda Auricídia, em Ferradas, distrito de Itabuna - Bahia. O casal teve mais três filhos: Jofre (1915), Joelson (1920) e James (1922).
Com apenas dez meses, vê seu pai ser ferido numa tocaia dentro de sua própria fazenda. No ano seguinte uma epidemia de varíola obriga a família a deixar a fazenda e se estabelecer em Ilhéus. Em 1917 a família muda-se para a Fazenda Taranga, em Itajuípe, onde seu pai volta à lida na lavoura de cacau. Em 1918, já alfabetizado por sua mãe
