Sobre o livro:

O presente quantity - exclusivo em edição electronic - é uma reunião de textos críticos de Cristovão Tezza, publicados em jornais, revistas e livros, de 1995 a 2013. Há resenhas mais breves, que saíram em jornais e revistas, como Folha de S.Paulo, Veja, O Estado de S.Paulo e O Globo; outras mais extensas, publicadas em cadernos literários; e ensaios de maior fôlego, como posfácios e conferências. O livro - que é prefaciado pelo crítico Manuel da Costa Pinto - inclui ainda duas palestras e uma crítica inéditas.

Esta coletânea registra a formação crítica de um escritor buscando partilhar por escrito o que pensa da literatura e pondo-se à prova diante de exemplos reais. Leitor onívoro, Cristovão Tezza faz uma viagem pessoal sobre obras clássicas e contemporâneas, numa lista que contempla, entre muitos outros, autores como Faulkner, Sartre, William Golding, Flannery O'Connor, Junichiro Tanizaki, J. M. Coetzee, John Berger e Michel Houellebecq. Dos mais de 20 títulos brasileiros comentados, incluem-se obras de Dalton Trevisan, Rubens Figueiredo, Marçal Aquino, Sergio Sant'Anna, Bernardo Ajzenberg, Carlos Heitor Cony e Rubem Fonseca.

No prefácio ("Xadrez em Curitiba"), o crítico Manuel da Costa Pinto assinala a capacidade de Cristovão Tezza "articular um universo incomensurável de leituras com uma vivência que, no seu caso, pode incluir desde o competente diletantismo num jogo de tabuleiro, ou o metódico senso analítico do relojoeiro que ele foi, até uma compreensão do “espírito da prosa” (título de sua autobiografia literária) que resulta da dupla condição de professor, de estudioso da língua, e de ficcionista que restaurou, no romance brasileiro, uma orientação crítica conquistada exatamente pela percepção de como as linguagens ficcionais e não-ficcionais estabelecem diferentes ancoragens no real."

Formas breves es una recopilación de textos misceláneos que el propio
autor describe como «páginas perdidas en el diario de un escritor». En
ellas reflexiona sobre los angeles literatura, desde l. a. ficción hasta el
pensamiento crítico; desde el diálogo con los autores que se han
convertido en los angeles estela de su obra e imaginario -Arlt, Macedonio,
Borges, Gombrowicz, Kafka, Chéjov, Joyce y Hemingway, entre otros- hasta
los temas más abstractos, como los angeles naturaleza del relato corto o el punto
de inflexión entre realidad y ficción. Este es un homenaje a la
literatura misma; un lugar donde se pone en juego su doble filo: una
ficción que se lee como una verdad apócrifa y un realismo que aparece
como un artificio veraz.

Sample text

A hunter can see a buffalo, smell, taste, and touch a buffalo when the buffalo is completely inert, even dead, but if he hears a buffalo, he had better watch out: something is going on. In this sense, all sound, and especially oral utterance, which comes from inside living organisms, is ‘dynamic’. The fact that oral peoples commonly and in all likelihood universally consider words to have magical potency is clearly tied in, at least unconsciously, with their sense of the word as necessarily spoken, sounded, and hence power-driven.

Writing fosters abstractions that disengage knowledge from the arena where human beings struggle with one another. It separates the knower from the known. By keeping knowledge embedded in the human lifeworld, orality situates knowledge within a context of struggle. Proverbs and riddles are not used simply to store knowledge but to engage others in verbal and intellectual combat: utterance of one proverb or riddle challenges hearers to top it with a more apposite or a contradictory one (Abrahams 1968; 1972).

Murko had recognized the absence of exact verbatim memory in oral poetry of such cultures. More importantly, Marcel Jousse, the Jesuit priest and scholar, who had been reared in a residually oral peasant milieu in France and who spent most of his adult life in the Middle East soaking up its oral culture, had sharply differentiated the oral composition in such cultures from all written composition. Jousse (1925) had styled oral cultures and the personality structures they produced verbomoteur (‘Verbomotor’—regrettably, Jousse’s work has not been translated into English; see Ong 1967b, pp.
