Librandi, Marília. Writing by Ear: Clarice Lispector and the Aural Novel. U of Toronto P, 2018.
Keywords: sound, aurality, Brazil, novel
AbstractWriting by Ear, despite its subtitle, is not merely a book about the presence of aurality in Clarice Lispector’s fiction. Marília Librandi’s book closely listens to Lispector’s fiction to find the resonances and reverberations of a mode of writing that informs a large part of Brazilian literature of the modern period. There is a “listening in writing,” the author argues, and she offers three interrelated concepts—“writing by ear,” “aural novel,” and “echopoetics”—to help the reader follow her auditory journey through Lispector’s life and writing.
