The hour of the star

    For this Discussion Board activity, please use the instructional video on modern Brazilian history and literature as a platform for assessing Lispector’s novella The Hour of the Star. Respond to my questions on the thread in a post of 100-125 words:

    1) What did you learn in the instructional video that helped you tackle the experimental structure and social themes of the novella?

    2) Clarice Lispector described The Hour of the Star as a book “made without words…a mute photograph…a silence…a question.” Using evidence from the novella, explore ways in which you see Lispector’s assessment of her work reflected in the text itself.
