Writings: Papers, Reviews, Articles, Short-Shorts, Thoughts is a collection of texts about contemporary trends in literature and film that the author has written over the years. “If I had to sum up the book, I would say it is about art.”----The journey starts with an analysis of the monster Leviathan and its representation in the Bible and in the secular world. Two movie reviews are then presented: “Eyes Wide Open” and “De Lama Lamina.”----There is an essay on Hemingway’s “Hills Like White Elephants”; a paper on “Autopoiesis and Queer Theory”; and three more movie reviews of “Little Miss Sunshine,” “Far From Heaven” and “The Scarlet Letter” by Wim Wenders.----To close the book, the author includes a paper on “The Silence of the Lambs” by Thomas Harris; an answer to Joyce Carol Oates’ “The Art of Suicide”; an article on short-short story; one more movie review of “Silver Linings Playbook”; a review on Elton John’s concert in Belo Horizonte and two short-short stories.
