Em seu novo romance, O PUNHO E A RENDA — que já vem sendo considerado uma obra-prima da ficção política e seu mais importante trabalho —, Edgar Telles Ribeiro, escritor e diplomata, mergulha nos bastidores das embaixadas, revelando suas tensões e disputas. Não se trata, porém, do rendilhado charmoso da vida social das rodas diplomáticas — Edgard abre, pela primeira vez no Brasil, uma caixa preta: tendo como tema a ditadura brasileira e as formas de opressão que o sistema gerou no período do regime militar (1964-1985), a obra revela os subterrâneos sinistros da Operação Condor e lida com os grupos de direita que atuaram dentro do Itamaraty nessa época. Aborda complôs para derrubar governos, cumplicidades com torturas, a sede de subir na carreira.

Sample text

But Ita­ lian can justly claim superiority over the others, not so much for the relative merit of being close to Latin at least in having si for sic, or for the still very grave (but, we could interject, undemonstrable) consideration of its close­ ness to the patterns of a rational philosophical grammar (gramatica comunis — De v. e. ). This epithet of subtilis must be added to dulcis as a conclusive designation DANTE AND THE ARS GRAMMATICA 39 of the novelty and value of the Stilnuovo, in Dante's mind.

Finds that Dante aimed at a vulgare illustre that would combine universalitas and naturalitas, as the Adamitic language had once done, but Latin was no longer doing. I feel rather inclined to believe that the "universality" of Italian could only be, if anything, a vague and relative notion, quite remote from the rigor implied in modistic speculation. Precisely in the use of technical terms that seem to derive from the "radical" or Averroistic Aristotelianism of Boethius of Dacia and Siger of Brabant one can see the distance which effectively separates Dante from DANTE AND THE ARS GRAMMATICA 37 them.

It was to be, he realized, an act of poetry, but a kind of poetic work never seen before, for which he would have to 28 ALDO SCAGLIONE invent the language, the metrical form, the genre, and much of the cultural background. For that there was need of a new grammar, a grammar of a language never seen, not a given style, a dialect, or Latin, and not even the volgare illustre. The Aeneid could, and did, give him an inspiration through the dynamic moral allegory of Aeneas's journey through life and, in Book 6, the underworld.
