Sobre o livro:
A madona de cedro, segundo romance de Antonio Callado, publicado em 1957, foi passo decisivo na construção do universo ficcional do autor. Podem-se ver nele as bases da linguagem e do universo romanesco que seriam marca registrada de Callado, e que atingiriam seu auge em Quarup e Sempreviva. O romance é uma batalha psicológica dentro de Delfino, que precisa lidar com as implicações morais de seu ato: remorso, culpa, expiação. Sem perder o energy de um bom policial, o romance de Callado segue dinâmico. A volta de Adriano, a encarnação do príncipe das trevas, força Delfino a enfrentar de modo definitivo seu drama.

S. sovereignty, the scope of administrative activity, and the relationship between civil and military governance in the nation’s new colonial acquisitions. It might seem likely that such exacting questions would require exact answers, but while the imperial nation was given a clear image (at least on its surface) in the figure of the romantic hero, the imperial state, with its administrative and legal demands for precision, was ironically figured through tropes of ambivalence.

This “drill” concerns matters such as coffee, carriages, and hot water. While these novels included both realist and romantic modes, they also reinforced the critical commonplace that these modes were incongruous. . ”66 Realism and romance designated not just different worlds, but worlds that had nothing in common. This incongruity resulted in an episodic structure wherein the modes alternated and interrupted each other.
