POEMA DEITADO NO SEU PEITO Um jogo de amarelinha

A.C.I.MA. – Edizioni Mandala, pursues the objective of connecting “Minds & Cultures”, it aims to offer a specialized editorial space; promoting and valuing the Lusophone and Brazilian contemporary literature, with special attention to women’s literature and society multiethnic.

The book brings together poem and prose, whose language, imagery, moves itself among the mists of a symbolism as well as the simplicity of everyday life, pointing in the interlines singularities in poetic concept. A lush lyricism impregnated with a loving feeling remains in the weft of time, sometimes biting or bordering the fantastic. The passion for cinema follows the movement of the eye behind his camera, through the words, such as a mirror. It is a continuous source of inspiration, contrasting with the harshness of fatuity not yet transformed into fiction, however, throws us into the abyss, the enchantment of its complexity and conflicting emotions. The subtitle was inspired in the almost namesake romance by Julio Cortázar, “Game of Hopscotch”, basically, and with no obligation, because of its poetic weft, its nostalgic and tender narrative, the blossoming of youth in which the passion is the axis of the world.

VIVER EM UM POEMA

A POÉTICA DAS EMOÇÕES Poetry. Is it just poetry? I poured myself off in verses. I learned the path of humanization. I discovered myself whole, a woman who, with conflicts, had feelings, loved, was an ordinary person. I found out that poetry resists and transcends boundaries; it creates what does not exist, it generates colour, in reality sometimes grey, my life held true for me. I grew up in these sonnets of dawns and restarts.

CARLA D E SÀ MORAIS DE GAVETA EM GAVETA

Carla Gossuin-Azevedo was born in Angola in 1961, where she lived until she was 12 years old. If Portugal was her country of refuge, Switzerland became her country of adoption, and it has been where she has resided for more than 20 years. She had always had a fascination for books. Reading and writing have always had a very important place in her life. At 17, she began to write short texts and poetry. Her arrival in Switzerland placed her literary side inside brackets, since she gave priority to work and to the education of her daughter, who currently is a young independent woman, which allows her mom to have more time to devote herself to her passion: writing. Carla has texts published in several national and international anthologies and has received numerous recognitions for her literary production. She signs her works under the pseudonym of: Carla De Sà Morais.

CARLA D E SÀ MORAIS

Carla De Sà Morais’ second book of poems brings in the originality of the title (From Drawer to Drawer) a metaphor through writing poetry itself. Words from the Author: “Life is like old and used drawers or new and modern ones decorating spaces, well evident or hidden in corners or attics. Existential drawers keep memories, hopes, secrets, despairs and even frustrations. They are synonymous with order, tidiness... or disorder, when everything it contains is part of lived moments whose emotions asphyxiated the heart.”

SER DIFERENTE “Ser Diferente” is a collection of 20 poems that moves with ease between the colloquial and formal, the popular and the erudite, sharing intimate and universal feelings. This work is the result of the award from the International Competition “Celebração 10 Anos Poemas À Flor da Pele”.

SHARP SWEET TALK This is a book of chronicles, tales, essays and articles of this author, Dyandreia Valverde Portugal, a woman with a fascinating and endless creative spirit, who speaks and writes what she thinks, in a powerful, compelling, passionate, smart, funny, sentimental and extremely realistic way. Evading from a silly and banal chat, her sweet talk is, however, unpretentious, because the work shows, from its title, that there will also be a sharp talk, as sharp as the tip of a masterful knife. The writer and journalist knows how to spike the ills of society, such as selfishness, jealousy, sexism, social controversies, prejudices, inverted values, shame, revenge (without worrying about the opinions of others) in a unique style, besides depicting good things in life: sustainable education, significant historical facts, generosity, pride of being Brazilian, Lusophony, success of Literary Fairs in Brazil, love...

The book “Tecendo a Sanidade: o Caso Arthur Bispo do Rosário”, from the psychologist and writer Eliane Tonello, presents a narrative about the life and work of Brazilian artist Arthur Bispo do Rosário, who lived to be 80 years old, between comings and goings in an asylum cell of the 20th century, using the art to improve his health. The writer also provides the rereading of his work from drawings, plus two autobiographical narratives.

A wide scope of topics to the reader’s delight!

UNA DONNA, UNA RIVELAZIONE

COSE CHE SUCCEDONO Some words of the author: Since childhood I was concerned with the roles allocated to women. They were so tight because they did not believe in their abilities. The woman was little more than a thing! So said the men, the church and laws. Of course, that not everyone thought so, but it was what was happening. In the book ”Cose che succedono” / “Things That Happen”, and in my books I always tried to condemn this situation. In the first, I wrote a Brazilian‘s history, from the women’s perspective, in that way I could portray, through the biographies, the Brazilian memorable saga of the conquest of their rights...

ELAS, AS PIONEIRAS DO BRASIL

The story of Marina… Both author as a witness of change, the life of that woman, formed by four familiar generations, who had crossed the oceans, immigrations, colonization, discriminations, emancipations, revolutions, dictatorships and revelations, it is nothing more than a sincere and authentic portrait of a woman who could face and accept the progress, with all its consequences, positives and negatives. A woman undeniably tenacious, who, despite the struggles, malice, prejudice and sacrifices, has lived a life full of love, work and family.

Coauthor of several national and international Collections.

PARA COMPREENDER O MÉTODO DIALÉTICO: Uma Aplicação Prática no Pensamento Marxiano

It aims to socialize the results from studies of Marx’s work, notably in relation to the dialectical method as a way to seize the Marxist conception and make it accessible to all who are interested in the design of the great German philosopher. This book was drawn from the lessons of Political Philosophy taught by Professor José Chasin, at UFMG, mainly the introductory phrase and the lessons about Method in Marx, taught by Professor José Paulo Netto, during the author’s PhD in Social Sciences at PUC/SP.

UM CAMINHO PARA MARX

DIGNIDADE NA MORTE: Direito do ser social idoso

It proposes to indicate a path for better understanding Karl Marx’s work, which has always been not only intellectually, but, above all, a positioning guide before the world.

It deals with the Aging Process, offering a contribution for society to reflect on the situation of those who have the right to decide the moment of their death.

The book historically contextualizes the Marxist studies and shows how they are needed in the current historical moment, since this conception of the world is the only one which can handle the contradictions of contemporary capitalist society.

IVANILDE MORAIS DE GUSMÃO

The reflection emerges from social conditions, when the collapse of the body happens, linked to the social condition of senior citizens, in a society where everything becomes a merchandise. The poetic texts bring a lyrical character approach and a feminine look on life/death, analysing freedom, equality and human dignity as determinants for the discussion of finitude/infinity of Man.

LIGIA BRAZ

Ligia Braz is a restless, creative, intense person. As you can read from the jacket of her book: “A FILA ANDA” (NEXT, PLEASE!), she’s a woman exercising her biography between millennia and continents. As a journalist, working nowadays mainly in broadcasting, she came to Germany in 1989, coming from São Paulo, Brazil, just in time to see the walls crumble and countries reunite. Since 1992, living in Stuttgart, she has designed a bilingual international magazine called “Circulando”. She used to work at DCTV, the former TV station owned by the Daimler Chrisler fusion, and she has also worked as a businesswoman, a translator, an interpreter and a voice actress. Nowadays she is a committed social worker, in the educational and mediatic sector. Her son, now 15 years old, is her great companion in this literary adventure that began with the publishing of her “A FILA ANDA, milênios de observação fêmea” in 2010. Both, with her books under their arms, have visited nearby towns as well as Munich, Frankfurt, Geneva, Brussels, Zurich, London, New York, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, among others. They’re always accompanied by performers, who present readings which excel in bringing together many different artistic manifestations like music, paintings, dance or mode. She’s the mastermind behind the “Multicultural Manifest”, which she reckons as a development of these performances since they bring embedded in them social and political aspects, behind the work of those involved. As she hopes to encourage people to think and at the same time make a difference in their world around.

A FILA ANDA “Milênios de observação fêmea”

A FILA ANDA – “Milênios de observação fêmea” are short stories about the relationship between men and women of the generations between the XX and the XI centuries. It’s emotional, funny and not always politically correct. By using some confessional and autobiographical content, it leaves questions about the quantity of veracity and fiction in its pages. There is a not published English translation, named NEXT, PLEASE!

DE MULHER PARA MULHER Helena and Sophia. Two friends - bold and courageous women who question life, human relationships, sexuality, men, the other one, the future of the planet, the evolution of mankind and themselves in a visceral way. Above all, they question the mysteries of the most sublime of feelings, Love, in all its expressions. They could be of any nationality, have completely different physical biotypes, have alternative sexual tastes and preferences, be sportsmen or sedentary, be 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80 or 90 years old. They could be submissive or brave. Anyway, that doesn’t matter, because Helena and Sophia can be everything. In this work, the authors, Ligia Braz and Mariana Brasil, created them like this: both Brazilians, residing abroad, curious, dreamy and determined, in the middle of “she-Wolf”’s age. A book that was born against the grain of everything that sounds traditional. Diverse voices interact and complement each other, voices of memory, of dreams and fantasies. Voices, sometimes intermingled with disarming humour; at others, with genuine passages and landscapes, voices that expand composing a mosaic of emotions among pain, delights and uncertainty of female maturing. What doesn’t change is the depth and the seriousness with which each topic is treated, until you reach the deeper and conceptual breakthrough of this human three-dimensional trip, because it is physical, spiritual and psychic.

They could be submissive or brave. Anyway, that doesn’t matter, because Helena and Sophia can be everything. In this work, the authors, Ligia Braz and Mariana Brasil, created them like this: both Brazilians, residing abroad, curious, dreamy and determined, in the middle of “sheWolf”’s age. A book that was born against the grain of everything that sounds traditional. Diverse voices interact and complement each other, voices of memory, of dreams and fantasies. Voices, sometimes intermingled with disarming humour; at others, with genuine passages and landscapes, voices that expand composing a mosaic of emotions among pain, delights and uncertainty of female maturing. What doesn’t change is the depth and the seriousness with which each topic is treated, until you reach the deeper and conceptual breakthrough of this human three-dimensional trip, because it is physical, spiritual and psychic.

A LONGA ESTRADA DA VIDA

Is a work composed of stories that

describe the face of a society that

expatriates searching the dream of a

better life, a legion of humans who often

get lost along the way, can’t find the

way back and end up becoming invisible

in the current society.

SENTE-SE NO MEU BANCO! A shrine of emotions! This is the bench of life! Everybody sits on it and talks to each other: white people, black people, mixed races, blonde-haired people, redheads... Here, innocence reigns! We are all equal! (...) Guided by the magic writing of the language and my elementary instincts, I decided to share with you fragments of my perception, during this human pilgrimage, divided by the natural force of the sacred elements: Water, Earth, Fire, Air. However, I also wish to speak about the fifth element, LOVE, the one that connects all and the whole... LOVE... Our origin and our final destination... Poems that will delight everybody...

IL CASO CESARE BATTISTI La parola della Corte

“O Caso Cesare Battisti” (The Cesare Battisti Case), from Walter Filho, revisited and expanded in this Edition, published in Italy by A.C.I.MA. Edizioni Mandala, is not a matter of prosecution or conviction, but describes in detail the four murders for which the foreigner has been convicted; he has been the author of two of the shots. A very thorough analysis of the lawsuits in which Cesare Battisti was sentenced for crimes of murder, shows the illegality made in Brazil and that the non-extradition to Italy was a violence and disrespect to the bereaved families and to the Italian people.
