Read full description of the books Contos Da Montanha:

Composto por 23 contos, neste livro Miguel Torga apresenta aos seus leitores textos que assentam mais em descrições do comportamento humano, das suas emoções e dos seus sentimentos do que em descrições de aspectos paisagísticos da zona geografica de que era originário o poeta. Citando alguns exemplos, em Maria Lionça, a personagem homónima personifica a ruralidade e a dignidade das mulheres transmontanas que, apesar de analfabetas, se impunham pelo respeito, pelos bons costumes e pela sua sabedoria popular empírica; em Bruxedo, a personagem Melra representa as superstições que, ao longo de muitas gerações, se foram enraizando na vida daquelas gentes, fazendo parte do seu dia-a-dia.
Mais um livro de belos contos escritos pelo poeta transmontano. Apesar de, tal como referia acima, estes contos terem uma forte componente humana, as descrições das serranias porque Torga era conhecido estão presentes e algumas bem marcantes até. Um livro onde as pessoas são os heróis e os sobreviventes da suas vidas de miséria, de fome e de sofrimento.

Read information about the author

Ebook Contos Da Montanha read Online! Miguel Torga, pseudonym of Adolfo Correia da Rocha was one of the greatest Portuguese writers of the 20th century. He wrote poetry, short stories, theater and a 16 volume diary.

He was born in a village in Trás-os-Montes, northern Portugal, to small-time farmer parents. After a short spell as student in a catholic seminary in Lamego, also in Trás-os-Montes, in 1920 his father sent him to Brazil where he worked on the coffee plantation of an uncle who, finding him to be a clever student, paid his high school there and afterwards his medicine graduation (1933) at the University of Coimbra, in Portugal (to where he returns in 1925).

After graduation he worked in his village and in other places in the country, publishing his books from his own pocket for a number of years. In 1941, he established himself as an otolaryngologist physician in Coimbra.
His agnostic beliefs seems to reflect in his work, that deals mainly with the nobility of the human condition in a beautiful but ruthless world where God is absent or is nothing but a passive and silent, indiferent creator.

After the value of his work was being recognized, he went on to receive several awards, as the Prémio Camões in 1989 and the Montaigne award in 1981. He was several times nominated for the Nobel Prize of Literature, being the last one in 1994, but he never won.
