As Verdes Colinas de Africa [Green Hills of Africa] by Ernest Hemingway

By Ernest Hemingway

As Verdes Colinas de África divide-se em quatro partes: “caça e conversa”, “caça recordada”, “caça e derrota”, e “caça e felicidade”. A história que se conta nestes quatro segmentos é a de três caçadas com êxito ao leão, ao búfalo e ao rinoceronte, e a de uma longa caçada, apenas em parte bem sucedida, ao antílope. Para quem pensa que Hemingway period uma pessoa incapaz de auto-crítica, o livro será uma revelação. Hemingway, o escritor, escrutina aqui as complexas motivações de Hemingway, a personagem, e não hesita em criticar este último por quase ter estragado todo o prazer de uma aventura excepcional, com o seu desejo infantil de provar que é melhor caçador do que o seu amigo Karl. Os leitores a quem a história de uma caçada em África não interessa de forma muito especial têm de qualquer maneira boas razões para ler As Verdes Colinas de África. Muito em specific por causa do segmento “caça e conversa”, onde Hemingway analisa, com uma candura e uma profundidade fora do comum, a sua vida de escritor.
