9780850515091: Amor De Perdicao (Classicos da Literatura Portuguesa)

Perhaps the height of Portuguese romanticism, Amor de Perdição is a Portuguese Romeo and Juliet. Simão Botelho and Teresa are hopelessly in love, but their families are rivals in Viseu. When Teresa's father, Tadeu, discovers their love, he shuts her in a convent. But, while trying to see his beloved, Simão kills Baltasar, and eventually condemned to death. The sentence is commuted to 10 years of service in India, but before the sentence is executed, both Teresa and Simão die of broken hearts.

About the Author :

Like the characters in many of his own novels, Camilo Ferreira Botelho Castelo Branco (1825-1890) lived a dramatic life full of tribulations. Born illegitimate and listed as the child of an 'unknown mother,' he was raised by his aunt and sister in rural Trás-os-Montes. Married at 16, he abandoned his new wife a short time later. He seduced a woman at 21 and was then arrested for bigamy and left her. By 1848, Camilo was living by his work as a journalist and had started writing the romantic novels that made him popular. When Camilo found the love of his life, Ana Plácido, in 1850, she was married to another. After a stint in a seminary, where he had an affair with a nun and tried to commit suicide, he finally convinced Ana to leave her husband in 1852. After they were both arrested for adultery, they were able to begin their life together. They had two children, both of whom suffered from health problems. In order to meet his financial obligations, Camilo turned to! writing novels full time, becoming the first Portuguese writer to live from his writing. In 1888, he was finally able to marry Ana Plácido, but then discovered he was losing his vision because of syphillus. Increasingly depressed, Camilo Castelo Branco committed suicide in 1890.
