    1. The newspapers were protesting against the way has Africanized among us, the feast of carnival, this great civilization festival During the first years of the new century, the press campaign against the afosh s grows violent and systematic, with each success of processions of Africans and every failure of the Great Carnival Societies with ancient Greece, with Louis XV, Catherine Medici favorites of good gentlemen, doctors, wealthy The authorities should prohibit these tambourinades and these can [...]

    2. Na verdade, li este h muitos anos, ainda em casa dos meus pais, num volume grosso e velho, de folhas amarelas e capa muito, muito gasta, com as pontas reviradas e vincos J n o seria capaz de contar a hist ria, mas penso nele e vem me ideia sol e m sica na rua N o sei porqu , pode nada ter a ver N o hesito, por m, em dar lhe as cinco estrelas, porque permanece na minha mem ria afectiva de forma intensa e perene, tanto que, entre a vontade de rel lo e o receio de diluir o muito que gostei dele, e [...]

    3. Americans are very familiar with the history of racial struggle in the U.S from the days of slavery to Jim Crow to the Civil Rights era to the modern day which, while unquestionably better than previous eras, is still a long way from perfect Most of us know a lot less about Brazil, though Brazil has gone through very similar yet different trials Another large, wealthy country that once practiced slavery on a large scale, then eventually legislated a racial equality on paper that was generations [...]

    4. The University of the East UE here in the Philippines celebrates this year its 65th foundation anniversary with the theme Jose Rizal Nasa Puso ng UE Jose Rizal In UE s Heart This is the type of bullshit Jorge Amado mocks in this novel.Pedro Archanjo has the same amusing bawdiness, the same love for drink and women, as several of Jorge Amado s characters in his better works, Gabriela, Clove and Cinnamon and Dona Flor s Two Husbands But he s tamer For one, he s an intellectual He wrote four books, [...]

    5. The Tent of Miracles is the second book I ve read by Jorge Amado The first was The War of the Saints which was recommended to me as a book with a primary focus on the Yoruban spirit Oya who is widely known as Yansan in Brazil I read The War of the Saints some time ago It had tons of magical realism, but I remembered thinking at the time that I wanted spirituality, ritual and folklore That s when I was told to read The Tent of Miracles.Although I had heard about the discrimination against Afro B [...]

    6. Jorge Amado is a miracle As I read through Tent of Miracles, I kept saying to myself This is good, but is it really up to Amado s standard As I read the last few chapters, I said to myself Yes, meu bom, this is a book well worth reading, as are all of Amado s books The book s hero, Pedro Archanjo, is a mulatto, practitioner of candombl , self taught scholar and writer, and man of the people He comes to life so vividly that, for the first three hundred pages, I thought that Amado was basing it on [...]

    7. Pedro Archanjo the hero of the tent of miracles is a difficult man to assign a part to He s the writer of 4 books, which some twenty years after his death are seeing a revival As a result of the interest of an american academic interest is revived in Pedro s life The result is the story of a man, his friends, the women in his life and the children He s a likeable rogue, intelligent and a believer in saying what he thinks is right Did love the section where he s a proofwriter, and the mistakes he [...]

    8. Maybe it was my lack of emotional connection to the subject matter, maybe the fact that I simply couldn t make sense of the narration style in many places and had to actively keep thinking back to what had just happened or maybe it was just the needless almost disgusting sexualisation of nearly all of the female characters, but I couldn t make it all the way through this book.

    11. Ogni volta che leggo Amado vengo risucchiata nella storia dal ritmo travolgente dei suoi libri, simile a quello della samba, che ossessivamente si ripete tra movimenti sinuosi e sfrenati, anche volgari ma mai violenti Anche questa volta andata cos Finalmente un personaggio maschile al centro della storia, Pedro Archanjo, contornato da tantissimi altri, ognuno con le proprie vite piene di povert e di tristezza ma anche scanzonate e stravaganti, che li rendono unici e indimenticabili Rosa di Oxal [...]

    12. Ugh my god Arduous Plodding Well written, I ll give it that And Archango s an inspiring character The trouble is that, once you realize around page 50 that the entire book will pretty much consist of a series of reconstructions of the same life of one ordinary hero previously lost from Brazil s history, it s hard not to get bored with the pattern of nuanced changes that each new narration makes For example, it s clever to use a fake nine year old boy s essay contest submission about said hero s [...]

    13. Is it the mixture of African rituals, local legends, fascinating customs, and strange and wonderful characters and or its English translation of Brazil s most illustrious and venerable novelist that madeTent of Miraclessuch challenging reading for me When the English translation was published in 1989, first published asTenda dos Milagres in Portguese in 1969 theWashington Postreview included the words A richness and warmth that are impossible to resist.Normally I do not enter any titles I value [...]

    15. recommended by Lonely Planet as good way to understand Condombl this was a major disappointment by the great writer Jorge Amado weak characters, plot, content and seemingly quickly thrown together

    16. Whew Glad that one s finally complete The beginning of this book was quite a challenge to get through Justt good, not engaging at all Then, just as I was about ready to give up on it, it got interestingabout 150 pages in The introduction to this book mentions that Amado was known to write his books on one sitting and then refuse to go back and make than the slightest edits, and that is what this book is lacking major editing Because the second 150 pages are SO interesting So many comments on ra [...]

    17. Life story of Pedro Arkanjo who is a special person from Bahia Brazil Everything can happens at the miracles shop Sometimes sexual content and mysticism magic be seen locally in the book Racizm and perspective of crossbreed be underlined especially in Brazil.

    18. I wanted to like this book It started out with a bang, and then somewhere along the way I just began to lose interest It read like a collection of folktales than like a novel Even though the thread of the novel carried well all the way through, any chapter could be pulled out at random and enjoyed on its own merits However, despite its cast of exotic and interesting characters, as a full fledged novel it simply didn t pull me through the book as effectively as I had hoped it would.

    19. Na Tenda dos Milagres, na ladeira do Tabu o, em Salvador, onde o amigo L dio Corr mant m uma modesta tipografia e pinta quadros de milagres de santos, o mulato Pedro Archanjo atua como uma esp cie de intelectual org nico do povo afro descendente da Bahia.

    20. It undoubtedly explores important Latin American political themes But the sexism of Amado s novels is just too much for me to stomach any .

    21. I now know that not all Amado books are great, but this one is It is about a painter of Milagros and his women Great, full of live and color and vision, makes you want to live in Bahia

    22. An amazing tale of magic realism, centered on the life of Pedro Archanjo, a Brazilian mestizo who becomes an ethnographer and outspoken advocate for the mulatto culture he represents Brilliantly descriptive, with wonderful characters and dialogue, transporting the reader into the magical world Archanjo represents.

    23. Have you ever encountered a writer and become so enchanted with his books that you couldn t get enough of them I have, and Brazilian novelist Jorge Amado is one of them.Translated into some 49 languages, several of his novels were made into film Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands , Gabriela and Tieta , all of which I ve seen Gabriela 1958 , The Two Deaths of Quincas Wateryell 1959 , Home Is the Sailor 1961 , Shepherds of the Night 1964 , Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands 1966 , Tent of Miracles 1969 , [...]

    24. Very interesting and funny book, about a made up I think author from Bahia, Brazil, Pedro Archanjo partly about his life and works, but partly about his accidental rediscovery and mixed reputation after his death I loved the description about life in the poor parts of Bahia, amongst artists, prostitutes, mestizos and different religions.
