Excerpts from Grand Sertão: Veredas
By João Guimarães Rosa
Translated from the Portuguese by GoogleTM
There is no devil. Neither spirit. I've never seen. Someone ought to see, so it was myself, this your servant. Would tell you ... Well, the devil regulates its black state, the creatures, women, men. Ate: children - I say. Well, not saying "boy - train the devil"? And the uses in plants, the waters, on land, wind ... Manure. ... The devil in the street in the middle of the whirlwind ...
Huh? Huh? Ah. Figuration mine, the worst behind, the certain memories. Unlucky me! I suffer no penalty count ... Best if arrepare: for a ground, and with the same format of branches and leaves, not of the sweet cassava, which is eaten policy, and the bitter cassava, which kills? Now, you've seen a estranhez? The sweet cassava can suddenly turn azangada - reasons I do not know, sometimes it says and replanted in the ground forever, with seedlings followed, manaibas - loathing going on, every so often, takes the venom itself. And, it turns out, the other the mandiocabrava, and also that sometimes can become tame, at random, to be eaten without any harm. And that and? Eh, you've seen, to see the ugliness of hate wrinkled, ugly faces, the faces of a rattlesnake? He watched the pork fat, crude happier every day, can, could, snorting and swallowing for your convenience dirty the whole world? And hawk, crow, some of them the features already represent the accuracy of forward slash, tear and shred the bill, it seems a very sharp bounce by evil desire. Everything. Pies have up races stones, ugly, poisonous - deadly to spoil the water, if they are lying on the bottom of the well, the devil inside them sleep: are the demo. If you know? And the demo - and so well that the meaning of a quicksilver evil - has ordered to follow his path, licensed to champion?! Arre, he mixed in all this.
That it spends, will spend the devil inside us, little by little, and the reasonable suffer. And the joy of love - my compadre Quelemem says. Familia. Really? And, and not e. You do not ache and ache. And everything and not e. .. Almost every serious criminal more fierce, and always very good husband, good son, good father and good friend-of-your-friends! I know of. So that is the later - and God together. I saw lots of clouds.
