WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (texto de apoio 1º anos)


Demetrius: I don´t love you, stop following me! Where are Lysander and pretty Hermia?
The one I’ll kill and the other one is killing me.You told me they were hiding in this wood. And here I am angry in this wood , because I cannot see my Hermia. So, leave and stop following me.

Helena: You draw me, you cruel and stubborn magnet, but you don´t draw iron, because my heart is as true as steel: If you give up your power to draw me. I will have no power to follow you.

Demetrius: Do I really draw you? do I ever say nice things to you? Or, instad, do I tell you in the plainest truth. That I do not and I cannot love you?

Helena: And even after that I love you more. I am your dog, and, Demetrius, the more you hurt me, the more I will like you? use me as your dog, don´t accept me, hit me, ignore me, lose me, let me follow you, even thogh I’m not goo enough to follow you. In what worse position can I ask you for your love (and it is still a place of high respect for me) Than to be used as you use your dog?

Demetrius: Don’t tempt my hate for you too much. Lookig at you makes me sick.

Helena: And I’m sick when I don’t look at you.

The story takes place in Westeros, medieval Europe and tells the story of some families (houses) and their conflicts.

At the beginning of the story, Lord Eddard “Ned” Stark executes a deserter from the Night’s Watch, the militia protecting the immense wall of ice, stone and magic that protects the Seven Kingdoms. Ned is recruited by King Robert Baratheon to replace Arryn who is dead, as the King’s Hand.

Arryn’s widow Lysa believes Queen Cersei and her family, Lannister, poisoned Arryn. Ned eventually discovers that Robert’s legal heirs including Joffrey are in fact Cersei’s children with Jaime, Cersei’s brother and that Arryn was killed to conceal his discovery.

After this discovery Ned was arrested and murdered with false acusations.

Then Robb Stark, prepared an  army and marched south in response to his father’s arrest and death.

Robb chooses to not ally himself with Robert’s brothers, Reinly and Stannis, because both have claims to the throne.


Comentários de Lucas Deschain para a obra de Emily Dickinson,  disponível em   http://www.posfacio.com.br/2012/07/31/fifty-poems-cinquenta-poemas-emily-dickinson/ , acesso em 20 de setembro de 2014.

Há contrastes – as imagens belas e “festivas” – aparecem recorrentemente a natureza. Os cenários naturais servem para mostrar a beleza incrustada nos cenários campestres e nas estações, e também para despertar os sentidos para experiências sensoriais em imagens cheias de vida e de cor. Há também imagens pesadas, palavras pouco esperançosas e o mesmo sentimento de peso da existência – mesclado com uma visão de contraste menos mórbida da vida. No final parece com uma espécie de testamento da poetisa, que pode ser visto no poema “This is my letter to the World”, onde ela junta a ânsia de compreensão e retrato do mundo com a importância da natureza para sua arte poética. Há toda uma exploração da concepção de Poesia presente nos belos e sonoros versos desse poema.

Some Poems:

Nature rarely uses yellow
Then another Hue
Saves she all of that for Sunsets
Prodigal of Blue

Spending Scarlet, like a Woman
Yellow she affords
Only scantly and selectly
Like a Lover’s Words


This is my letter to the World
That never wrote to Me –
The simple News that Nature told –
With tender Majesty
Her message is comitted
To Hand I cannot see –
For love of Her – sweet – countrymen
Judge tenderly – of Me


Afraid? Of whom am I afraid?
Not Death – for who is He?
The Porter of my Father’s Lodge
As much abasheth me.

Of Life? ‘Twere odd I fear [a] thing
That comprehendeth me
In one or more existences –
At Deity decree –

Of Resurrection? Is the East
Afraid to trust the Morn
With her fastidious forehead?
As soon impeach my Crown!


I hide myself within my flower
That fading from your Vase,
You, unsuspecting, feel for me –
Almost a loneliness.


Sinopse adaptada do roteiro para o filme UM SONHO DE LIBERDADE da obra Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption

In 1947, banker Andy Dufresne is convicted of murdering his wife and her lover and sentenced to two consecua tive life sentences at the fictional Shawshank State Penitentiary in the state of Maine. Andy befriends contraband smuggler Ellis “Red” Redding, an inmate serving a life sentence. Red procures a rock hammer and later a large poster of Rita Hayworth for Andy. Working in the prison laundry, Andy is regularly assaulted by the “bull queer” gang “the Sisters” and their leader, Bogs.
In 1949, Warden Samuel Norton meets with Andy and reassigns him to the prison library to assist elderly inmate Brooks Hatlen. Andy’s new job is a pretext for him to begin managing financial matters for the prison employees. As time passes, the warden begins using Andy to handle matters for a variety of people including guards from other prisons and the warden himself. Andy begins writing weekly letters to the state government for funds to improve the decaying library.
Andy and his friends stay in the prison for many years. With his graduation, he helped his the other inmates and the guards. He was very responsible.
Andy is released from solitary confinement and tells Red of his dream of living in Zihuatanejo, a Mexican coastal town. Red feels Andy is being unrealistic, but promises Andy that if he is ever released he will visit a specific place.
Andy escaped through the tunnel and used the prison’s sewage pipe to reach freedom.



Gettysburg Address – speech

“Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. “
