Tereza Batista: Home from the Wars (Portuguese: Teresa Batista Cansada de Guerra) is a Brazilian modernist novel.

Jorge Amado, Barbara Shelby (Translator). Liking was never enough. Tereza Batista: Home from the Wars is a darkly picaresque story thoroughly stylized to a grotesquely melodramatic dime novel and it ends happily. But are there many happy endings of sad stories in real life?. Oct 10, 2014 Nick rated it it was ok.

Jorge Leal Amado de Faria (1912 – 2001) was a Brazilian writer of the modernist school. His work reflects the image of a mestizo Brazil and is marked by religious syncretism. It'd be a much better book if it was half as long. I'm glad I read it but what a chore! Writing is self-indulgent and undisciplined.

Her story unfolds with brilliance and luminous intensity, a masterpiece of contemporary literature by Brazil's foremost novelist. It is the story of Tereza, the twelve-year-old girl who is sold into slavery by her aunt. It is the story of Tereza, the young woman, who is jailed for defending her lover only to find him untrue. And it is the story of Tereza, reigning goddess of love -- inspiration to poets, painters, and sailors on leave; mistress of a noble patriarch; chief-of-staff to the armies of whores on strike; and triumphant Queen of the Samba -- desired, admired, and honored by all. Jorge Leal Amado de Faria (1912 - 2001) was a Brazilian writer of the modernist school. He was the best-known of modern Brazilian writers, his work having been translated into some 49 languages and popularized in film, notably 'Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands' in 1978. His work reflects the image of a mestizo Brazil and is marked by religious syncretism. He depicted a cheerful and optimistic country that was beset, at the same time, with deep social and economic differences. He occupied the 23rd chair of the Brazilian Academy of Letters from 1961 until his death in 2001.

Amado is an engrossing story teller - he may shock you at times because of his "realism"; however, you become engaged with all the characters and don't want the story to end.
Gold as Heart
It'd be a much better book if it was half as long. However, it is a pretty typical Amado story, but very ambitious, all wrapped up in Bahian morality, female liberation, social njustice, persective of Brazilian capitalist history, and the power of love. I'm glad I read it but what a chore!

Writing is self-indulgent and undisciplined. Writing-- Amado at his worst. Story-- Amado at his best.
