hoje, no mercado, uma vendedora de flores ofereceu-me frésias (ofereceu-mas porque me recusei a comprá-las, diga-se, que eram caríssimas). trago-lhe aqui dois pés, como agradecimento pelas spanish bombs. ando a cantar o refrão desde ontem, e eu já não cantava coisa nenhuma vai para uma semana, no mínimo.

Ryszard Kapuściński listen (help·info) (Born March 4, 1932 in Pińsk, died January 23, 2007 in Warsaw) was a popular Polish journalist, both at home and abroad.

Born in Pińsk, a city that was formerly located in the Kresy Wschodnie (Eastern Borderlands) of the Second Polish Republic and now belongs to Belarus, Kapuściński is generally thought of as Poland's leading journalist. In 1964, after honing his skills on domestic stories, he "was appointed by the Polish Press Agency as its only foreign correspondent, and for the next ten years he was 'responsible' for fifty countries." [1] Throughout this period, Kapuściński traveled around the developing world and reported on wars, coups and revolutions in the Americas, Asia and Europe. When he finally returned to Poland, he had lived through twenty-seven revolutions and coups. In the English speaking world, Kapuściński is best known for his reporting from Africa in the 1960s and 1970s, when he witnessed first-hand the continent's liberation from colonialism.

Starting in the early 1960s, Kapuściński has published books of increasing literary craftsmanship characterized by sophisticated narrative technique, psychological portraits of characters, a wealth of stylization and metaphor and unusual imagery that serves as means of interpreting the perceived world. Kapuściński's best-known book, The Emperor, concerns itself with the decline of Haile Selassie's anachronistic regime in Ethiopia. Shah of Shahs, on the fall of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the last Shah of Iran, and Imperium, about the last days of the Soviet Union, have enjoyed similar success. [2]

Kapuściński was fascinated not only by exotic worlds and people, but also by books: he approached foreign countries first through literature, spending months reading before each trip. He knew how to listen to the people he meets, but he was also capable of "reading" the hidden sense of the scenes he encounters: the way that the Europeans move out of Angola, a discussion regarding alimony in the Tanganyikan parliament, the reconstruction of frescoes in the new Russia - he turned each of these vignettes into a metaphor of historical transformation. This tendency to process private adventures into a greater social synthesis has made Kapuściński an eminent thinker, and the volumes of his ongoing Lapidarium series are a fascinating record of the shaping of a reporter's observations into philosophical reflections on the world and people.

He died on January 23rd, 2007, after a grave illness.

Não agradeça a mim, bizantina, mas aos clash. E claro que a canção é viciante, quase hipnótica, apesar de o pobre do joe strummer não fazer grande coisa do que estava práli a dizer (bombas espanholas, na andaluzia, em 39?, quando a festa estava já terminada?. Mas enfim, percebe-se onde é que ele quer chegar.


Anonymous,
obrigado pela informação. Fico triste também, pois gosto muito do Kapuscinski. mas ficam os seus retratos do Outro, que nos dão a verdadeira dimensão da nossa ignorância.

além de hipnótico e viciante, há ainda aquele espanhol arrevesado, irresistível de má laia, troca-tintas.
