Elizabeth Bishop on Clarice Lispector

 

Bishop’s letters reveal a particularly fraught relationship with everyone, including Lispector, she considered “primitive.” This piece deals with her (xenophobic/ racist) quest for the ideal primitive.

UPDATE: This full piece now appears in Aquifer: The Florida Review. Read the comic.
