Some people consider this to be the Brazilian equivalent of Ulysses. He was self-taught in many areas and from childhood studied many languages, starting with French before he was seven years old.
Still a child, he moved to his grandparents’ house in Belo Horizonte, where he finished primary school.
Inat only 16, he applied for what was then called the College of Medicine of Minas Gerais University. In that same year he graduated and began his medical practice in Itaguara, then in sdrton municipality of Itauna, in Minas Gerais, where he stayed about two years. Later he became a civil servant through examination.
Most of his life was spent as a Brazilian diplomat in Europe and Latin America. After postponing for 4 years, he finally assumed his position only in His masterpiece is The Devil to Pay in the Backlands.
Following his own existential quest, he contemplates making a deal with Lucifer in order to eliminate Hermogenes, his nemesis.
In this sense he is an incarnation of the classical hero in the Brazilian backlands. Guimaraes Rosa died at the summit of his diplomatic and literary career. Quotes from Gran Serton: Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
