Stormy Isles


We have run out of stock for this item.

Stormy Isles, originally published in Portuguese in 1944 nd set in the Azores between 1917 and 1919, focuses on the vivacious and sharp Margarida, who, at twenty years of age, is a model of feminist aspirations, and the paragon of her generation. A member of the elite, she foregoes some of the entitlements of her class and struggles with the morals of the bourgeois society in which her life unfolds. Narrated in realist and poetic language as a series of interconnected tales within a larger tale, Stormy Isles provides a rich, vivid portrait of the Azores in the early twentieth century.
