Read full description of the books O Senhor Ventura:

«Escrito em 1943, O Senhor Ventura apresenta-nos a figura de um português errante por terras do Oriente, uma figura com uma longa tradição na literatura portuguesa, desde Os Lusíadas ou a Peregrinação de Fernão Mendes Pinto até O Mandarim de Eça.
O Senhor Ventura, personagem que parece extraída do melhor romance picaresco, sai do seu Alentejo natal para se lançar a uma vida de aventuras pela China, que o levará ao desempenho das mais diversas atividades, nem sempre legais. A viagem serve-lhe também como descobrimento da amizade e do amor que o protagonista vive de forma atormentada.
A figura do senhor Ventura personifica o triunfo da vontade, mas também propicia uma reflexão sobre uma certa ideia de Portugal. Nesta personagem, Miguel Torga reivindica a recuperação do espírito intrépido e aventureiro dos portugueses da época dos Descobrimentos. Em palavras do autor: "Não me resigno à ideia de ter vindo à luz neste tempo e numa terra durante séculos inquieta de descobrir e saber, e depois tragicamente adormecida para tudo o que não seja olhar-se e resignar-se... Encho-me da lembrança mágica do Senhor Ventura, que nenhuma razão impediu de correr as sete partidas que esperam em vão por nós."»

Read information about the author

Ebook O Senhor Ventura read Online! Miguel Torga, pseudonym of Adolfo Correia da Rocha was one of the greatest Portuguese writers of the 20th century. He wrote poetry, short stories, theater and a 16 volume diary.

He was born in a village in Trás-os-Montes, northern Portugal, to small-time farmer parents. After a short spell as student in a catholic seminary in Lamego, also in Trás-os-Montes, in 1920 his father sent him to Brazil where he worked on the coffee plantation of an uncle who, finding him to be a clever student, paid his high school there and afterwards his medicine graduation (1933) at the University of Coimbra, in Portugal (to where he returns in 1925).

After graduation he worked in his village and in other places in the country, publishing his books from his own pocket for a number of years. In 1941, he established himself as an otolaryngologist physician in Coimbra.
His agnostic beliefs seems to reflect in his work, that deals mainly with the nobility of the human condition in a beautiful but ruthless world where God is absent or is nothing but a passive and silent, indiferent creator.

After the value of his work was being recognized, he went on to receive several awards, as the Prémio Camões in 1989 and the Montaigne award in 1981. He was several times nominated for the Nobel Prize of Literature, being the last one in 1994, but he never won.
