It is easy fora readerto become so engrossedin the mappingof the metafictional patternsat workin TheHouroftheStar,as to denyattention to the truestarof thisslim,ninety-pagenovella.

And thatis why Rodrigo S. Lifeis a punchin thestomach" The readeris forcedto assume complicitywiththenarrator'sclass-determined pointof view "I am a man who has moremoneythanthosewho go hungry,which in a certainway makes me dishonest"[ ,and to share in the guilty consciencewithwhichhe confronts Macab6a and otherhave-nots: Se o leitorpossuialgumariquezae vidabemacomodada, de si para sairai vercomo6 Asvezeso outro.

And,should thepointbe missedand the ironyfailto elicitresponse,directpromptingfromRodrigoS. While the second question may well be ultimatelyimpossibleto answer in an un- equivocal manner,the firstone seems almosttoo easy.

Macabea, to quote her one and onlyself-definition, is "a typistand a virgin"who likes coca- cola She is a nativeof theBrazilianNortheastern sertifo, "a or interior, in region that its torturedlandscape and harsh of reality droughts and severe economic ills, has attractedthe imaginationof many Brazilian writers" Peixoto Her arrivalin Rio de Janeirois an epitomeof the convergenceof two distinctsocial realities,two different human currents: This is how RodrigoS.

Clearly,TheHour oftheStaris no place for facilesocialistrealism,as proven,at anotherpoint,by Macabea's reaction to thetitleofDostoevski'sTheInsultedand theInjured: Pensou,pensoue pensou!

It'svery simple: Just this: Ifyougetmy meaning, fine. Ifnot,fineas well. Butwhyam I botheringwiththisgirl whenwhatI reallyyearnforis thewheatturning pure,ripeandgoldenin summer? For the ripe,golden wheatthatMacabea's creatorwould ratherdreamand writeabout,instead ofbeingstuckwithhis unwholesomeprotagonist, also plays theroleofyet anotherof those threadsof semanticand symbolicmeaningwhich guide and supportCixous's approach to Lispector.

Its origincan be tracedto a passage in a shortstory"Tantamansiddo" "Such gentleness" morethan once quoted by Cixous in her writings. It also appears in the essay "L'- Auteuren verit6,"a commentary at once brilliantly insightful and distress- inglyfallaciouson TheHouroftheStar includedin thevolume L'Heurede Clarice Lispector: Que simplicidade.

Yet, in The Hour oftheStar,thereis no place forthe unques- tioned,purebliss ofsuch communion,a factwhichCixous dulynotesand, in doing so, comes to an interesting conclusion: Ce qu'unauteurfemme peutfaireplus facilementqu'unauteurhomme.

Whatever psychological reasons could have promptedLispector'sinventionof RodrigoS. Rodrigoneverrelinquishesnarrative control;it is his voice thatspeaks in theautobiographicalpreface Peixoto ; and he also declareshimselfto be the authorof the novel's thirteen alternativetitles "I blame myself,as I explainedin one ofmy titlesforthis book" [38].

The storyof the hapless protagonist'slife and death is Rodrigo's uncontestedmonopoly,never impingedupon by any othernarrativeagent,and it is difficult to acceptthattheircat-and-mouse SubStance 73, This content downloaded from Cixous'sreadingcould,however, suggestan interpretationofherper- sonalviewofTheHouroftheStarin thelargercontext ofherintertextual dialoguewithLispector.

If,as Suleimantellsus,Cixous'sdiscovery ofthis novelmadehernotonlyrereadonceagainLispector's previousworks, but also reread,andrewrite,severalofherown xv ,itbecomespossibletosee in TheHouroftheStarpreciselythekindof defamiliarizing devicethat CixousfindsinRodrigoS. Andso thewindow onceagainturnsintoa mirror, theradicalotherness narrative ofLispector's experiment inTheHouroftheStarbecoming assimilated intothemosaic or is it a meltingpot? The one who is virtuallyexcludedfrom such a readingofthe novel is Macabea the herself, inassimilableother,and,inCixous'sessay,theobjectofperhapsthemost troubling misreadingofall: WhatCixousfailstonoticehereis thatMacabeais presented as havingno accessat all to gustatory tellsus, she "losther pleasures;as thenarrator appetite,she only felta greathunger" Her daily fareconsistsof hot dogs and coca-cola; her one luxuryare a few sips of cold coffeebefore Shealsobecomesill inthemorning.

In short,Macabea "suffersfrompermanenthungerand equallypermanentnausea,indexesof herpositionin a worldshe cannotincorporateand whichrefusesto accept her" Peixoto As if fulfillingthe chillingpromisecon- tainedin his initials,heis theone who appears toregaina new appreciation of life's"simplepleasures" throughhis sadisticdenial of themto his crea- SubStance 73, This content downloaded from Given thisdisparity-fruitand whitewine on theone hand, hot dogs and coke on theother-how are we supposed to read thenovel's finalsentences,when RodrigoS.

Yes" This cruellyforgetful, final "yes," which erases the memory of Macabea and supplants it with a crav- ing for strawberries,seems disturbinglyreminiscentof Molly Bloom's "Yes" in Joyce'sUlysses,theveryword which,accordingto Cixous, is "in thebeginningof thewomen's bible" by theway, TheHouroftheStaralso startswith a "yes" [,4].

In such perversefashion Cixous ends up paradoxically,or perhaps appropriately,siding with RodrigoS. This readingappears to contradictqualitiesmostpraisedby Cixous's admirers-her theoreticalacutenessin dealingwiththequestionofOther- ness, and a respectfulopennessin approachingforeigntextsand realities.

Thisimpliesa necessarypassivityin activity, something that,a decade ago, mighthave been calledfemininity in contrastto a more Western,phallicmasculinitythatproposeschangethrough violent action.

Thisis thepathI takeinmyreadingofAguaviva. I couldhavetakenitin anyother textby Lispector.

This is, ofcourse,a patternunderlying many different situations of masteryand assimilation,be it the sexual of politics phallic sameness, symmetrically reflectedin the pseudo-dif- ferenceof its feminineother,or the post- colonialexerciseof culturaland political dominance.

As forLispectorherself, she alwaystookpains to dismiss suchcomments, insisting on herBrazilianness and agreeingto giveinterviews chiefly in orderto explainthatshe was "nota myth,"buta "personlikeanyother" Varin51, If I may ventureanotherfar-fetched remark,I would like to indicateherea possible link to Cixous's personalnetworkof geolinguisticcorrespondences: For example: J'essaiede donnerce que j'ai vecu.

An alternativestructure wouldbe thatofa "giftrelationship," involvinga larger communitywhose wealthcirculatesin a constantprocessof give-and-take "So all have it,even thoughtheydo not possess it and even thoughtheydo not own it".

Its origincan be tracedto a passage in a shortstory"Tantamansiddo" "Such gentleness" morethan once quoted by Cixous in her writings. We are thusgivento understand thatCixous's Frenchtranslations and interpretations of Lispectorare perhapseven closertothe"original" thantheoriginalis toitself similarly, Lispector as a writercomesthrough as more"Cixousian"than"Lispectorian".

Since, for Irigaray, philosophy is founded-indeed, grounded-on the female to the exclusion of the female and to the privileging of homo-sexual relations, to read through the female in underneath philosophy is to show up Western philosophy's inherent "blind spot of an ancient dream of symmetry": Irigaray argues that, whatever the avatars of the history of 'truth,' Peixoto maintains that Macabea learns "nothing from her trials" , 98 ; but learning, like knowing, is completely beside the point for Macab6a: she is Lispector's closest approach yet to the unknowing, prelinguistic, unthought female origin of being: "[a] morte 6 um encontro consigo" , The significanceof Macabea's nameis particularly emphasizedbyitsbeingcontrasted withthenamesof herboyfriend and ofthewomanforwhomhe ultimately dumpsMacabea:
