Camilo Castelo Branco Writer

Amor de Perdição 1862

Amor de Perdição is the title of a Portuguese novel and film by Camilo Castelo Branco, written in 1861 and adapted in 1979. It is the author's most famous novel, one of the exponents of romanticism in Portugal.

The writing of this work, his greatest novel of passion, was inspired by real facts, lived by the uncle of Camilo Castelo Branco, Simão António Botelho, arrested for murder in the Chain of Relation of Porto. The narrative takes place in the Portuguese province and partly reflects the misadventures of the author who, in the prison for a year under the accusation of adultery, "written in a little more than a fortnight," the sad story of my paternal uncle Simão António Botelho "who" loved, was lost and died of love. This is the story. With the publication of this work, in 1862, Castelo Branco receives the popularity that, in his opinion, does not try - in describing his novel in a preface of 1879 (twenty years after the first edition) , he speaks very badly: disturbed, it seems, from the great success and with the current interpretation of the romance of passion.
