During the s and s, Portugal experienced economic growth due to increased raw material exports to the war-ravaged and recovering nations of Europe. Until the s, however, the country remained very poor and largely underdeveloped due to its disadvantaged starting position and lack of effective policies to counter that situation. Some liberal economic reforms advocated by elements of the ruling party, which were successfully implemented under similar circumstances in neighboring Spain, were rejected out of fear that industrialization would destabilize the regime and its ideological base and would strengthen the Communists and other left-wing movements.

In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: To Close or Not to Close: Many of the best analyses of closure in short fiction, particularly those of Susan Lohafer, have dealt with very short stories; here I examine closure in a difficult case at the opposite end of the scale.
Munro's story has already gained considerable attention, recent as it is; it first appeared in The New Yorker inand later as the title story in a collection. It has been the focus of several fine articles, in particular those by Catherine Sheldrick Ross, Mark Nunes, Ildiko de Papp Carrington, Dennis Duffy, and Judith McCombs, but the implications of the ending have broad implications for how open endings in stories of different length might work and for the reader's desire for closure in any narrative.
The story centers on Enid, a practical nurse, caring for the dying Mrs. Quinn, a relatively young woman with two small daughters. It happens that Enid, a woman in her mid-thirties, still single, has known, as one might expect in a rural Ontario town, Mrs. Quinn's husband Rupert since childhood.
In grade school she had been part of a group of girls who enjoyed teasing him. Later in high school, her desk in front of his, she tried in small ways to make up for that mistreatment.
Rupert Quinn seems to have taken no notice of her, not when she teased him, not in high school, [End Page ] and not now as she cares for his wife, Jeannette, dying from a painful kidney disease of uncertain origin. The story meanders, not driving toward any particular ending; a key emerging element is the possible murder of a Mr.
Quinn in fact tells Enid three variants of the tale, but in each case it seems clear that Rupert discovered Mr. Willens in the middle of more than a home optical examination of Jeannette Quinn, and Rupert pounded the optometrist to death.
Quinn's insistence, husband and wife set about disposing of the body. Having heard this story, Enid becomes obsessed with making matters right, getting Rupert to confess. The story ends with her waiting by a river while Rupert seeks the hidden oars of a boat: If she tried to, she could still hear Rupert's movements in the bushes.
But if she concentrated on the motion of the boat, a slight and secretive motion, she could feel as if everything for a long way around had gone quiet" It's a teasingly restful conclusion, replete with what I would have called markers of natural termination in Toward the End: But Enid has gone dressed to the nines on this muddy bank, at the brink of recreating the boating scene in An American Tragedy: At the same time it has at least entered her mind that she could become a mother to the two Quinn girls in a way that Jeannette never was.
Furthermore, during this moment of quiet, Rupert is hacking a path in the brush with a hatchet. We've reached a situation as uncertain as that nineteenth-century classic, Frank Stockton's "The Lady or the Tiger.
Should the reader attempt to provide an extension, imagining a continuation in order to provide a resolution, i. Does the story in fact provide any clues to a future resolution?Watch Buceta loca de tesao video caseiro - free porn video on MecVideos.
OUT WITH THE OLD AND IN WITH THE NEW: An Analysis of “Maria dos Prazeres” Maria dos Prazeres is the representation of every human being. Figuratively, she mirrors how people are scared of what they don’t know and so we try to do the best we can to control the circumstances in our favor.

Enid, perhaps, as Carrington points out, but perhaps one of the boys, Cece, from the story's opening section, did: "The box may have been washed out of the car through the sunroof and later been found by one of the boys, perhaps Cece.
