The aim of this work is to propose that the narrative act of G.H. in Passion According to G.H. (1964), a novel by Clarice Lispector, features a mystical dimension which stands for the author’s intuitive and aesthetic appropriation of prerogatives found in I Ching, the Book of Changes – a great repository of Chinese culture and wisdom. The work’s argumentative proposition revolving around this core shall focus on empty spaces (full of meaning) left by Benedito Nunes’ criticism. As a result, it is expected that these propositions add new reading possibilities to some issues pointed out by the thorough critical work developed by Nunes (particularly the pathos of writing), as well as to metaphors and fictional codes used by Clarice, essentially regarding the work with language as used or devised by the writer in face of the representation of an experienced, felt or sensed reality. Contributions to this track are the images of Adherence singled out here as a major component of Lispectorian poetics. Convergences with this track are the significant direct and indirect, linear and non-linear relationships around Clarice Lispector, Benedito Nunes, ideogramic writing and the Chinese Classic of changes.
