Who read "Child of the Dark" by Carolina Maria de Jesus?

“Quiz” –Carolina Maria d Jesus (1963). Child of the Dark. NY: Mentor Books Please type your answers to all questions below about this powerful diary of a woman in poverty. Questions 1-5 should be at least one paragraph long. Question # 6 should be 1-2 paragraphs, with additional questions. When and where was Carolina Maria de Jesus born? Who were her parents? How is it that she is literate when her mother was not? After moving to Sao Paolo, CM de J worked as a domestic. What were some of the specific problems she encountered in these jobs? What if anything does this tell us about the complexities of race and class in Brazil? Why and when did she become a “recycler?” What did this consist of? Provide at least two specific examples of the drawbacks of this economic strategy for her, and how specifically (if at all) were some of the benefits? This diary was originally published in Portuguese as el Cuarto Despejo (roughly, “The Garbage Room”). What does this title symbolize about her status and the struggles she faces in her life? In terms of kinship, what is CM de J’s relationship like with her children? What kinds of romantic relationships does she enter into? Why don’t these last? What are her hopes for her children’s futures? Finally, there are many connections between this book and our project on recycling. You have written research designs for your own mini-projects. I don’t expect you to do a full research design for this question, but as we’re in a methods course please develop a methodology for how you might study women in Carolina María de Jesus’ circumstances in Brazil or the LA area who collect scrap or recycle cans and bottles or other materials as a way to support themselves and their children. Write 6 interview questions that you would ask if you were to do this research project.
