Please have mercy on me
Take it easy on my heart

You keep tearing me apart
Would you please have mercy on me
I’m a puppet on your string
And even though you got good intentions
I need you to set me free

Until the philosophy which holds one race superior
And another inferior
Is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned,
Everywhere - May say war.
That until there is no longer
First class and second class citizens of any nation,
Until the color of a man's skin
Is of no more significance than the color of his eyes -
Me say war.
And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes
that hold our brothers in Angola, in Mozambique,
South Africa, sub-human bondage have been toppled,
Utterly destroyed -
Well everywhere is war -
Me say war.
War in the east, war in the west,
War up north, war down south -
War - war - Rumors of war.
And until that day, the African continent will not know peace.
We, Africans, will fight - we find it necessary -
And we know we shall win
As we are confident in the victory.

“Yes, Im Italian — but I'm not loud, I don't gesticulate and I'm not good with pizza”
I love my country, but I have no patriotic spirit and no national pride. What's more, I digest pizza poorly, I eat very little spaghetti, I don't speak in a loud voice, I dont gesticulate, I hate all mafias, I don't exclaim “Mamma mia!” National characteristics are simplifications that should be contested. Being Italian, for me, begins and ends with the fact that I speak and write in the Italian language.
Put that way it doesn't seem like much, but really it's a lot. A language is a compendium of the history, geography material and spiritual life, the vices and virtues, not only of those who speak it, but also of those who have spoken it through the centuries. When I say that I'm Italian because I write in Italian, I mean that Im fully Italian in the only way that I'm willing to attribute to myself a nationality. I don't like the other ways, especially when they become nationalism, chauvinism, and imperialism.
(Adaptado de Elena Ferrante, “Yes, I'm Italian — but I'm not loud, | don't gesticulate and I'm not good with pizza”, The Guardian, 24/02/2018.)
Transcrevem-se, a seguir, versos de canções brasileiras e de um poema de Vinícius de Moraes.
Assinale a alternativa que melhor exemplifica as afirmações de Elena Ferrante.

Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be
But baby, I've been, I've been praying hard
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be counting stars, yeah, we'll be counting stars
I see this life, like a swinging vine
Swing my heart across the line
And in my face is flashing signs
Seek it out and ye' shall find
Old, but I'm not that old
Young, but I'm not that bold
And I don't think the world is sold
On just doing what we're told
I feel something so right
Doing the wrong thing
I feel something so wrong
Doing the right thing
I couldn't lie, couldn't lie, couldn't lie
Everything that kills me makes me feel alive

 Nobel Committee: Bob Dylan ‘Changed Our Idea of What Poetry Can Be’
 If people in the literary world groan, one must remind them that the gods don’t write, they dance
 and they sing,” Swedish Academy say in award speech
 Bob Dylan was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature at a ceremony in Stockholm, Sweden Saturday,
 where the Swedish Academy’s Horace Engdahl explained in the presentation speech why the legendary singer-
 -songwriter was given an award usually reserved for authors, poets and playwrights.
 In the speech, Engdahl said Dylan “dedicated himself body and soul to 20th century American popular
 music, the kind played on radio stations and gramophone records for ordinary people, white and black: protest
 songs, country, blues, early rock, gospel, mainstream music.”
 “Recognizing that revolution by awarding Bob Dylan the Nobel Prize was a decision that seemed daring
 only beforehand and already seems obvious. But does he get the prize for upsetting the system of literature?
 Not really,” Engdahl said. “There is a simpler explanation, one that we share with all those who stand with be-
 ating hearts in front of the stage at one of the venues on his never-ending tour, waiting for that magical voice.”
 The Swedish Academy concluded their speech by taking note of the critics who opposed Dylan’s Nobel
 Prize win.
 “By means of his oeuvre, Bob Dylan has changed our idea of what poetry can be and how it can work,”
 Engdahl said. “If people in the literary world groan, one must remind them that the gods don’t write, they dance
 and they sing.”
 Following the speech, Patti Smith performed Dylan’s “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall.”

FANS BEG JUSTIN BIEBER TO CANCEL HIS CONCERT IN THE WAKE OF THE MANCHESTER ATTACKS
By Alex Riccardi - Yesterday at 4:23 pm
No one should have to live in fear but right now, in the wake of the Manchester attacks, some teens and young adults are scared. And you have a good reason. Bombs went off just minutes after Ariana Grande's performance in England taking the lives of 22 people and injuring many others. But, it's important to remember that concert venues and staff try to do everything they can to keep the audience members safe.
Ariana has officially postponed her "Dangerous Woman" until at least the beginning of June, however, there's no telling if she will cancel more shows after that. In the wake of all of this, fans are encouraging Justin Bieber to pull out of his performances in the U.K. The "Sorry" singer is set to headline at the British Summertime Festival on July 2nd. But, fans don't think it's a good idea.
They have been expressing their concern on social media and even starting the trend, #nopurposetour. One fan wrote, "@scooterbraun please. We're so worried about Justin's Security.... please please cancel Justin's purpose tour #NoPurposeTour." Another fan said, "Justin, please cancel Purpose Tour, we want you to be safe, we want you alive! We love you! #prayersforManchester #NoPurposeTour." This is absolutely heartbreaking. A third Belieber wrote, "#NoPurposeTourUK @justinbieber I don't want you to die, please do something."
Justin nor his manager Scooter Braun have yet to comment on the whole thing. However, we also must note that Scooter is Ariana's manager too. He definitely has his clients' best interest and their safety in mind. Now that Ariana has canceled some of her upcoming shows, Scooter definitely had a role in that decision. While fans may be scared for Justin, we have a feeling he is in good hands. If there was any chance of a threat or immediate danger, he wouldn't do the performance. However, the music can't be stopped because of evil in this world. Katy Perry, The Chainsmokers, and Lorde have all vowed to continue doing their upcoming shows in the wake of this tragedy.
