  • Diamante Negro

    Anna Sewell

    Após uma infância feliz ao lado de sua mãe, um lindo cavalo preto é usado nas carruagens de uma família rica. Mas quando esse animal sofre uma fratura, ele rapidamente é considerado incapaz e passa de mão em mão... Sempre empenhado em fazer seu melhor, ele logo descobre a verdadeira natureza do ser humano.

    Esta obra emocionante foi utilizada por ativistas da época para conscientizar contra a crueldade empregada em animais. Ela foi retratada pelo cinema inúmeras vezes, como no filme "Black Beauty" (1994) da Warner Bros., estrelando Sean Bean, e no filme de mesmo nome distribuído pela Disney em 2020, com Mackenzie Foy e Kate Winslet.



    Anna Sewell (1820-1878) foi uma romancista inglesa importante pela influência que sua ficção teve na diminuição dos maus-tratos contra os animais. A condição de vida dos cavalos que ela utilizava com frequência para se locomover levou essa autora a escrever sua maior obra literária: "Diamante Negro". Essa história cativante inspirou o cinema diversas vezes, notadamente no filme "Black Beauty" distribuído pela Disney em 2020, com Mackenzie Foy e Kate Winslet, e no filme homônimo da Warner Bros. em 1994, com Sean Bean.
