The Narrator in Contemporary Brazilian and Angolan Literature: Bernardo de Carvalho and Ruy Duarte de Carvalho
This paper proposes a debate about the contemporary narrator focusing on the notion of migration in relation to the borders between some disciplines in the humanities.
Facing the attraction that certain places, particularly those closed spaces such as jungle, have for the narrators of novels such as Conrad's, this paper asks if it is possible to write about displacement and the limits of contemporary literature. For this exploration, the Brazilian writer Bernardo de Carvalho and the Angolan writer Ruy Duarte de Carvalho will exemplify new insights into old forms.
Keywords: contemporary narrator, migration
