Um elenco dos obstáculos

Osvaldo Manuel Silvestre


The essay aims to conceive some of the obstacles that the literary, critical, academic and institutional triumph of modernism poses both to “1922 Modernism” and to Brazilian literature before and after the Week of Modern Art. This is done by comparing the fields of literature, music and plastic arts, and by considering the possible effects on the study of literature in Brazil of a breakdown of the critical system founded upon the triumph of modernism.


O ensaio tenta conceber um elenco dos obstáculos que o triunfo (literário, crítico, escolar e institucional) do modernismo coloca para se pensar quer o “Modernismo de 22” quer a literatura brasileira anterior e posterior. Procede-se por comparação entre os campos da literatura, da música e das artes plásticas e tenta-se pensar o que seria o efeito, sobre o estudo da literatura no Brasil, de uma desagregação do sistema crítico fundado sobre o triunfo do modernismo.
