Imagens de um poeta e cônsul diplomático: o Brasil visto por António Feijó

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



Diplomat in 1886, António Feijó was placed in Rio de Janeiro, Rio Grande do Sul and Pernambuco. His stay in Brazil until 1890 was cultural and literarily fruitful. However, the separation of the Atlantic led to the nostalgia and the pursuit of cross-cultural comparison. In his private letters, published in the meantime, we can extract a series of images from Brazil in late nineteenth century. There are European representations away from their homeland. Critically and without diplomatic filters, this author builds several visions of the new country, in which he feel constantly exiled or outlawed from his beloved home country.
