O verso e o reverso da medalha em Lincoln de Gore Vidal

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In Lincoln, a historical novel published in 1984, Gore Vidal refines his politics of representation that focuses on the reconstruction of national memory through the revision of Abraham Lincoln’s historiography. In this essay I examine how Vidal revisits the myth created by the historical discourse. Moreover, I analyse the ideological implications of this rewriting process as far as the American political metamorphoses are concerned.
