Brazilian Literature - CHLAL3

Starting to explore Cambridge History of Latin American Literature published in 1996. Below are names I got from Introduction to Volume 3 (on Brazilian Literature). Only Portuguese author's names / works are included. I will again do atrocity to the transliteration. Bolded are what seems to be relatively highlighted by the article.

 

Portugal:

- Eca de Queiroz

- Fernando Pessoa

- Jose Saramago

 

Brazil

- Joaquim Maria Machado de Asis's Memorias postumas de Bras Cubas (1881), Dom Casmurro (1900), and Quincas Borba (1891)

- Euclides da Cunha's Os sertoes (1902)

- Joao Guimaraes Rosa's Grande sertao,veredas

- Graciliano Ramos

- Jorge Amado

- Clarice Lispector

- Nelida Pinon

(the above mentioned in the opening part of the essay)

- Manuel Antonio de Almeida's (1831-1861) Memorias de um sargento de milicias (1855)

- Jose de Alencar's Iracema (1865), O gaucho (1870), and O sertanejo (1875)

- Aluisio Azevedo's (1857-1913) O mulato (1881), O cortico (1890)

- Oliveira Vianna

- Paulo Prado's Retrato do Brasil (1928)

- Gilberto Freyre's Casa grande e senzala (1933)

- Graca Aranha's Canaa

- Jose Enrique Rodo's Ariel (1900)

- Goncalves Dias

- Antonio de Castro Alves

- Augusto dos Anjos

- Joao da Cruz e Sousa

- Afonso Henriques de Lima Barreto (d. 1922)

- Manuel Bandeira

- Carlos Drummond de Andrade

- Mario de Andrade's Macunaima (1928)

- Oswald de Andrade

- Jose Lins do Rego

 

Brazil (Literary) History

- Ambrosio Fernandes Brandao's Dialogos das grandezas do Brasil (1618)

- Sebastiao da Rocha Pita's Historia da AMerica portuguesa 1500-1724 (1730)

- Domingos Jose Goncalves de Magalhae's "Ensaio sobre a historia da literatura do Brasil" (1836) and Suspiros poeticos e saudades (1836)

- Francisco Adolfo de Varnhagen's Historia geral do Brasil (1854)

- Joao Manuel Pereira da Silva

- Joaquim Norberto de Sousa e Silva

 

Note: within the framework of this site (which selects key canonical texts up to ~1900; and as I write now in 2013, I have decided to keep my sight as far as 1920 as the end point), the only relevant Brazilian Portuguese authors are likely to be Machado de Asis and Euclides de Cunha.
