Literatura e Outras Artes

Construção da Memória em Angola e Moçambique

Series:

Edited By Ineke Phaf-Rheinberger, Ana Sobral and Selma Pantoja

Os ensaios neste livro conduzem o leitor através dos tópicos cruciais do pós-colonialismo de Angola e Moçambique, como refletidos nas suas literaturas, cinema, música e artes. O passado, na forma das tradições esquecidas / redescobertas ou da guerra, continua formando as maneiras nas quais estas nações articulam e negociam suas identidades. Enfatiza-se a cena particularmente vibrante de Luanda e, ademais, dedica-se atenção (à falta de) às traduções dos textos portugueses noutras línguas.

A viagem ao “outro” na literatura de Ruy Duarte de Carvalho

Ruy Duarte de Carvalho (1941–2010) was an eminent writer, scientist, and filmmaker in Angola. His search for the „other“ in his own country, which concentrated on the oral traditions of southwest Angola, can be seen in his documentaries and also in his feature film, Nelisita (1983). In his fictional trilogy, The Sons of Próspero, Carvalho explores this encounter between the „West“ and the „other“, drawing on Shakespeare’s The Tempest. He considers the contemporary world as an encounter of „others“, reconfigurating themselves in the twenty-first century. The first two texts of the trilogy focus on the Kuvale, of the Herero-group in the far southwest at the border of Namibia, whereas the third focuses on the Ganguela in the southwest and south. As they are all nomads and live from their livestock, oxen are the most precious resource, and thus the most important point of cultural reference.
