Entre o poder da palavra e a palavra do poder : a importância da imprensa na ficção histórica pós-moderna
Adriana Alves de Paula Martins
AbstractWith a view to showing how post-modern historical fiction discusses and problematizes the political and ideological power of the press, I will compare two novels: Empire (1987) by Gore Vidal and O Ano da Morte de Ricardo Reis (1984) by José Saramago. My aim is to examine how different approaches to the discussion on the making and the reception of newspaper articles influence the fictional modelization of historical figures. Thus, I will attempt to demonstrate how this process contributes in different ways to the revision and rewriting of the historiography of relevant historical personalities through the novels.
