D. Carolina Michaëlis de Vasconcelos e a «Geração de 70»
Aníbal Pinto de Castro
AbstractUsing as a starting point largely unpublished documents on D. Carolina´s friendship with Antero de Quental and Oliveira Martins, the author attempts to underline the important role which she played in the intervention of some of the Northern members of the «Geração de 70» in Portuguese cultural life in the final quarter of the 19th century. The author demonstrates the importance of D. Carolina´s opinions for the intellectual and literary development of these two writers; the study then goes on to demonstrate her importance in disseminating Portuguese literature and culture in German intellectual circles; the path is thereby opened for studying her influence on the work of other contemporary writers and on their immediate continuators, both in poetic creation and in critical work on the respective results or on other works of Portuguese literature.
