Uriel da Costa : reescrita de Agustina Bessa Luís
Maria de Fátima Marinho
AbstractIn this article, the author analyses the way in which Carolina Michaelis approaches the biography of the Oporto Jew Uriel da Costa, using style which is at oncc precise, but which curiously does not scorn fabrication, even if she States it openly, as in the case of iconic representation. This discourse, often modalized by dubitative expressions, led Agustina Bessa Luís, in a novel written sixty years later (in 1984), Um Bicho da Terra, to rework the figure of the figure of the tormented thinker and to transform him into a typical character of her novelistic gallery. This article studies this difference in perspective, thereby demonstrating the undeniable differences and the no less important similarities.
