Para além do colonizado e do subalterno: masculinidade num poema de Francisco José Tenreiro

Mário César Lugarinho


This essay examines the formation of masculine identities in the colonial context of Portuguese-speaking African literatures. It does so by considering the dialectic of the colonizer/colonized in relation to hegemonic and non-hegemonic masculinities and the emergence of the "new man" in the Estado Novo and African national liberation movements.
