Da sátira obscena ao axioma do frei: poesia romântica e homoerotismo no Brasil (1850-1864)

Vagner Camilo


This paper addresses the emergence of homoerotic themes in the context of Brazilian romanticism, in poetic works obviously outside or on the margins of the official canon. It also examines the changes from the obscene and satirical verses to the lyric voice in the poems attributed to Moniz Barreto, Laurindo Rabelo and, with special emphasis, Junqueira Freire, author of the only lyric love poem about this theme at the time.
