AbstractIn this essay, I examine the uncanny in Mário de Sá-Carneiro's A confissão de Lúcio (1914). Drawing on Sigmund Freud, Julia Kristeva, and Homi Bhabha, I argue that the uncanny plays a crucial role in Sá-Carneiro's exploration of facets of both the queer experience and transnational mobility. On the one hand, it enables the destabilization of fixed gender identifications and the articulation of dissident sexual identities and politics. On the other hand, it brings into Sá-Carneiro's novella aspects of his own experience as an expatriate in the cosmopolitan urban space of Paris. Finally, Sá-Carneiro's embrace of the experience of the uncanny provides a point of departure to address hybridity within his broader literary production.
