O devir no feminino em José Craveirinha

This essay seeks to explore the plurality and diversity of dimensions and roles that women assume in José Craveirinha’s literary imagination. The powerful and appealing social and cultural panel formed there stems from the experiences and irreverence of the author, which we propose to revisit here. Craveirinha’s writing showcases female presences pontificating in a universe that tends to be phallocratic, when not tainted by prejudice against women. Hence, we not only are able to regard images in which women appear centralized, valued, and desired, but can also see Craveirinha’s writing denouncing how women are wronged, marginalized, and dehumanized.
