Read full description of the books Macunaíma:Mario de Andrade publicou 'Macunaíma' em 1938. Por falta de editora, a tiragem do romance foi de apenas oitocentos exemplares, mas o livro foi festejado pela crítica modernista por sua inovação narrativa e de linguagem. Macunaíma é o herói sem caráter, símbolo de um povo que não descobriu sua identidade. Uma releitura do folclore, das lendas e mitos do Brasil, escrita numa linguagem popular e oral.
Read information about the authorMário Raul de Morais Andrade was a Brazilian poet, novelist, musicologist, art historian and critic, and photographer. One of the founders of Brazilian modernism, he virtually created modern Brazilian poetry with the publication of his Paulicéia Desvairada (Hallucinated City) in 1922. He has had an enormous influence on Brazilian literature in the 20th and 21st centuries, and as a scholar and essayist—he was a pioneer of the field of ethnomusicology—his influence has reached far beyond Brazil.
Andrade was the central figure in the avant-garde movement of São Paulo for twenty years. Trained as a musician and best known as a poet and novelist, Andrade was personally involved in virtually every discipline that was connected with São Paulo modernism, and became Brazil's national polymath. He was the driving force behind the Week of Modern Art, the 1922 event that reshaped both literature and the visual arts in Brazil. After working as a music professor and newspaper columnist he published his great novel, Macunaíma, in 1928. At the end of his life, he became the founding director of São Paulo's Department of Culture, formalizing a role he had long held as the catalyst of the city's—and the nation's—entry into artistic modernity.
