Brazilian Literature

Pablo Nunes, in its intitled assay paraense Literature exists? , it affirms that ' ' the expression paraense literature, beyond being bashful excessively, wounds the universality, basic principle to any manifestation that if desires artstica' ' that the literary production of paraenses authors cannot only be assigned as ' ' exotic, regional, incapable to spread out feelings universais' '. Nunes concludes claiming that, if we were to apply native-adjective denominations to each region, we would have a supraspalling of Brazilian Literature, opting, then, for the term Brazilian Literature of Amazonian expression. Pantoja, to its turn, in its assay does not exist a paraense literature? , it believes the opposite of Nunes exactly: Not if it can, on behalf of the universalizao desire, to suppress the regional one. The universal one does not exist without the particular one, the national one does not exist without the regional one, in way that, on behalf of the first one, if cannot ignore as. Pantoja defends, therefore, the nomenclature Literature Paraense in detriment of that brother-in-law for Nunes in virtue to believe that it is necessary to distinguish the universal one in some way, either it by means of the term brother-in-law for Nunes (Brazilian Literature of Amazonian expression) or for the proper name Paraense Literature, has seen that both distinguish universal when assigning Brazilian literature (she is not the Frenchman or the North American, for example) or paraense literature (she is not the inhabitant of the state of Rio de Janeiro or the maranhense, for example). Therefore, as attempt to cure this complaint, Jose Guillermo Fernandes it considers which is not the adjusted term more, but yes the method most appropriate to choose which would be optimum term. It affirms that it is necessary that let us take in consideration the alteridade and identity slight knowledge, therefore ' ' the identity brings the mark of a collective speech, that obliterates voices that are not fit in it, what it becomes the concept of identity one alteridade' ' (2005: 183).
