Abstract

This study conducts a postcolonial rereading of Lima Barreto’s work in order to understand the themes discussed by him and how he relates them to the existing problems in Brazil of his time. The analysis engages with Barreto’s work in its entirety—novels, some of his tales and short stories—aiming to show how different elements of his work provide information to understand a postcolonial country, in theory, but that, at the same time, seems to have perpetuated the colonial structures in practice. Therefore, this study focuses on five themes in particular that have been recurrent in postcolonial studies: language, women, nationalism, social class and race, as they provide various elements needed to the discussion being undertaken and contribute to the rereading proposed in this research.
