Iracema a novel by José Martiniano de Alencar( Book )
334 editions published between 1865 and 2011 in 9 languages and held by 2,172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Jose de Alencar's prose-poem Iracema, first published in 1865, is a classic of Brazilian literature--perhaps the most widely-known piece of fiction within Brazil, and the most widely-read of Alencar;s many works. Set in the sixteenth century, it is an extremely romantic portrayal of a doomed live between a Portuguese soldier and an Indian maiden. Iracema reflects the gingerly way that mid-nineteenth cenury Brazil dealt with race mixture and multicultural experience. Precisely because of its nineteenth-century romanticism, Iracema strongly contributed to a Brazilian sense of nationhood--contemp

No Brasil no século 17, uma família de colonizadores portugueses, cujo patriarca é Dom Antônio, vive numa fortaleza construída próxima as terras dos índios Aimorés.

Explode entre eles uma paixão incondicional que irá unir duas culturas diferentes e fazer dessa aventura uma grande história de amor. Baseado no romance de José de Alencar, "O Guarani" é mais um sucesso do cinema nacional
Senhora : profile of a woman by José Martiniano de Alencar( Book )
129 editions published between 1697 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"It is a truth universally acknowledged ..." that a single woman in possession of a good character but no fortune must be in want of a wealthy husband - that is, if she is the heroine of a nineteenth-century novel. Senhora, by contrast, turns the tables on this familiar plot. Its strong-willed, independent heroine Aurelia uses newly inherited wealth to "buy back" and exact revenge on the fiance who had left her for a woman with a more enticing dowry. This exciting Brazilian novel, originally published in 1875 and here translated into English for the first time, raises intriguing questions about traditional gender relationships, the commercial nature of marriage, and the institution of the dowry. While true love and conventional marital roles triumph in the end, the novel still offers realistic insights into the social and economic structure of Rio de Janeiro in the mid-1800s. With its unexpected plot, it also opens new important perspectives on the nineteenth-century Romantic novel. -- Back cover

Ubirajara; lenda tupi by José Martiniano de Alencar( Book )

Debaixo das barbas neurastênicas e petulantes do Conselheiro Alencar, velho precoce, fácil triunfador num Estado de facilidades, reponta a sôfrega adolescência de todos os tempos, nossa e dele próprio, tão encartolada, abafada antes da hora. Reponta a aspiração de heroísmo e o desejo eterno de submeter a realidade ao ideal, comenta Antônio Cândido. A parte da ficção histórica, testemunho da sua busca de temática nacional para o romance, concretizou-se em duas direções: os romances de temas propriamente históricos e os de lendas indígenas publicado em 1874 (Iracema, Ubirajara). Por estes últimos, Alencar incorporou-se no movimento do indianismo na literatura brasileira do Séc. XIX, em que a fórmula nacionalista consistia na apropriação da tradição indígena na ficção, a exemplo do que fêz Gonçalves Dias no lirismo
