About this book

Joining a timely conversation within the field of intra-American literature, this study takes a fresh look at Latin America by locating fragments and making evident the mostly untold story of horizontal (south-south) contacts across a multilingual, multicultural continent.

Reviews

"This is an example of inter-American literary scholarship at its most perceptive. Moreira deftly connects seminal works from both Mexico and Brazil and shows the reader how, on the question of their modern New World heritage, these profoundly influential New World texts compare and contrast with each other. In doing so, he anticipates a variety of additional readings involving both the United States and Canada. Literature and Cultural Relations Between Brazil and Mexico: Deep Undercurrents must be immediately regarded as 'required reading' for all inter-Americanists." - Earl E. Fitz, Professor of Portuguese, Spanish, and Comparative Literature, Vanderbilt University, USA

"Paulo Moreira's Literary and Cultural Relations Between and Mexico: Deep Undercurrents is a ground-breaking scholarly study that challenges issues of nationalist exceptionalism by pointing to the myriad cultural undercurrents between Brazil and Mexico from a perspective of curiosity, openness, and identification. Rather than national antagonism and tension, Moreira's intellectual coordinates, for uncovering the invisible linkages and cultural rapport frequently muffled by nationalist ideologies, stem from his sharpened focus upon transnational optics that point to how alterity across borders can lead to enriching experiences. With a well-documented and cogently written narrative, Moreira delves into the intercultural activities and literary relations between these two nations via a series of trenchantly interpretative chapters from colonial to contemporary literature." - Nelson H. Vieira, University Professor, Professor of Portuguese & Brazilian Studies, Chair, and Judaic Studies, Brown University, USA

'The 'deep undercurrents' in the title of this book is indeed a great metaphor. Moreira's imagination spins around these undertows in such a way that at the end of each chapter the reader, after having submerged, will re-surface and look back at writers and artists through the most comprehensive lenses, thus understanding how uncannily close Mexican and Brazilian cultures can be at times. It is a refreshing, welcome, and necessary contribution to Latin American studies.' - Pedro Meira Monteiro, Professor of Spanish and Portuguese, Princeton University, USA
