Paisagens interiores: representações do norte do Brasil na viagem de Rocha Pombo

Alexandra Lima da Silva


This article proposes to analyze the travel that Rocha Pombo held to the north of Brazil, in 1917. Seeks to understand the crossing as a watershed in the trajectory of the traveller, both in the possible revision of their writing, as well as in the struggle for legitimacy as an author. Born in 1857 in Morretes, Paraná State, José Francisco da Rocha Pombo selected, as themes of his narrative, cities, landscapes, histories and people of the eleven states visited in five months of travelling. Thus, the encounter of a man from the south with the north area of Brazil approached realities seemingly so distant, but so close in the search of the constitution as a people and nation.
