Crítica social no discurso narrativo de “O último pesadelo” de Lília Momplé

Bruna Cielo Cabrera, Anselmo Peres Alós

Abstract


This paper establishes a parallel between the social critique about the nation’s memory of Angola in the 1960s, and the storyteller’s manifestations against the impartiality (expressed by judgments of value and a "critical omniscience") inserted in Lilia Momplé’s short story "O último pesadelo" in the book Ninguém matou Suhura. Based on the scenes of violence from the colonial regime in Angola and analytical positions expressed by the narrator, the goal is to point out these manifestations of narrative voice in postcolonial fictional portrait and unite them to a theoretical question of imperialism and colonialism.
