Abstract

This book examines the reception of the first two novels by Eça de Queirós, which introduced naturalistic aesthetics in Portugal. Without entirely breaking away from Balzacian realism, Émile Zola, in his saga of the Rougon-Macquart, established a set of technical narrative procedures, imported from Flaubert’s Madame Bovary, which would define the prevailing poetics of the novel in Europe until the end of the 1880s. Eça's early adoption of these rules (namely narrative impersonality, internal characterization and free indirect speech), first in O Crime do Padre Amaro and later in O Primo Basílio, make the Portuguese writer the first naturalist novelist outside French territory. The theoretical and critical reflection on the Portuguese naturalist movement is accompanied by the reproduction of the main pieces published in the Portuguese press on these Queirosian novels.

Abstract

Textual criticism is a philological speciality centered in a work-in-progress of text-production and/or its transmission. Textual criticism works on the author manuscripts and all the marks left by him, which document the process of textual representation conditioned by the author's intention and the linguistic system he/she uses, since the most primitive form (sketches) to its terminal level or final form. Also, textual criticism considers the existent manuscript (if present), or conjecture its original form (if absent), and then the tradition derived from it, studying the departures from the tradition when compared to the original (if present); or reconstruct the closest lesson to what the original would have been (if absent). The present essays document a set of theoretical reflections and practices of the author on textual criticism in general, and genetics in particular, applied to medieval manuscripts and to manuscripts of great Portuguese writers such as Camilo Castelo Branco, Antero de Quental, Eça de Queiroz, Fernando Pessoa or Vitorino Nemésio.

Abstract

The treatise De esu carnium (On eating of flesh) came to us in the form of two logoi, with multiple lacunae, especially in the second logos. By recovering themes already developed by the Pythagorean doctrine, by Xenocrates, by Theophrastus or by the Stoics, Plutarch argues about the nature of living beings, within the scope of the relationship between man and animal. Like other treatises of the corpus plutarcheum, such as Bruta animalia ratione uti (The animals are rational), better known as Gryllus, or De sollertia animalium (On the intelligence of animals), the narrative is developed around questions related to the nature and psychology of animals, such as the possibility that virtue and reason exist in them. Plutarch defends the philanthropy and the generosity with which all living beings should be treated, thus opposing simple utilitarianism or the problematic principle of necessity. Being one of the zoological treatises, De esu carnium is also a rhetorical text, because Plutarch constructs, in opposition to the Stoics, an argumentative theory that supports the idea that eating meat is παρὰ φύσιν (‘against nature’).
