Bolero: Uma estética do espetáculo

Cláudia Helena Ribeiro Pessanha

Resumo


This article analyses Bolero, Victor Giudice’s first novel. Its aim is to show how this
Brazilian author, who has also been critic of music and literature, develops along his
fiction a poetics of his own, which consists of his ideas about art in general and
literature in particular. Its fragmented structure tells a lot about what can be said to
be the author’s conception towards the critical function of art. In this way, the novel
is a perfect fulfillment of its author’s project of developing a critical perspective in
relation to an anti-democratical society through an artistic language. In order to
demonstrate the presence of this poetics in this novel I’ll analyse some fragments in
which Giudice refers to music, poetry, pantomime, drama, painting, cinema e even
to carnival as a way of implementing his social critics through a language that is
essentially artistical.
