Germano Almeida, a ficcionalização do tempo da infância

Translated title of the contribution: Germano almeida, the fictionalization of childhood

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


If a literary work is independent from its author, the novel is not dissociated from a historical time in which it is written. Germano Almeida, Cape Verdean writer, assumes that his writing is inspired by fictionalized real facts. In his work, the writer recovers Cape Verde stories, through his experiences. We will focus on Regresso ao paraiso, his novel from 2015. Here, the childhood memory, of the island of Boa Vista, constructs the reality. This return to the past allows a historical reconstruction, although fictionalized, of an island apparently living on the edge of the colonial yoke.
