Das Tulherias a Amarante: pode a história ser uma forma de literatura?
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Romance Studies and Classics.
2012 (Portuguese)In: Carnets: Revue Electronique d'Etudes Françaises, ISSN 1646-7698, 187-206 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [pt]

O texto concentrar-se-á no tratamento literário, histórico e biográfico dado a Napoleão pelo poeta e biógrafo português Teixeira de Pascoaes, na obra homónima publicada em 1940. Nessa biografia, Pascoaes faz uso de um excêntrico sistema filosófico, que aspira a reconstruir a história de modo particular – nas suas palavras, Napoleão é “o santo da História”. Mas há outro lado que parece salientar-se: Napoleão o homem, duplicado nele mesmo e em Bonaparte, duas entidades que reescrevem uma épica pessoal e histórica. Neste contexto, serão discutidas duas questões: i) o que leva um poeta e pensador consagrado a, no final da sua carreira literária, construir um complexo sistema biográfico no qual Napoleão é a figura central?; ii) quais são as consequências de se pensar, como Pascoaes faz implícita e explicitamente, que a história é uma forma de literatura?

Abstract [en]

This text will focus on the literary, historical and biographic treatment of Napoleon in Portuguese poet and biographer Teixeira de Pascoaes’ Napoleon, published in 1940. In this work, Pascoaes puts forward an eccentric philosophical system that aspires to rebuild history in a particular way – in Pascoaes’ own words, Napoleon is “the saint of History”. But there is also a side to him that seems to stand out: Napoleon the man, double-sided as himself and Bonaparte, two entities that rewrite a personal and historic epic. Two main questions will be addressed in this context: i) what does it take for a well-known poet and thinker to construe, towards the end of his literary career, a complex biographical system in which Napoleon stands as its central axis?; ii) which consequences can be drawn from thinking, as Pascoaes does both implicitly and explicitly, that history is a form of literature?
