Autofiction and History: the hybridity of the narrative pactin Rainy Season by José Eduardo Agualusa

In several studies conducted in the last two decades, among others by Manuel Alberca (2007) and Philippe Gasparini (2004), a satisfactory definition of autofiction is proposed. The essential feature of autofictional narrative is, especially in the case of the first author, the ambiguity of the narrative pact proposed by the writer. The hybridity of the narrative pact, however, is also one of the striking features of the historical novel, especially in cases where the protagonist is a historical character, because this circumstance orientates towards a referential reading. The novel Rainy Season(1996) of the Angolan writer José Eduardo Agualusa develops a plot over several decades of Angolan history by a narrator whose identity seems to coincide with the author’s and at the same time devotes more than half of the chapters to the biography of an invented Angolan poet, sharing thus both the features of autofiction and historical novel. My communication is intended to argue towards dual genre identity and to show some devices that make it possible.
