This study focused on the strategies adopted by the narrator to tell the experienced in the text O livro dos guerrilheiros – 2nd edition from the De rios velhos e guerrilheiros (2009) Trilogy, written by Luandino Vieira. The hypothesis of this study is that the purpose of narrating the experienced might be thought as a type of “self-writing”, on Judith Butler’s perspective. The “self-writing” is the narrator’s choose to tell his story and the story of the guerrillas fighter imbued with an ethical value that involves a commitment to himself, to the other and to the History of Angola.
