Abstract | Full Text

Thinking literature as an “object of art”, from a comparative approach, this paper proposes the conjunction of two fields: the Cultural Studies, with its contribution for the understanding of the concept of culture, and the Aesthetics, as a way to emphasize the relevance of literary studies as a space of unveiling of the culture and the world, as well. Therefore, this paper has as a theoretical reference the concept of “culture as invention”, as proposed by Roy Wagner, and the works by Vincent Jouve and Jean Grondin, once the literary text is understood as a space of multiple confluences and, consequently, not only a space of unveiling but also of invention and/or reinvention of the culture it is related to, bringing as an example the representation of the feminine in o remorso de baltazar serapião, by Valter Hugo Mãe.
