Anita Garibaldi: A Brazilian Heroine in North American Literature
Marina Luísa Rohde, Gilmei Francisco Fleck
The overarching theme of the present paperwork lies in casting some light to the historic Brazilian character of Anita Garibaldi (1821–1849) in order to draw the public’s attention to distinct perspectives other than the official one. So as to achieve these goals, the romance studied was written by Dorothy Bryant in 1993 and it is called Anita, Anita. With a flowing language, the author was able to present Anita herself, the idealist, the wife, the lover, and the mother. In this literary work she is not shown as a simple shadow of Giuseppe Garibaldi (1807–1882), her husband, anymore, she is a sensible and political woman who wants to follow what she considers to be fair. Thus, this study consists in a brief discussion concerning possibilities for the historical novel writing and how the preferences chosen by the author might affect the perception of the characters and the historical past itself in the course of History.
