EXTRAIT

En éditant leur recueil de contes populaires allemands, Deutsche Kinderund Hausmärchen (1812), les frères Grimm ouvrent une brèche où tout le monde s’engouffre, tôt ou tard, avec plus ou moins de succès. Leur collecte n’est pas un fruit du hasard ; derrière les Grimm, c’est tout le national-romantisme qu’on retrouve, et avant tout, l. a. théorie du relativisme culturel de Herder, son idée de l’« esprit du peuple » (Volksgeist), sa conviction que le génie est toujours nationwide et que celui du peuple constitue los angeles resource de toute fécondité artistique1. D’où, selon lui, l. a. nécessité des collectes, des études, de l. a. sauvegarde des traditions populaires. Or, qu’y a-t-il de plus nationwide que l. a. langue elle-même ? Si le langage représente l’expression immédiate, naturelle et spontanée de l’esprit du peuple, le langage le plus authentique serait forcément le langage populaire. Ceci est un element vital : en attirant l’attention sur l. a. langue, Herder déplace les accents d’une façon significative : ce n’est plus uniquement l’intrigue, l’histoire qui compte, mais également l. a. forme – ainsi, l’œuvre appropriate de los angeles culture orale start à être considérée comme un texte.

Ana Silvia Scott's Portugueses, Os (Portuguese Edition) PDF

By Ana Silvia Scott

Os portugueses, esses desconhecidos. Desconhecidos? Sim, pois quem acredita que conhece os portugueses porque tem como vizinho o "português da padaria", come bacalhau e doces muito açucarados e leu trechos de Camões no colégio, de fato, não os conhece. Sua cultura é sofisticada, a literatura tem nomes como Fernando Pessoa e Saramago e, pasmem, nem todos eles se chamam Manoel, Joaquim ou Maria. Neste livro vamos conhecer a riqueza e as contradições desse povo que teve seu apogeu, um longo declínio e agora ressurge com força no mapa do mundo. Trata-se de um povo muito especial. Cinco séculos após ter conectado o Velho Mundo ao Novo, por meio das descobertas, dá por encerrado o ciclo e volta-se para a Europa como opção preferencial. Ao contrário do nosso, é um povo formal, quase cerimonioso, pelo menos nas cidades, talvez para compensar a rusticidade da gente do campo. Usam sua língua como se ainda fossem os únicos donos dela e riem de nosso acento "descansadinho". Conhecem nossas piadas sobre eles e fazem muitas sobre os brasileiros. Vale a pena conhecer de fato os portugueses neste livro instigante.
