STAGING OF REALITY: THE END OR SUMMIT OF FICTION?

  • Vera Lúcia Follain de Figueiredo PUC-Rio
Keywords: fiction, realism, narration

Abstract

Starting in the past two decades of the XX century, the current of thought that minimizes the referential character of historic discourse rises to an outstanding position, which is a factor leading to the dilution of history, myth and fiction frontiers. The idea that everyone lives in fiction is being settled then, there being no reason for the anthropologist to assign to the object of his investigation, a mythical time different from his own. On the other hand, anxiety by the “fictionalization of everything” is increasing. The text starts from this tension, which punctuates contemporary theories, to ponder on the new current fiction regimes, and it takes Eduardo Coutinho’s and Maria Augusta Ramos’ films as the object of analysis.
