Title: Don Juan à procura de Um Amor Feliz. Reflexões sobre o romance de David Mourão-Ferreira
Authors: Castagna, Vanessa
Issue Date: 1999
Publisher: Padova, Editoriale Programma
Abstract: In this contribution we propose an interpretation of the novel Um Amor Feliz (1986) by the Potuguese David Mourão-Ferreira in the perspective of a possible revisitation of the Don Juan myth. In fact we try to demonstrate that the protagonist of the novel presents the Main characteristics of a traditional Don Juan. Morover, we try to elucidate the relations between this revisitation and the working out of a post-modernist discourse; in particular, we try to show how the metaliterary autoreflection proceeds from the association of the protagonist and narrator of Um Amor Feliz to the mythic seducer.
