Configurations identitaires dans Cascalho et Além dos marimbus de Herberto Sales

Abstract : Centered on the works of Baian writer Herbert Sales, this dissertation aims to analyze the founding elements of the universe of Chapada Diamantina as identity construction of the individual and his environment. We emphasize the importance of the study of the identity in the Brazilian literature, specifically the literature of Bahia through the analysis of the two novels that constitute the corpus of this research : Cascalho and Além dos marimbus.This study aims to demonstrate how dialogue is etablished between literature and other social discourses, from an interdisciplinary perspective. We highlight the place of the author in the context of Brazilian literature : the " literary project of Herbert Sales ". We analyse the social forms of identity constructions and their relation to the power, collusion and reciprocity of the state in these interrelationships, and how the support network to "coronelato" is articulated towards its legitimating project. We also focused on the identity constructions through the important contribution of orality, myths and popular beliefs in the local culture. We address the representations of territory in the fictional universe of Chapada diamantina, as a crossing space of diverse cultures, “territory of passage”, which embodies both the Eldorado and hell on earth. Finally, we highlight the different representations of nature and its epic dimension in the novels under analysis
