A crise da esquerda norte-americana em 'The Book of Daniel', de E.L. Doctorow
Keywords in Portuguese
E.L. Doctorow
Esquerda norte-americana
Literatura e história
Literatura norte-americana
Pós-modernismo
Abstract in Portuguese
A problemática do narrador na teoria do romance aumenta à medida que as relações humanas se tornam mais complexas e abrangentes. Daí a importância de mostrar ao público o escritor norte-americano E.L. Doctorow e seu romance The Book of Daniel de 1971, uma vez que através da figura do narrador, neste romance, tem-se acesso às suas diferentes visões da História norte-americana. O sujeito no pós-modernismo (período em que o romance está inserido) perde a sua capacidade de organizar a narrativa de maneira homogênea, e esta assume, mais do que nunca, o caráter de narrativa fragmentária e de difícil vinculação com o tempo. Só resta, então, ter acesso a esta "realidade" histórica por meio de imagens e estereótipos proporcionados pelo narrador da história, daí o nosso interesse em mostrar como estas diferentes vozes da narração veiculam o conteúdo histórico pungente da narrativa, isto é, o comunismo dos anos 30 e 40 e a sua versão mais radical nos anos 60 e como isto pode contribuir para a discussão da relação entre narração e História.

Abstract in English
The question of the narrator in the theory of the novel develops into a central issue as human relations become broader and more complex. Hence the importance of introducing to the readers the North-American writer E. L. Doctorow and his novel The Book of Daniel, written in 1971, in which, through the narrator, one is presented with his different views on the North American History. The subject in post-modernism (when the book was written) is no longer able to organize the narrative homogeneously, which becomes fragmentary and time problematic. Thus, this "historical reality" is only available through the images and stereotypes provided by the narrator, and our aim in this study is to show how these different voices (of the narrator) convey the historical content of the narrative, i.e, the comunism of the 30s and 40s, and its later radical version of the 60s, and how this analysis contributes to the discussion of the relationship between narration and History.
