abstract

Chico Nhô by Jacinto represents a different look and a significant contribution to that considerable part of the Angolan literature that has Luanda as background, key character and beating heart of the universe it recreates and communicates. The analysis and discussion of the novel is inspired by the work of literary critic Luís Kandjimbo and philosopher Pedro F. Miguel, and aims at giving a contribution for shaping a closer-to-reality image of the contemporary Angolan literary scene. The focus on the traces of the native African culture in the novel proposes a different perspective from the classic studies on the African literatures in Portuguese, which usually  highlight the conflict between colonizers and colonized.
