Blurb/Shorttext:
This work highlights the importance given to corporeal perception in Noll‘s literature as the ground upon which one becomes conscious of oneself, of the world and of others, discussing also the way in which Noll’s narrative places sensorial experiences at the very core of the aesthetic experience both as a foundational process upon which the writer becomes able to create his work as well as the medium through which the reader becomes invited to interpret, from his own perceptual framework, the story narrated. The book pays also attention to the Brazilian socio-political and cultural contexts of the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, showing how Noll‘s literary production distances itself from and even criticises the popular and commercially successful documentary genre known as romance reportagem which used literature as a form of political propaganda.
