Abstract

O trabalho busca discutir discutir alguns dos traços da modernidade ainda presentes na complexidade da nossa experiência social e artística contemporânea, náo obstante a escritura de "pós" em relação ao moderno. Apresenta-se um levantamento de sentidos atribuídos à ideia de pós-moderno, bem como de eixos essenciais à sua crítica, consubstanciados pela voz de autores como Lyotard, Jameson, Eagleton e Rouanet, que estiveram, no curso do debate acerca do pós-moderno desde o século XX, em posições distintas. Como recorte, é evocada a discussão acerca das representações do nacional, um dos pilares da construção da modernidade e justamente um dos primeiros alvos das discussões pós-modernas em torno das formas de identificação e pertencimento do sujeito moderno. Associada a tais questões, considerando a especificidade do trabalho em literatura, apresenta-se a análise de algumas das tensões do moderno e do pós-moderno, em um romance contemporâneo brasileiro. This paper seeks to discuss some of the features of modernity still present in the complexity of our contemporary social and artistic experience, despite the writing of "post" in relation to the modern. It presents a survey of meanings attributed to the idea of the postmodern as well as essential aspects of its critique, embodied in the voice of such authors as Lyotard, Jameson, Eagleton and Rouanet, who have been in different positions in the course of the debate about the postmodern since the twentieth century. The scope of this study evokes the discussion of representations of the national, one of the cornerstones of the construction of modernity and one of the very first targets of postmodern discussions about forms of identification and belonging in the modern subject. Associated to these issues, and taking into account the specificity of working on literature, the analysis of some of the tensions of the modern and the postmodern in a contemporary Brazilian novel is presented.
