FERNANDES, Breno. “HERE EVERYTHING SEEMS LIKE IT WAS STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION, BUT IT IS ALREADY A RUIN”: REFLECTIONS ON THE POETICS OF FAILURE AS A TRAIT OF BRAZILIAN POST-MODERNITY. Nueva rev. Pac. [online]. 2020, n.72, pp.1-25. ISSN 0716-6346.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-51762020000100001.

This essay departs from a comparative reading among three Brazilian novels published in the second decade of the 21st century, whose narratives bring back the Brazilian military dictatorship (1964-1985): A noite da espera, by Milton Hatoum; K.: relato de uma busca, by Bernardo Kucinski; and Noite dentro da noite - uma autobiografia, by Joca Reiners Terron. Firstly, it is verified that these novels are in syntony with a poetics of failure, which has Roberto Bolaño as one of its main defenders in Latin America. Secondly, Walter Benjamin’s idea of an aesthetics of ruins, as dealt with by Katia Muricy, is compared to the idea of a poetics of failure, and this parallelism is used to think about the beginning of Brazilian post-modernity in 1968. The main conclusion is that the occurrence of both the May 68 events in France and the AI-5 in Brazil in a short while made the feeling of failure an important trait of the Brazilian post-modern spirit, and this is not bad as it may sound.

Palavras-chave : Allegory; Brazilian military dictatorship; Failure; Contemporary Brazilian literature.
