GIL, María Esperanza. La construcción de una "lengua brasileña" en Amar, verbo intransitivo, de Mário de Andrade. Anclajes [online]. 2010, vol.14, n.2, pp. 109-126. ISSN 1851-4669.
This article presents a critical reading of the novel Amar, verbo intransitivo from de Brazilian writer Mario de Andrade. Th is novel was published in 1926 and it was written during the Modernist Movement, when one of the main objectives of art was the renewal of literary language. Th rough this analysis, we will be addressing some of the techniques utilized by the author to arrive at this characteristic renewal, as well as studying what critics and the author himself called "Brazilian language". Th is expression -Brazilian language- leads to a linguistic construction that, through the manipulation of lexical and syntactic elements, tries to approximate literary language to Brazilian Portuguese, while distinguishing itself from Portuguese from Portugal. By way of textual analysis and establishing relation with other Andrade´s works, mainly his mail correspondence, this article attempts to fi nd links between the novel and its contexts, which is literary Avant Garde from the 20th decade. In this way, the relationship between Andrade´s techniques and another modernistic proposals is juxtaposed.
