Playwrights, artists, and writers were some of the most active participants in the Brazilian campaign to end slavery and created a range of works to inspire the public to join the cause. This course will explore the creativity of the abolitionist movement in Brazil by looking at fiction and drama of the period along with articles, cartoons, and poems from the popular press. We will examine how Brazilian abolitionists used popular literary themes to question notions of race and citizenship and critique the pace of political developments in the last two decades of slavery. We will also look at how actors and playwrights used their celebrity to popularize the issue on the Rio stage. Authors will include Machado de Assis, Aluísio Azevedo and Arthur Azevedo.
