Gritos, cantos, pasajes y versiones de la historia en A morte e a morte de Quincas Berro d’água de Jorge Amado

Abstract : The publication of A morte and morte of Quincas Berro to d'Água (1961) by Jorge Amado confirms a turn in his narrative proposal, initiated three years previously with Gabriela Cravo e Canela (1958). The change is the use of innovative narrative strategies that rely on humor and critical distance, but without neglecting social criticism, a structuring element found in all of his literary production. In A morte ... Amado performs several intersections, both narrative and thematic, which allow the passage of a narrative voice to another, creating a polyphony which is in turn a trip to the speech of different social classes, particularly that of the media and the popular classes. The emergence of multiculturalism, in turn, allows the ambiguity of the passage from death to life and death again, through a history of the marginal who believe they have seen the rebirth of a deceased friend. These marginal, on the other hand, made a carnivalesque city tour of Bahía de Todos Santos, which allows them to break boundaries and realize crossings and voyages through urban and maritime geography.
