Gustavo Costa Publishes Book on Rio de Janeiro

Visiting Assistant Professor of Spanish Gustavo Costa, PhD, published his book titled “Rio de Janeiro, reflection and image: A Comparative Reading of A Alma Encantadora das Ruas (The Enchanting Soul of the Streets – 1908) by João do Rio and Aguafuertes Cariocas (Etchings from the Port – 2013) by Roberto Arlt in light of reciprocal image of Brazil-Argentina”. 

This work (written in portuguese) aims to present the city of Rio de Janeiro and its main tourist attractions, based on the representative analysis of two authors and their respective works: João do Rio in “The enchanting soul of the streets” and by Roberto Arlt in “Aguafuertes cariocas”. It is an analysis of the social and urban points that are much relativized by the authors and how these issues are portrayed. The objective is to draw a comparative analysis of the customs of the brazilian capital in early 20th Century, portrayed by the authors.
