Abstract

The article discusses aspects of the contemporary Brazilian literary field, focusing on the most recent tendencies and positions of writers and critics. Arguably, substantial changes have occurred in the way writers relate to the public sphere as well in the way cultural and scholarly capital is acquired. In the field of criticism, the problem of its discursive restrictions, in relation to what happens with writers, is considered.
