1. RAFAEL DE PAULA TAVEIRA RODRIGUEZ MEIRE. [en] WITH BLOWS FROM MACHADO: FICTIONS, STYLES AND OBJECTS.

Degree: 2017, Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro

[pt] Esta tese propõe investigações sobre as relações entre as noções de estilo e agência dos objetos, tomando como intercessores privilegiados, nos termos de Gilles Deleuze, narrativas curtas e fragmentos da obra de Machado de Assis. A escolha por se trabalhar com contos desse autor se dá pelo fato de, aí, surpreenderem-se linhas de força e problemas que, singularmente corporificados na escrita machadiana, permitem contágios fecundos com certas vertentes do pensamento contemporâneo. A tese explora, em especial, a potência dos contos escolhidos para catalisar os debates hoje travados em torno da revisão filosófica e antropológica da partição natureza-cultura no ocidente. O trabalho de criação teórica aqui empreendido busca relacionar, nesse âmbito, os tópicos da vida dos objetos (agora saídos do mundo dito inanimado e dotados de agência) e do estilo (noção que, na contramão de definições clássicas estritamente textuais, compreende-se agora como embate de forças produzido nas relações entre corpos provenientes de domínios heterogêneos). Em conexão com o trabalho teórico, a tese propõe, ainda, revisões críticas de alguns vetores comumente atribuídos à ficção machadiana, tais como a desvalorização do mundo das aparências, a centralidade de valores eminentemente modernos, e o pessimismo. Buscando alimentar a discussão também por meio de suas próprias estratégias de composição, a tese explora possibilidades de trânsito entre o ensaístico e o epistolar.

[en] This thesis proposes investigations into the relationships between the concepts of style, and the agency of objects, taking as privileged intercessors, in Gilles Deleuze s words, short narratives and fragments from the work of Machado de Assis. The choice of working with this author s short stories is due to the fact that they present guidelines and problems that, uniquely embodied in Machado s writing, allow fertile contagion with certain strands of contemporary thought. The thesis approaches, especially, the strength of the chosen short stories in order to catalyze the debates held today around the philosophical and anthropological revision of the partition between nature and culture in the West. The work of theoretical creation undertaken here seeks to relate, in this context, the topics of the life of objects (now out of the so-called inanimate world and endowed with agency) and style (a notion which, contrary to strictly textual classic definitions, is now understood as a clash of forces produced in the relations between bodies from heterogeneous domains). In connection with the theoretical work, this thesis also proposes critical revisions of certain aspects commonly attributed to Machado s fiction, such as the devaluation of the world of appearances, the centrality of eminently modern values, and pessimism. Seeking to fuel the debate, also by means of its own composition strategies, the thesis explores the possibilities of transit between the essayistic and epistolary genres.
