Quem as Não Tem? (Como Escrever Cartas Faz de Nós Pessoas Melhores)

  • Ricardo Namora Center for Portuguese Literature, University of Coimbra

Abstract

This essay aims to deal with certain physical, material, symbolic and sensory features of the “letter” as an object, from its first occurrences as a function of the creation of a postal system, through the modeling that occurred in the nineteenth century and was crucial to its definition, until its contemporary forms. For that purpose, a series of pragmatic, philosophical and literary arguments will be discussed.
