La revue Minerva Brasiliense (1843-1845) et la fondation des Letras Pátrias au Brésil

Abstract : After the troubled years of the Regency (1831-1840), the project of creating the Letras Pátrias became a key element in the process of building a Nation undertaken since the independence of Brazil in 1822. The importance of the Letras Patrias in the imperial capital city, Rio de Janeiro, was best exemplified by the fame of the contributors to Minerva Brasiliense and the high quality of the articles published in this journal. It was founded by men of letters who engaged in the public space to promote the virtues of constitutional Empire and to defend a patriotic conception of literary creation. In spite of their great ambitions, after merely two years of existence, the review suddenly ceased to be published. Whereas the Minerva Brasiliense is certainly well-known in 19th -century Brazil, its relative short life and limited distribution point to the weaknesses of its editorial model as well as the limits of a very elitist conception of the Letras Pátrias, which characterised the budding national literature in Brazil.
