MaisPB • Tradition of collecting

In three books, Marcos Cavalcanti de Albuquerque, A decide by occupation and our colleague on the Academia Paraíba de Letras, declares himself a author, storyteller and collector of custom. I discuss with books Stories, legends and myths (2021), Bottle – Tristan and Angelica (João Pessoa: Mídia Gráfica Editora, 2022), and Mt (See Pessoa: Idea, 2020)All within the first version, written through the pandemic, which, as an alternative of the harmful face, reveals the potential of creativity, who is aware of tips on how to take benefit of adversity.

in Stories, legends and Mythology, apparently the writer’s model, since there aren’t any editorial references, is on the similar time the teller of the “tales” and the person involved with saving and fixing the traditions of his land on printed paper, Mamanguape Valley. In the primary half of this quantity, known as Stories By the writer, there are biblical tales, notes on Baa da Tricao and surrounding historical past, in addition to picturesque tales, of which “The Drunkard and the Judge” reveals the favored verve of one of essentially the most well-known figures. on this planet. Typical of those that can stay in cities and villages – drunk and his tirades, with a combination of braveness and presence of thoughts.

“O Piece of Chicken” shouldn’t be left behind, celebrating the tastiest half of the rooster, if not the tastiest, generally known as “sobrekou” and, oddly sufficient, for its scholarly identify, the Greek, “rump”. The story, advised with a touch of evil, which I’ll go away unexplained so the reader can higher admire it, instantly despatched me again to episode one. L’AssomoirEmile Zola’s novel, wherein a personality admires this half of the hen’s physique, invokes it by means of the reminiscence introduced up by its form – A bishop’s hat.

Second half of Stories, legends and myths, reveals the writer involved with collecting myths and legends of the area the place he was born. One of them is “A botija buried”, which is the nucleus to be developed within the novel. Bottle – Tristan and AngelicaIn addition to the forged of mysterious and enchanted characters that kind widespread reminiscence, encourage, on the similar time, concern and respect for the unknown – Harry Hand, Water Mother, Werewolf, Witches, Mermaids, Potatoes, Botos, Haja-Pau… all “haunted” has created a world of mysteries and narratives generally known as the, the best consultant of which, I want to consider, is the horrible and terrifying “Midnight Procession”.

Bottle – Tristan and Angelica There is an extension of the “story” of the bottle, which is already, as we mentioned, in Stories, legends and myths. Marcos Cavalcanti de Albuquerque tailored the narrative construction discovered there right into a novel, with an account revealed in Corrio da Paraba signed by journalist Hilton Goveia de Araujo on September 26, 1995, primarily with a widely known legend. Countryside, with a love story, whose conflict of social impossibilities has the inevitable parts of impotent want, and with a authorized half, the place a lawman seems behind the writer.

“The Night of Burnt Straw”, a brief story already introduced Stories, legends and mythsIn reality, the nucleus of which is the novel Monte-More. Despite the story concerning the founding and enlargement actions of the Lundgren group, in Valle do Mamanguape, which is a vital reality for our historical past, Marcos Cavalcanti de Albuquerque tries to begin his novel with the outline of the night time of burnt straw, which provides. Your writing is a dynamic that technically throws the reader into the “media’s race” story. Finding himself within the center of an already ongoing plot, the reader turns into and tries to seek out out what motivated the episode and what its penalties can be.

In a well-woven plot, Marcos Cavalcanti de Albuquerque reveals that when progress is made with the blows of the axe, it comes on the expense of the poorest, particularly on the expense of the remainder of the indigenous inhabitants, and above all, on the expense of the surroundings. . Surrounding this progress are tales of discrimination, treachery, homicide, conspiracy politics and naturally the ambition for energy, which leads man to the worst follies.

Monte-More It remains to be alternative for these like me who wish to learn about our historical past, particularly Mamanguape Valley. The historical past that makes us see the emergence of the Rio Tinto, named after the colour of its water and the substitute of the previous identify Monte-More, and concerning the binomial improvement/stabilization of the area from the institution of the Lundgren group that lived there. For its heyday and its downfall.

In its heyday, Rio Tinto had a cine-theatre for 1800 folks, music faculties and a tennis membership, and was known as the longer term Manchester of the Northeast by household group chief Frederico Ludgren. He additionally acquired a go to from President Getulio Vargas in 1933. During its decline, it grew to become identified sarcastically by the longer term Manchester of the North East…

Composing his e book in three components – “A Noit da Straw Burn”, “From Monte-More to Río Tinto” and “Historias e Narratives Potiguaras” – Marcos Cavalcanti de Albuquerque returned, on this third half, to the care of native custom. , with a group of myths woven there over the centuries. For us, it’s a matter of utmost significance, as a result of in a rustic with wealthy traditions, the gathering of what makes up our tradition should be carried out, preserved and transmitted, with out which we have no idea who we’re. Marcos Cavalcanti de Albuquerque, “His candy secular land”, with these works centered on his “mamanguape de yore”, reveals the best way to know tips on how to discover and acknowledge our identification.
