This project is part of an ampler study which has been running for five years. It intends to map the space reserved to Camilo Castelo Branco in the Portuguese literary canon, as well as the main interpretative tendencies tied throughout the Camilian studies. Based on this study, which was developed in a partnership with the Portuguese Literature Post Graduation Program of the "Faculdade de Letras da USP" and oriented by Prof. Dr. Paulo Motta Oliveira, it is supposed that the implantation of the novel in Portugal, due mainly to the efforts of the Camilian pen, was possible thank to the dialogue which this pen had with the 18th C portuguese narrative tradition.
