Abstract

MAGALHAES, Pablo Antonio Iglesias. Celestial flowers: José da Silva Lisboa's secret book, viscount of Cairú?. História [online]. 2012, vol.31, n.1, pp. 65-100. ISSN 1980-4369.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-90742012000100006.

The present article investigates the origins of a mysterious little book intitled Flores celestes colhidas entre os espinhos da sagrada coroa da augusta, veneravel e soberana cabeça do divino e immortal rei dos seculos Jesus Christo, of authorship of the enigmatic bahiense poet Jose Cortez Sol Posto, also known as Cigano da Bahia. The inquiry demonstrates that, under the layer of merciful poetries, the confessions of one of the most representative personages of the History of Brazil in century XIX are hidden.

Keywords : Colonial Literature; Conspiracy of the Tailors; Religious Poems.
