PAIVA, Marco Aurélio Coelho de. Another modernist hero. Tempo soc. [online]. 2008, vol.20, n.2, pp.175-196. ISSN 0103-2070.

Based on the analysis of the debut novel by Abguar Bastos, Terra de icamiaba, this article attempts to show how the splitting of the modernist movement into different aesthetic and political tendencies was apprehended by authors from regions located far from the country's cultural centres. While the 1922 movement represented an attempted rupture with literary nostalgia, it ended up becoming a decisive moment in the formation of a literary field in Brazil. Abguar Bastos's first novel acquires importance here because of its divergence from Mário de Andrade in relation to the themes of nationality and regionalism, allowing the debates over the movement's directions to reverberate in other regions and other literary circles.

Keywords : Literary Field; Literary Creation; Nationality; Regionalism.
