CASTRO, Gilberto de. The discourse of memory: a bakhtinian essay from Infância and São Bernardo by Graciliano Ramos. Bakhtiniana, Rev. Estud. Discurso [online]. 2011, vol.6, n.1, pp. 79-94. ISSN 2176-4573. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S2176-45732011000200006.
In Problems of Dostoevsky's Poetics, Bakhtin, in order to assert the characteristics of polyphonic aesthetics, excludes this possibility in several other genres of the novel. In the analysis which follows, we consider the reflection of the Russian author to think, in counterpoint with the polyphonic novel, the characteristics of romanesque speech of the autobiography in Infância e São Bernardo by Graciliano Ramos.
