SILVA, Daniele Cristina da  and  VILALVA, Walnice Aparecida Matos. Literature and memory: aesthetic configuration of the work De mim já nem se lembra, by Luiz Ruffato. Let. Hoje [online]. 2018, vol.53, n.4, pp.493-500. ISSN 1984-7726.

De mim já nem se lembra (2016), by Luiz Ruffato, it is an epistolary novel that presentes invaluable subjects to its author, that are, the family memoirs. In the present article, situating it in a contemporary literary production, a dialogue will be proposed about the multiplicity of voices that resonate with the narrators’ discourses and contribute to an aesthetic construction of the work. In the first part of the article, a brief reflection on the origin of the romanesque genre and its unfolding in epistolary romance will be presented to discuss the narrator figure and its configuration in the work in question, without the pretension of exhausting the possibilities of reading about this figure so important to the narrative. Later, it will deepen on the analysis of the novel evidencing its peculiarities as to the configuration of the familiar memories, having as main resource the Bakhtinian conception of the plurilingual in the novel. So, it will be evidenced how the time and space categories are relativized in the romanesque universe emphasizing the ingenuity of the work.

Keywords : contemporary literature; novel; memoirs.
