British landscapes in the works of Maria Ondina Braga and Jorge de Sena: Issues of Identity in Crossing Borders

Dora Nunes Gago

Abstract


This article analyses the relationship between descriptions of English landscape and the configuration of the narrators’ identity in the works of two Portuguese writers: Maria Ondina Braga’s Estátua de Sal (Pillar of Salt, 1969) and Jorge de Sena’s Inglaterra Revisitada (England Revisited, 1986). We will focus on how the narrators’ views are reflected in the landscapes described, and how the image of the “other” relates to the constantly evolving identitary universes of the narrators.
