Beschreibung:

Consuming Visions explores the relationship between cinema and writing in early twentieth-century Brazil, focusing on how the new and foreign medium
of film was consumed by a literary society in the throes of modernization. Maite Conde places
this relationship in the specific context of turn-of-the-century Rio de Janeiro, which underwent
a radical transformation to a modern global city, becoming a concrete symbol of the country's
broader processes of change and modernization. Analyzing an array of literary texts, from
journalistic essays and popular women's novels to anarchist treatises and vaudeville plays, the
author shows how the writers' encounters with the cinema were consistent with the significant
changes taking place in the city.
