Title: The clandestine sociology of Antonio Candido
Author: Ramassote, RM
Abstract: This text discusses the relationships between literary criticism and the social sciences informing some of Antonio Candido's best known essays. Based oil an analysis of 'Dialectic of malandroism' (1970) and 'From slum to slum' (1993), the article identifies and discusses the influence of particular sociological models on these essays, linking these models to concerns found in the author's own sociological work and to various themes developed by the Sao, Paulo School of Sociology. In the final part, I suggest that much of Antonio Candido's critical Output can be understood as an intimate and creative dialogue with questions related to central themes of Brazilian social thought, founded on his involvement in two distinct disciplinary traditions - all authorial project whose scope combined social essayism and literary criticism, social sciences and aesthetic analysis.
