Title: The Indigenous Voice In Meu Tio O Iauarete By Guimaraes Rosa [a Voz Indígena Em "meu Tio O Iauaretê", De Guimarães Rosa]
Author: Nogueira E.S.
Abstract: this paper analyses the short story "Meu tio o Iauarete" by Guimaraes Rosa, considering the issue of vocality and aspects of brazilian indigenous culture: the use of terms from the Tupi-Guarani and the reference to the amazonian legend of Iara, a mermaid of the river whose voice, singing and beauty attract a young indian toward death. The short story is narrated by a hunter of jaguars who undergoes a metamorphosis into a jaguar. Thus, the narrative explores the boundaries between humanity and animality, human language and animal sounds without sense, as well as between the Portuguese and Tupi-Guarani.
