The Private Autobiography of a Brazilian Feminist Writer

Only two women's names have routinely been attached to the momentous Semana de Arte Moderna: Anita Malfati, who saw the important Armory Show in New York in 1913 and was inspired to spearhead a similar show in São Paulo; and Tarsila do Amaral, whose impressive canvases have gone on to become, in the visual arts, veritable monuments of the Semana. However, there was a third woman: Patrícia Galvão. The text published as Paixão Pagu; a autobiografia precoce de Patrícia Galvão (Pagu's Passion: The Precocious Autobiography of Patrícia Galvão) is a private accounting of Galvão's life and feelings that she addressed to her son, Geraldo Galvão Ferraz, at his request. Necessarily, it is tinged with disillusionment about her relationship with the Communist Party in Brazil, a sense of exploitation over the notoriety she gained for her political imprisonment, and, most of all it would seem, bitterness over her failed marriage to Oswald de Andrade. As a letter addressed to Galvão's new lover, it is intensely confidential.
