Across the modern Americas, any given nation would give utmost importance to its relationship with the United States. The United States and Brazil, in particular, share notable links. The USA courted Brazil during and after World War II because of the country's size and how it housed a rich collection of resources. Although the two countries fostered literary ties through various interfaces, a number of Brazilian artists adopted an antagonistic view to the United States. A different transamerican ethic is shown in Brazilian lyric—particularly in the use of English and various intertextual gestures—that presents connections to the two literary domains.

Keywords:   United States, Brazil, intertextual gestures, literary domain, transamerican ethic, Brazilian lyric
