Introduction

(Contemporary Literary Criticism)

(Waldomiro Freitas) Autran Dourado 1926–

Brazilian novelist and short story writer.

Although Dourado is a major literary figure in Brazil, his work is not well known to the English-speaking world. The somber tone of Dourado's fiction results from his intense psychological examination of the alienated occupants of a small imaginary town in Minas Gerais.
