Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0292704380, Paperback)

In 1881, Brazilian Aluisio Azevedo published "Mulatto," a scathing expose of his native city, Sao Luis do Maranhao. Polemic as well as love story, it brought him much notoriety and is generally considered the first Brazilian naturalist novel. Set before the abolition of slavery and the establishment of the first republic, "Mulatto" tells the story of Raimundo, a young Brazilian of liberal ideas. Kept in ignorance of the identity of his mother and the secret of his mixed birth, Raimundo is educated in Europe and, upon returning to Brazil, struggles against the provincial and bigoted society he encounters. "Mulatto" reveals its author's opposition to both the clergy, whose corruption and influence he denounced, and the racist agrarian society still dependent upon slavery. This English translation of "Mulatto" was first published in 1990 by Fairleigh Dickinson University Press.
