Synopsis

A Revista was a magazine that operated outside of the twin hegemonic centers of modernist culture in Brazil (São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro) in the 1920s. It published the transcript of a lecture given by Sigmund Freud (probably in the United States) and translated into Portuguese by Iago Pimentel. In his lecture, the Austrian psychoanalyst outlined his ideas about the “new science” and illustrated his talk with a case of hysteria that had previously been treated by the Viennese doctor Josef Buner. As was to be expected in publications of this nature, the text was truncated and the remaining portion was held over to be published in the following issue.

Synopsis

A Revista publica uma palestra realizada por Freud, provavelmente nos Estados Unidos. Nesta conferência traduzida para português por Iago Pimentel, o psicanalista austríaco informa sobre a "nova ciência" e apresenta  à platéia um caso de histeria tratado pelo médico vienense Josef Buner. O texto aparece incompleto e sua continuação, prevista para a edição seguinte da revista, não ocorre porque a revista encerra as atividades.

Annotations

For specialists in the field of psychoanalysis, and in spite of the lecturer’s fame, the text was simple and incomplete. The article was ultimately far more interesting because it showed that writers and publishers were keeping up with matters of international importance—in this case, the emergence of psychoanalysis—and reporting on them in Brazilian literary magazine that were, in their own way, also involved in the “modernist” movement of the 1920s. On the subject of Estética magazine (Rio de Janeiro, 1924), see the article by Charles Baudouin “Sobre uma esthética dynamista” [doc. no. 781887].

 

A Revista (Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais) enjoyed a brief lifespan of just three issues, published between July 1925 and January 1926. Its contributors included the São Paulo writer Mário de Andrade (number 1) and Ronald de Carvalho, and included the Freud lecture mentioned above, “Sobre a psycho-analyse,” and its second part published under the same title with the Viennese psychoanalyst’s name (numbers 2 and 3).

 

The editorial board at A Revista included the poet Carlos Drummond de Andrade, the memorialist Pedro Nava, and the future Brazilian politicians and ministers Milton Campos and Gustavo Capanema.
