11.2 O Conquistador de Almeida Faria: um romance de aprendizagem

Eliane de Alcântara Teixeira

Abstract

This article analyzes the novel O Conquistador, by Almeida Faria, trying to establish it as a true Bildungsroman, that is, an apprenticeship novel. Having adopted this narrative genre, the Portuguese author intends to show the spiritual evolution of his protagonist, Sebastião, who, unlike his historical namesake, has replaced warlike arts for  ars amatoria. This article studies also the stages in the protagonist’s development, as if they constituted an apprenticeship or ascesis in search of perfection.
