Vergílio Ferreira’s novels and the influence of cinema
Vergilio Ferreira, one of the most important writers of the last century in Portugal, reveals a very interesting relationship with Cinema. In his novels, we may ask if his connection with the Neo-Realism movement or with the Existencialists really influenced the writing techniques. In fact, Neo-Realism was a movement that influenced the writer’s production above all because it had an epocal (historical, aesthetic, literary, and ideological) justification. Could the writer have found in the cinema structural marks with which he impregnated not only his narrative technique but also his ideological vectors? We can clearly state that the author has an interesting dialogue with cinema techniques and often they reveal themselves in his writings.
Key words: Vergílio Ferreira, Portuguese Literature, Novel, Cinema, Neo-Realism, narrative technique.
