Description The publication in 1941 of Stefan Zweig’s Brazil. A Land of the Future (Brasilien. Ein Land der Zukunft) was met both with great enthusiasm and harsh criticisms. Many reviewers thought that Zweig’s view of the country was too exotic, naive, idealistic, utopian, and even the result of the propaganda efforts carried out by the Vargas administration. In an attempt to understand and bridge the gap between Zweig’s idea of Brazil and the country’s «reality», this article analyzes the text hand in hand with Zweig’s memoirs and other of his non-fiction works from the perspective of his utopian thinking and ethical commitment to the notions of freedom, peace, cosmopolitanism, tolerance, and common understanding.
A publicação em 1941 de Brasil, um país do futuro (Brasilien. Ein Land der Zukunft), de Stefan Zweig, foi recebida com um grande entusiasmo e com as críticas mais duras. Muitos críticos pensaram que a visão que Zweig tinha do país era exótica, ingênua, idealista e utópica demais, refletindo até o resultado dos esforços de propaganda realizados pelo governo Vargas. Na tentativa de compreender e preencher o vazio entre a ideia que Zweig tinha do Brasil e a «realidade» do país, este artigo analisa o texto junto com as memorias de Zweig e outros trabalhos de não-ficção a partir da perspetiva do seu pensamento utópico e do compromisso ético das noções de liberdade, paz, cosmopolitismo, tolerância e entendimento comum.
