My project focuses on Brazilian writer João do Rio (1881-1921), particularly his work as a cronista and his approach to the Rio de Janeiro underworld, bringing the marginalized portions of the population to the spotlight. Through these crônicas I aim to identify the place occupied by nightlife in João do Rio’s writing and the political implications of this representation in the turbulent context of the First Brazilian Republic.
