This project has as its main purpose to analyze Clarice Lispector´s second novel, O lustre, published in 1946 and currently considered by literary criticism one of her minor works. The study will analyze mainly the development of the narrator and the main character Virginia, as the most expressive categories in the novel, as well as categories of disruption. The research has also the purpose of highlighting the avant-garde and modern aesthetics which influenced Lispector´s writing of the book. The whole investigation has the purpose of establishing O lustre as a work of great aesthetic and literary quality, demystifying the critical position which defends the little relevance of the book. In fact, in this book Lispector was able to transgress radically Brazilian prose in the 20th century. (AU)
