The disconnect and rupture between protests and elections points to the ambiguities of citizenship and crisis, as Leila Lehnen introduces in her book, Citizenship and Crisis in Contemporary Brazilian Literature.

Transmodernity Fall right to the cultural expression of identity. She argues that citizenship and crisis have become prevalent themes in Brazilian literature, appearing as cultural expressions of socioeconomic, civil, and cultural rights, offering a new historicism that recovers the marginality of cities and metropolitan centers. Considering the literal and figurative peripheries that these nine texts emerge from and react to, Lehnen gives voice to writers and moments in literature that are typically subsumed by those who are in power. Comprised of four content chapters, an introduction, and an epilogue, Lehnen moves through moments of differentiated and insurgent citizenship as windows into crises that portrayed in Brazilian literature.
Indeed, in her analysis, Lehnen introduces characters that move beyond dichotomous narratives of social ascension and descent as citizens, inhabiting instead spaces beyond citizenship, beyond rural and urban, in order to unveil the fissures of contemporary Brazilian social citizenship as produced by the nation- state, capitalism, and neoliberalism.

In a country where voting is mandatory, voters ask themselves: what achievements has President Rousseff accomplished to spread uneven citizenship rights to more Brazilians; will she help to grow the economy; and, finally, do they have the courage to opt for change with another candidate? Moreover, the questions of citizenship that the authors of the texts and Lehnen raises urge readers to consider the interaction between literature, politics, economics, and the rights of citizens.
Often times, readers dismiss the stance that situates authors squarely in the realm of politics. Related Papers.
