This article deals with the negative representation of William Carr Beresford (1768-1854) and the carnivalization of Anglo-Portuguese interests in nineteenth-century Portugal in Sttau Monteiro’s historical and allegorical play Felizmente Há Luar! (1961) through the analysis of the English hero’s (de)mythification and several political and cultural self- and hetero-stereotypes in Portuguese literature.
