For Mário de Sá-Carneiro, Paris, always present in the life and work of the author, is a real referent, but also and above all a myth and a symbol. For him and his characters, passionate about the great capitals and the “great life”, Paris brings together the assets of modernity, cosmopolitanism, social, cultural and artistic agitation, lights, daily celebration, prestige, glamour, luxury, audacity, eroticism. But this city is above all a body, masculine or feminine, an object of desire, with which the author and his characters live a “love story”.
