Iracema - José de Alencar
Sinopse: O romance conta, de forma poética, o amor quase impossível entre um branco, Martim Soares Moreno, pela bela índia Iracema, a virgem dos lábios de mel e de cabelos mais negros que a asa da graúna e explica poeticamente as origens da terra natal do autor, o Ceará.
Plot: The story revolves around the relationship between the Tabajara indigenous woman, Iracema; and the Portuguese colonist, Martim, who was allied with the Tabajara nation's enemies, the Pitiguaras.
Through the novel Alencar tries to remake the history of the Brazilian colonial state of Ceará's origins, with Moacir, the son of Iracema and Martim, as the first true Brazilian in Ceará. This pure Brazilian is born from the love of the natural, innocence (Iracema) and culture and knowledge (Martim), and also represents the mixture (miscegenation) of the native race with the European race to produce a new (Brazilian) race.
