This is an analysis of how the political beliefs of Jorge Amado impacted his novels, incorporating Socialist Realist thought into a Brazilian context. This book analyzes the influence of the political convictions of the Brazilian writer Jorge Amado in the early phases of his literary career. During this period, Amado sought to legitimize his political thought through narratives that create a literary representation of daily life in Brazil. Amado's ideas are compared with the idea of "the people" as presented by political speeches of the Estado Novo and the Brazilian Communist Party (which described ordinary people as the "proletariat"). The writings of Amado sought to adapt the ideas of Socialist Realism to a Brazilian context.
