  3. Gérard Genette

    Gérard Genette is a literary scholar and structuralist theorist who has had a broad impact on the development of narratology. Although narratology was established as a field of study before Genette, he developed a terminology to describe the functioning of narrative that has become universal. His work on transtextuality is still ubiquitously referred to in the field of literary studies. Genette's classifications were rigorously formulated, and his gift for typology has gained him widespread acknowledgement among scholars of poetics in general and of narratology in particular.

    Genette is a writer and teacher, and is currently a professor of French literature at the Sorbonne and a senior lecturer at the École normale supérieure. He has also served as an academic dean at the École des hautes études en sciences sociales, and is the founder and director of the Poetics collection for the Seuil publishing house.

  7. Herberto Helder

    Born in Funchal (Madeira Island) in 1930. After having abandoned both his Law and Romanic Philology studies, he worked in various areas, traveled extensively throughout Europe, and lived in Angola. As a poet, he has transformed the act of translating into a fundamental and complementary exercise of his work, giving a new dimension to both activities.

    He was closely linked to the vanguards, but his momentum in Portuguese literature achieves however a greater freedom by the singular poetic world he creates, which makes him one of the most important names in the contemporary literary history. In spite of his brilliant trajectory, the author has stepped back from the limelight, refusing interviews, awards and the participation in literary events, dedicating himself exclusively to his work. Herberto Helder has been awarded with several prizes, like the 1999 Pessoa prize, that he has refused.

  8. Jacques Derrida

    Jacques Derrida was one of the most well known twentieth century philosophers. He was also one of the most prolific. Distancing himself from the various philosophical movements and traditions that preceded him on the French intellectual scene (phenomenology, existentialism, and structuralism), he developed a strategy called "deconstruction" in the mid 1960s. Although not purely negative, deconstruction is primarily concerned with something tantamount to a critique of the Western philosophical tradition. Deconstruction is generally presented via an analysis of specific texts. It seeks to expose, and then to subvert, the various binary oppositions that undergird our dominant ways of thinking—presence/absence, speech/writing, and so forth.
