Eagleton Place

… The memory hangs in places, as history in events. … the memory place is a double place: a place of excess, closed on itself, exactly closed on its identity, and collected on its name, but constantly opened on the extension of its significaes. We understand, in such a way, that the literary composition in analysis is a place of memory in the three felt of the word: material, symbolic functionary and.

Material for registering the demography of a place, functionary for if dealing with a hypothesis that sends in them to the transmission of the crystallization of the souvenir, and symbolic for being related to a lived experience, to the event. The Salesman of Pasts is a place hybrid, of representation of the time and space, of the construction and desconstruo of the memory, breaching with old identities and reincorporando to the old new identities, desconstruindo the dominant and hegemonic speech that privileged an only identity and discarded excessively. 3 MEMORY AND ESQUECIMENTO after-modernity suggest that the language where any form of representation operates cannot escape the ideological contamination. As Hutcheon (1991, P. 227-228), cited for Eagleton ' ' all practical the social ones exist in the ideology and by means of the ideology and, as such, the ideology starts to mean? the forms in which what we say and where we believe if it binds to the structure of being able of the society where we live? ' '. We are involved of representation. We are the all moment representing, descentrando the position of individuals for the position of citizens that enter in representacional scene. That is what it succeeds in the life of the personages of the romance of Jose Eduardo Agualusa. In data moment of history the Minister looks for Flix Happiness, therefore it needed to write a daily one, and the salesman of pasts gave magnificent, consistent histories to it with the reality of the ruling class of that time.
