Queer Struggle and Resilience in Stenio Gardel’s “The Words that Remain,” Translated from Portuguese by Bruna Dantas Lobato  

The novel portrays the way in which queer love and desire transcend time, hatred, and even the barriers of language. Raimundo and Cícero’s relationship, set against the landscape of Northern Brazil and the people who inhabit that space, opens a new perspective of queerness specific to that region.
