Resumo

My purpose in this paper is to discuss two Brazilian interpretations of American Culture which I believe are representative of two strategies of reading. The first of these interpretations was produced by Alceu Amoroso Lima after he visited the United States in the early 50's; the second by Henrique Souza Filho, better known as Henfil, who also visited the United States some twenty years after Lima. Alceu Amoroso Lima (1893-1984) got a degree in law in Rio de Janeiro and then studied in Europe in 1913, when he met Graga Aranha and became interested in the Modernist revolution in art and literature.
