While controversial, it is an early attempt at indigenous writing that engages multiple disciplines through satirical interplays and bicultural languaging. It appeared as a post-colonial response to trends in psychology (Freudian totemism and taboo) and anthropology (cannibalism debate) and the identity politics of nationalist movements. Andrade is a member of the Tupi tribe and is known for cannibalizing Shakespeare in his manifesto, quoting Hamlet: tupi or not tupi, that is the question.
