The article argues that the Brazilian rural short-story of the fin de siècle captures the interface between two milieux: the modern–urban and the archaic–rural. After asking whether the term “Regionalism” is an appropriate label for either the short-story or the novel, the article goes on to show that the presence of the supernatural and the uncanny, characteristic features of the fantastic, was not peculiar just to the rural setting but also survived, perhaps less overtly, in the city. The fears and superstitions of a simple peasant might therefore have more in common with the mind of a sophisticated member of the elite than had previously been thought the case.
