Abstract in Portuguese
O presente trabalho tem como objetivo o estudo da representação do herói na obra literária As Andorinhas, de Paulina Chiziane, publicada em Maputo, em 2008, e no Brasil, no ano de 2013. A obra de três contos inspira-se em figuras históricas importantes à constituição da identidade moçambicana. Os heróis nacionais tratados na ficção da autora, entretanto, são narrados como personagens provenientes do universo mitológico. Com o propósito de compreender a finalidade da obra dentro do contexto social e histórico de Moçambique, este trabalho analisa o herói tanto pela sua representação simbólica, como por sua atuação no processo de desenvolvimento de uma identidade nacional em contraposição ao sistema colonial e suas mazelas. Portanto, o tema da busca da liberdade permeia a trilogia de contos e coloca o herói como o representante das transformações sociais no tempo histórico e representante das divindades no tempo mitológico.

Abstract in English
The present paper aims to study the representation of the hero in the literary work The Swallows, from Paulina Chiziane, published in Maputo (2008) and in Brazil (2013). The short stories are inspired by important historical figures to the formation of Mozambican identity. These national heroes, however, are narrated as characters from the mythological universe. In order to understand the purpose of the literary work within the social and historical context of Mozambique, this paper analyzes the hero both for its symbolic representation, as for its role in the formation of a national identity in opposition to the colonial system and its ills process. Therefore, the theme of the pursuit of freedom permeates this trilogy and puts the hero as the representative of the social transformations in historical time and representative of the deities in the mythological time.
