Abstract: This article examines how the image of the black woman from the countryside who moves to Luanda was developed at three key moments in Angolan literature as a means of constructing national identity. The analysis focuses on Nga Mutúri (1882), by Alfredo Troni ; “Linda,” a short story from A Casa da Mãezinha, by António Cardoso; and “Martinha,” a short story from Momento de Ilusão (2000), by Fragata de Morais.
