VASCONCELOS, Maria Celi Chaves. Teachings and stories: Maria Amália Vaz de Carvalho and her strategy for woman’s education. Rev. Diálogo Educ. [online]. 2020, vol.20, n.67, pp.1513-1538.  Epub 31-Dic-2020. ISSN 1981-416X.

This study aims to analyze the books Mulheres e Crianças: notas sobre educação (Women and Children: notes on education) and Contos e Phantasias (Stories and Fantasies), about female education, authored by the Portuguese poet and writer Maria Amália Vaz de Carvalho, both published in the year 1880. In a specific view, we address the author’s conception on a theme inserted in these two writings of Maria Amália, the domestic education of girls carried out by their own mothers or by teachers hired for this purpose. With regard to methodological aspects, the article presents a bibliographic and analytical research, whose books were chosen because they were elaborated in the same period and because they are two different genres: reality and fiction, equally used by the author as a strategy to convince her readers of her teachings. The study shows that the books complement each other, as they demonstrate - either through the direct teachings that Maria Amália offers to women, or through the stories in which she builds narratives that exemplify and illustrate her advice - what was the appropriate female education for the role to be played by women in the society of their time, consisting solely of good wives, good mothers and good housekeepers.

Palabras clave : Female education; Mother and teacher; Maria Amália Vaz de Carvalho.
