&60;p&62;In Mia Couto’s collection of short stories &60;em&62;Estórias Abensonhadas&60;/em&62;, the Mozambican author seeks to revive cultural tradition through characters who are faced with extreme situations in their lives. One of the short stories, “Nas águas do tempo”, stands out as it introduces elements of both the profane and the sacred that are peculiar to mythical narratives. The divine being must be revered so that the link with humankind is not broken and so that the world order is not disturbed.&60;/p&62;&60;p&62;---&60;/p&62;&60;p&62;DOI&58; http&58;//;/p&62;
