Description The article analyses two Portuguese fictional texts, in which an analogy of the topic of the posthumous heroine, treated by E.A. Poe, could be traced: a short-story “Vera e o Acidente” (As Quatro Estacoes, 1980) by David Mourao-Ferreira and a novel Tao Longo Amor, Tao Curta a Vida (2013) by Hélder Macedo. In addition to the principal topic of the return of a lost/dead woman, both fictions are concerned with the mythic legacy (especially with the myth of Persefone). The analyse is based on thematology and imagology.
