This article, situated within the crossroads of Portuguese Postcolonial Studies and Portuguese Literary History, is concerned with methodological and other problems related to the continuing use of the "teleological, national model". Among the main arguments are the specific problems arising from the inconsistent treatment of a number of authors normally referred to as representing colonial and anti-colonial literature, such as Luandino Vieira and Castro Soromenho. Another point is to demonstrate the potential value of colonial literature for the contemporary study of Portuguese colonialism as well as for literary historians. This is done by providing a short example of the work of Rodrigues Júnior, an extremely productive author of colonial literature from Mozambique who is today hardly remembered. Cet article, au carrefour des études postcoloniales et de l'histoire littéraire portugaises, porte notamment sur les problèmes méthodologiques liés au persistant usage du « modèle national téléologique ». Il s'agit en particulier des problèmes spécifiques découlant du traitement presque inexistant de nombre d'auteurs habituellement connus comme représentatifs de la littérature coloniale et anticoloniale tels Luandino Vieira ou Castro Soromenho. Une autre question est la valeur potentielle de la littérature coloniale comme source de l'étude contemporaine du colonialisme portugais ou pour les historiens de la littérature. Ce point est abordé par le biais d'une brève présentation de l'oeuvre de Rodrigues Júnior, un auteur extrêmement productif de la littérature coloniale au Mozambique, qui est aujourd'hui pratiquement tombé dans l'oubli. Este artigo, na encruzilhada dos estudos pós-coloniais portugueses e da História da Literatura portuguesa, incide nomeadamente sobre os problemas metodológicos ligados ao uso persistente do « modelo nacional teleológico ». Trata-se, em particular, dos problemas específicos resultantes do tratamento inconsistente de numerosos autores habitualmente conhecidos como representativos da literatura colonial e anti-colonial tais como Luandino Vieira ou Castro Soromenho. Uma outra questão é o valor potencial da literatura colonial no estudo contemporâneo do colonialismo português ou dos historiadores da literatura. Esta questão é abordada através de um pequeno excerto da obra de Rodrigues Júnior, autor extremamente produtivo da literatura colonial de Moçambique, que é hoje dificilmente recordado.
