    In the oeuvre of António Lobo Antunes, Africa constitutes a constant theme, as is reflected in O Esplendor de Portugal. This paper concentrates on an analysis of the level and the mode in which the subjectivity of Isilda is configured both by Africa and, also, by the influence of her father. Away from the portrait of women in the “Lição de Salazar”, Isilda does not leave behind the Angolan soil. In addition, it is in the character of Isilda where the postcolonial duality is presented since she was brought up in Baixa do Cassanje and experimented by her, by the father the colonial Salazarist society and, as well, now on her own, in a postcolonial Angola. Isilda is the character who is fully aware that would remain in Africa. En la obra de António Lobo Antunes, África constituye una constante temática., tal y como ocurre en O Esplendor de Portugal En esta comunicación se presenta un análisis, el plano y el modo en que la subjetividad de Isilda (madre de los tres hijos que están en Lisboa) se configuró en África y con su padre. Alejada de la imagen de la “Lição”, Isilda no abandona el lar angoleño, es quien muestra la dualidad (pos)colonial por haber crecido en Baixa do Cassanje y experimentado de la mano de su padre la sociedad colonial salazarista así como, ya sola, la Angola poscolonial. Isilda es quien es plenamente consciente que ha de permanecer en este lar africano.
