This research intends to investigate authorship position as something inserted in the socio-historical trend of semantic-ideological (discursive) processes of language. In this fashion, our objective is to investigate by which ways authorship position is (des)articulated, in the measure that it depends of successful interpretative gestures from the narrator’s part (in the case of oral narratives, such as those which will be studied in this project). The “corpus” is composed by 24 oral narratives, told by an illiterate woman who lives in the city of Ribeirão Preto-SP. The theoretical basis will stress mainly the following axes: “French”discourse analysis, Lacan’s oriented psychoanalysis and the relationship between myth and ideology. The problem of myth will be taken as an interdiscourse, which founds a relationship of alterity between orality and writing. Our interest is to analyze the narratives, using the indiciary paradigm, considering the relationship between tehe general and the particular which constitutes them, and also which determines subject’s positions, coordinated with the author’s position. We will try to point out ruptures related with ideological evidences determined by a sociohistorical process, wherein the oral narrative activity is efaced, in an effort to show singular ways through which these narratives constitutes the sustentation of this unaccurate and opaque relationship between the subject and the language.
