The aim of this study is a collection of works of what we call "secondary novels" of the 1930's: 'O gororoba' (1930) and 'Paracoera' (1936), by Lauro Palhano; 'Os Corumbas' (1933) and 'A rua do Siriri' (1937), by Amando Fontes; 'Os três Sargentos' (1931), by João Fernando de Almeida Prado; A vida apertada de Eunápio Cachimbo (1939), de Galeão Coutinho; 'Maria Luiza' (1933) and 'Amanhecer' (1938), by Lúcia Miguel Pereira; 'Sob o olhar malicioso dos trópicos' (1937), by José Barreto Filho and 'Badú' (1932), by Arnaldo Tabayá; novels that, though forgotten, are not without relevance to the literary historiography of the period. The idea is to perform an analysis, but also a comparative study with the Jose Lins do Rego's and Graciliano Ramos's novels. Therefore we can not only identify the aesthetic elements that compose it and compare them to the results obtained, searching for differences and similarities with our corpus, but also study the possible aesthetic-literary relations of this material with the works, authors and the period studied. We also intend to survey the critical bibliography from the time needed to understand the perspective of literary criticism for the works in question and therefore gain a broader picture of the place of our object of study in relation to canonical works and in time they were produced.
