Under the principle of a discursive stylistics, which conceives the style as the man, although the man is seen as the actor of the enunciation, our research is anchored in the French semiotics, from which we seek to find the proximities among the tensive developments as a phenomenological method of Husserl/ Merleau-Ponty thought. Thus, the style will be investigated, focusing on limit and on threshold that, as style vectors, support the processing of the actor's body, either through "saillances" (saliences), which bring to light discontinuities related to a remissive making, or through "passances", revealing continuities related to an emissive making, as provided by Zilberberg (2006) in a study that refers to the time-space of the perception. Herewith we proceed to the analysis of the genre style (fable, graphic novel) and the author style, dimension in which Mario de Andrade's short stories (2011) and Paulo Leminski's poems (2013) will be observed, bringing to light the metamorphosis, among the stylistic vectors, as it has been studied mainly by Colas-Blaise, M. e Beyart-Geslin A. (2009), providing support to the body configuration. Under these parameters, passions will necessarily emerge: from the fable and the epic graphic novel, the passions of moralization and merit, along with a metamorphosis that performs a function of argument; the short stories and the mentioned poems, as well as a graphic novel that makes a syncretic stylization (KUPER, 2004), the passions of ekstase, which indicates a place outside&; there, the limit (outlines kept), here, the threshold (blurred outlines) in the design of the body as style.
