The two main literary works which had the authorship by Patricia Galvão (1910-1962) - Parque Industrial (written under the pseudonym Mara Lobo, and published in 1933) and A Famosa Revista (developed in partnership with Geraldo Ferraz, and published in 1945) - show concerns about both aesthetic experimentation and political engagement. Although important to discuss the concept of the role of Literature in the context of Brazilian Literary History, these two books still lack critical fortune. In this sense, this research aims to present, as a contribution, studies of Parque Industrial and A Famosa Revista. The first two Chapters of the dissertation focus on separate readings of the books, which were based on the relationship that the Artistic materials have with History. Other areas of the Humanities were also used as they seemed to be important for the comprehension of the texts. The third Chapter consists on the analysis of the constitution of the characters in both books, from the relationship they have with the category of Public and Private, and with the general structures of the literary works. It is a distinct study, but can be added to the preceding Chapters. Although the co-authorship of Geraldo Ferraz has been properly considered in the study of A Famosa Revista, the book Paixão Pagu - a autobiografia precoce de Patrícia Galvão (organized by Geraldo Galvão Ferraz, the son of the authors, and published in 2005) was very important for this research. It represents the different political positions and moments in the life of the female writer when she was involved in the elaboration of Parque Industrial and A Famosa Revista (AU)
