BATISTA, Paula Virgínia Pinheiro. Books come - books go: exchanges among a community of readers in the correspondence of Capistrano de Abreu and Joao Lucio de Azevedo (1916-1927). História [online]. 2011, vol.30, n.2, pp.29-50. ISSN 1980-4369.

This paper analyzes the exchange of correspondence between the historians Joao Capistrano de Abreu and Joao Lucio de Azevedo, two "men of letters". They both participated actively in the intellectual field in Brazil and in Portugal, respectively. These correspondences show a network of sociability that was shaped around reading exchanges and skills. We analyze the comments that the writers made about their readings, in a quest to grasp what kind of appropriations were made from the books shared between them, focusing on the exchange of novels and works of fiction. The correspondences were written in the first decades of the 20th century (1916 - 1927).

Palabras clave : Capistrano de Abreu; Community of readers; Exchange of letters.
