LIMA, Nádia Laguárdia de y SANTIAGO, Ana Lydia Bezerra. Hystorization and novel: the construction of the character in the adolescents' intimate diaries. Ágora (Rio J.) [online]. 2012, vol.15, n.1, pp.95-115. ISSN 1809-4414. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-14982012000100007.
The purpose of this work is to investigate the role of personal diaries written by adolescents. We sustain the hypothesis that intimate diaries have the novel as their paradigm. Using Lacan's concepts of hystorization and novel, we try to make an approach between the writing of an intimate diary and the construction of a novel, in which the production of a character is the main protagonist of the story. In this way, a change on the subject's position is promoted so that, rather than being determined by story, this subject is able to read his historical determination. The writing of a family novel can operate in the construction of the adolescent symptom.
