STRELOW, Aline. Beginnings of literary press in Rio Grande do Sul – The history of the newspaper "O Guayba". Intercom, Rev. Bras. Ciênc. Comun. [online]. 2016, vol.39, n.2, pp.19-37. ISSN 1809-5844.

The Literature dominated the printed media in Rio Grande do Sul in the second half of the 19th century. In total, there were about 70 similar publications circulating at the time. The first one, launched in 1856, was O Guayba. In this article, we intend to recover the history of this newspaper, which circulated for two years in Porto Alegre. The analysis will have as the theoretical basis the Cultural History. The methodological approach of the research will be based on the model proposed by Robert Darnton to the study of forms, in other words, it addresses the communication circuit that involves the object - its materiality, stakeholders and its relationship with society. The O Guayba was a pioneer newspaper, in which took place the ideas of the main representatives of the first local romantic generation. Many important names in the history of the press in Rio Grande do Sul had their first professional experience in its pages. The insertion of reading in the city's daily life is one of its legacies.
