Corpo, memória, cadeia: o que pode o corpo escrito?

This article aims to review the complete study of a Graciliano Ramos' (1892-1953) book titled Memórias do cárcere. Its purpose is to focus the relation between literature (word, language and speech) and the body through a memory narrative of the prison. These four terms will be interlinked to try to, by Graciliano Ramos literary opus, reflect about what can a body do in literature.

body; memory; prison; literature
