This work aims to explore the dynamics of the cure in psychoanalysis, passing through a literary perspective. We begin by locating the idea of cure in psychoanalysis as the cure of the intractable, by thinking the logic of the cure through an aesthetic dimension. Next, we advance the idea of a literary subject, with the myth as a guiding element of a literary body that sustains its own existence. We adopt Kafka’s idea of minor literature to understand the fragmented subject inserted in the culture. We then propose the neologism 'vereedades’, playing on the proximity of the words ‘truth’ and ‘path’ in Portuguese ('verdade' and 'veredas') to explore curative dynamics, in which the subject explores his/her own style.
