LOPES, Itamar Cardozo  and  DENIPOTI, Cláudio. Culture enthusiasts: book universe and its representations in the letters of the Centro Cultural Euclides da Cunha. História [online]. 2010, vol.29, n.1, pp.368-393. ISSN 1980-4369.

This article is a brief attempt to think about the many ideas and representations built in the past about the book universe. The research which originated it was exclusively done by examining the mail received and kept by the former Centro Cultural Euclides da Cunha, in Ponta Grossa, Paraná, Brazil. In structural terms, this study seeks to comment, initially, some punctual aspects of the referred institution, emphasizing, in sequence, the enormous enthusiasm which gravitated around the literary battle. To conclude, the larger traces of the unusual representation system on which such enthusiasm was based are, then, examined, trying to integrate the elements in a little broader sense. In general terms, the aim of the article is to outline and understand some of the possible relations which, in the middle of the last century, would be still established between culture, books and intelligentsia.

Keywords : Cultural History; History of the pressed word; Intellectual Brazilians.
