This book is the result of research conducted during my post-doctoral training at the University of Coimbra, Portugal, and proposes a reading of the correspondence between António Nobre e Alberto de Oliveira emphasizing characteristics and peculiarities of the affectiveness present in the friendship between the two poets. The perspective adopted is comparativism. The proposal is instigating because it demonstrates features of the affection that surrounds the two poets in their friendship permeated by fantasies and repression, for the most part, of sociocultural order. The research was inspired in the "provocation" caused by a short story by Mario Cláudio that serves as a compass for the development of the hypothesis: the homoerotic nature of the friendship between Alberto and António. This hypothesis is justified given the theoretical and methodological boundaries drawn by Psychoanalysis, Literary Theory and Philosophy, in general terms.
