Quando o jornalismo e a literatura trocam de lugar

Abstract : This project aims to try to show that Journalism and Literature are activities that overlap, complement each other and that they often change places. This is because both work with two elements inherent in the written word, the real and the fictional, but while literature freely takes the subjectivity and the fictional nature of the text itself, journalism often tends to deny them. For that reason, we will try to find the fictional elements present in the journalistic text, and the real ones present in the literary text, showing that, at several times, since the appearance of the press in Brazil, literary journalists used the space reserved for the fictional to say what didn’t fit in the space intended for the real – due to political, historical reasons, etc. – at the same time that they dared to adorn reality in the newspapers in order to present it more appealing and marketable, making it therefore more fictitious. The issue raises questions such as : do Journalism and Literature switch roles when it suits them? Do the suppression of some facts and censorship make journalistic reports essentially subjective or not? To what extent can Literature translate reality? What is the boundary between reality and fiction in books and newspapers?
