In order to study "Tutaméia: terceiras estórias (third stories)" written by João Guimarães Rosa, a comparative study of irony was proposed, a sort of logical beauty produced through critical distance in order to communicate by suggestion, as it had already been done in the past by the romantic writer Friedrich Schlegel. Until the late nineteen eighties, readers and reviewers received Tutaméia (1967) under a lot of scandal and disinterest due to the structural innovations of the work composed by four interleaved prefaces to forty short stories. Recently, however, it has emerged again for the reviewe's eyes who acknowledge in Terceiras Estórias (Third Stories) a critical overview of the author´s writings. The title and subtitle suggest the equivocality of the evaluation of the term "Tutaméia" (almost anything and all my stuff) associated with the story as genre element pre-literary classic that refuses renderings and realistic representation. Using four prefaces the author gives to the centrality of aesthetic debate referred to the reader of this work incomplete sorting ironic. Our hypothesis: Tutaméia it seems ironic result of a design representation. The genre serves as the story in relationship to the structural innovations: the four prefaces the title double and misunderstanding of the work, the rates of reading and rereading with their epigraphs. Our goal: through the study of romantic irony, to investigate how the structural innovations signal the sort of ironic Tutaméia by the author as a device that has at least the story of abstraction.
