From the 70's, when complete works (Gesamtausgabe) came out, a new stage on the interpretation of Martin Heidegger's philosophy began. Heidegger's thought that was in Brazil by Sartrean existentialism bias was transformed. Since then, Heideggerian studies recovered increasingly the originality of Heidegger's philosophical problems. However, the attempts to situate the thematic shift of existential questions to work of art and poetry, and its function em relation to Heidegger's biggest problem, the question of Being, were a few. In Being and Time, the limitations of Existential Analytic to put the question of Being is already present, but in this same work, it's found the elements, especially the matter of truth, that made possible the passing through the existence to the work of art and poetry as a privileged realm of access to Being. Thus, this research searches to analyze the matter of truth in relation to art and poetry, mainly on the essay The Origen of Work of Art, considering to its interpretation of important philosophical questions.
