The intertextuality, defined by Genette Gérard (1982) as "the effective presence of a text in the other'', allows the survival of the memory of literature and it is through it that there is a living interaction between two or more texts. This project has the intention of analyzing the relation of intertextuality established between the novels Sonhos d'ouro (1872) by José de Alencar and Eugénie Grandet (1833) by Honoré de Balzac, to understand the function of the allusion made to the French novel in Alencar's novel (Authier-Revuz,1982). The research will be made through the confrontation between the two novels, searching to assimilate the resemblances and differences in what concerns the construction of the charactersof the characters Ricardo and Guida, from the Brazilian narrative and Eugénie, from the French novel. T For this, a careful reading of the two novel will be done, as well as the analysis of academic and theoretical texts about both of them, the allusion and Comparative Literature.
