This thesis aims to investigate part of the production and circulation of Joaquim Manuel de Macedo work in the second half of the 19th century in Rio de Janeiro as well as analyses three novels written by the author in the fifties and sixties of that century - A carteira de meu tio (1855); Memórias do sobrinho de meu tio (1868); A luneta mágica (1869). Based on the years those books were first edited and published we verify, by consulting some specific primary sources - the daily editions of Jornal do Comércio do Rio de Janeiro and some bookshop catalogs by the editors and book sellers Laemmert and Garnier - the prestige Macedo obtained in the book market along his career. This thesis aims to investigate, likewise, how the multiple social roles Joaquim Manuel de Macedo played in the society (as a politician; a professor; a member of some imperial institutions) are related to his literary production (AU)
