ABSTRACT
This paper integrates the charts of a larger study in which we investigate the trajectory, the militancy and Raul Pompeia’s political ideals (1863-1895) placing him in the Brazilian context in late nineteenth century. We highlight, particularly, Raul Pompeia’s chronicals for the newspaper “O Estado de São Paulo in a series which the author titled "Da Capital" and was published by an afternoon newspaper from São Paulo between 1891 and 1893. We have tried to understand, through this work, how the chronicle, as a genre on the border between literature and history, works as a documentary witness able to reveal the political tensions of an era.
