This study had as its main purpose to investigate the unconsciousness in a Machado de Assis’ literary work, using the concept of “relative unconsciousness” by Fabio Hermann’s. Through the work of art, the author interacts with the reader establishing an interpsychic field, where some aspects are manipulated by him determining the field’s characteristics and directing the reading to a certain artistic purpose. The data were taken from Machado de Assis’ literary work - The Nurse. The interpsychic relationship between author and reader can be investigated, transferentially, converting the psychoanalytic method into a research. Others papers can corroborate this study.
