TREVIZANI, Tiago Marcelo  e  SILVA, Rosane Azevedo Neves da. Scripture and narration: an epistolography of the madness and the emergence of a postman. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2020, vol.10, n.3, pp. 226-248. ISSN 2238-152X.

This article presents part of a research carried out from the meeting with some letters written by patients of the former Hospício São Pedro (located in Porto Alegre / RS - Brazil). These are seventeen epistles, dating from the early twentieth century, which were not sent to recipients because they were attached to their medical records. This study seeks to reflect on the notion of scripture from this "hospice epistolography", giving visibility to some of these letters. The authors present the construction of the character "postman", which was constituted as a methodological way for this work. Throughout the text, there was a brief contextualization about epistolary writing, relating to a "writing of madness". Scripture is discussed as a mode of narration, based on the postulates of Roland Barthes and Walter Benjamin, understanding that words can be a way of dealing with pain and witnessing the horrors lived in the enclosure.

Palavras-chave : Letters from the hospice; Scripture; Narration; Epistolography.
