This work aims to investigate the relationship between politics and literature in Oswald de Andrade s modernism, mainly through the reading of Manifesto da Poesia Pau- Brasil, Manifesto Antropófago and the poetry book Pau-Brasil. We have analyzed such relationships focusing on the junction between the literary and the political fields, and the integration of its logic and agents in the sociocultural diversity process related to coffee growing. We aim at clarifying the ambiguous aspects of complicity, collaboration and dissent that the propositions and achievements of Oswald s aesthetic presented, vis a vis the efforts of preparing an epic for São Paulo. Carried out by groups and leaders of Sao Paulo s literate elite, the épica bandeirante aims to building a sociosymbolic order, which would distinguish its hegemony and would neutralize the threats arising from the cultural otherness of social groups originated in the process of change that then crossed the social area of São Paulo. In this field of forces, the modernism of Oswald appears as a symbolic force fed social and subjectively of the conflicts that composed its conditions of emergency.
