This article examines the fictional creation of The passion (1965), first novel in Almeida Faria’s so called Lusitanian Tetralogy. Based on the mythical criticism, it studies the mythopoetic invention of the contemporary world represented in the novel. Also, it verifies that the author criticizes the Portuguese reality of tradition vis-à-vis revolutionary forces in the country in the 1970’s. In order to do so, he constructs the language and narrative of his novel based on the expressive and symbolic force of myth and its archetypical elements. Almeida Faria’s fictional creation defends the theoretical and critical point of view that literature can do historical criticism without been poetical.
