The present work sought to achieve some objectives on the textual production of Henrique Silva, from Bonfin, MG, who wrote between the years 1890 to 1935, in different media, notably in the O Paiz newspaper and the Informação Goyana magazine. To begin with, he wrote hundreds of notes published daily between the years of 1890 and 1917, which record activities involving a variety of subjects. In the magazine, which circulated from 1917 to 1935, Silva’s publications increased greatly in quantity and size. All this material, after being organized into distinct tables, showed the Goiano had a peculiar erudition. He discussed hydrography, cattle raising, bandeirismo, geography, history, health, construction of the new federal capital, and many other subjects. Analysis of this material found that the great majority of the publications dealt with the economic possibilities of the central plateau, especially Goiás. These lands were the cause that he dedicated most of his life. Under this theme and for the love for Goiás, he envisioned another project of equal importance: to construct a memoir. He portrayed himself in the region of Goiás as an individual that went to the capital as a soldier, a writer, and a journalist, who contributed to the rediscovery of Goiás. The theoretical reference used for the publications in the newspaper O Paiz was the writing about his own actions. He built his achievements, through (auto)biographical writing, which was also purposefully aimed at the people of Goiás. The project continued in the publications in Informação Goyana. However, from this monthly journal, we sought to analyze the textual production of Silva from the response of the readers and identify how the reader in general attributed meaning to the various topics addressed by the journalist. A dialogue between author and reader, which sometimes occurred supported by the magazine, was an important interaction for the success of his goals. Thus, by writing of himself and the reaction of the readers, Henrique Silva, to a certain extent, immortalized himself before the Goianos.
