This research seeks to understand the school as an instance of mediation and crossing condition in the Grande Sertão: Veredas. Published in 1956, Guimarães Rosa's work places man, land and struggle on the same plane, unveiling a country full of contradictions, in the face of the combined and backward modernization process. Riobaldo, the narrator and protagonist of the novel is the only jagunço in the narrative crossed by the school. The work presents itself as a possibility and condition for the constitution of humanity, insofar as it highlights a historical-cultural reality: Brazil of the First Republic, in dialogue with the elements of composition in the rural world: coronelismo, compadrio, jaguncismo, rural catholicismo. Based on the dialectical method, the dissertation seeks in the movement of history the constitutive elements of the “being-so”, revealing the school as an instance of sociability founding in the Riobaldian crossings.
