The space category received more attention in the literary studies in the late decades. It is observed that this category has much importance in the literary text as any other element. thus far prioritized as, for example, the time. The dissertation is based mainly on the Topoanalisys theory by Borges Filho and, through his methodology; a study was done regarding the spatiality in the work Vila dos Confins (1974) by Mario Palmério. To do so, we used Bachelard (2008) theoretical work and Brandão (2013). We could verify that some parts of Brazil depicted in the book were still barely known: rivers, forests and dirt roads are always described in the narrative route. The house also presents itself as an essential element in the text and contributes to the understanding in order to establish positive-affective and negativeaffective relationships with the characters, which Borges Filho (2007) calls topopatia. Corroborating the analysis of this literary corpus, this dissertation examines also the dialogue established between space, memory and identity in the light of the theories of Candau (2014), Silva (2008), among others. These issues are analyzed in the context of the book, therefore, in a way, state and picture a society rooted in a particular location. In this sense, our study aims to better understand the work of a regionalist nature written by a politician-writer analyzing the spaces. It is important to note that the relationship of the characters with the space they inhabit or go through has a great influence in the plot in order to lead and contribute to the end of the novel. The narrator presents intriguing facts that permeate the text in order to transform the space of the newly emancipated county into a political battleground, as the electoral dispute is present throughout the whole narrative.
