This dissertation proposed to comprehend the body's representations that appear in the literary work O Caderno Rosa de Lori Lamby, by Hilda Hilst, published in 1990. It especially interested us in analize how the author used the language to compose such representations, taking this encounter between corporeality and language as central to the narrative. We started from the character's categorization in three occurrences: which are infantile, feminine and masculine bodies. We seek to elucidate the ways in which Hilst represents the knowledge of the body and sexuality, above all, since they are representations that go beyond purely biological conceptions. In addition, we analyzed the author's relationship with writing and what reception her supposedly pornographic text had in the face of literary criticism and the public, considering that the work is quite transgressive. Our hypothesis is that all the bodies / characters that Hilda Hilst developed in her narrative, have been diverted from their usual places in Western culture, which ended up moving pornography itself from its traditional discursive rules and its tolerance's zone. For the construction of the research we found theoretical support in the studies of Eliane Robert Moraes (1999, 2013, 2013, 2018), Luciana Borges (2006, 2009, 2013), Elódia Xavier (2007), Sigmund Freud (1905, 1916, 1917, 1923, 1924, 1925, 1927, 1931, 1933), Jean-Jacques Lacan (1956-1957, 1957-1958, 1964, 1972, 1973, 1984), Paul B. Preciado (2014, 2018), among others.
