Abstract: Prime Minister Marques de Pombal (1750-1770) begins his mandate after the Treaty of Madrid (1750) a modern political enterprise of "nationalization" of the colonies. The Treaty has recognized the de facto occupation, and transferred sovereignty of about half of the Amazon basin from Spain to Portugal. The political project has been executed by Francisco X. Mendonça Furtado against the Jesuits "State of God" who 'protected Indians from slavery and settlers in vast semi-autonomous tracts of territory . By drawing our attention to political and ideological appropriations(the concept of the modern individual/state), and the traces left by social memory (personal e officinal letters) and fictional literature (romances), such flows of people, ideas, images and ideals challenge us to rethink the character of phantasmagoria and fictional values of belonging, formation and identity. This study compare three voices: the letters of the Portuguese ambassador-traveler Francisco X. Mendonça Furtado, the Amazon Trilogy of Alfred Döblin and the work of the native novelists Dalcídio Jurandir to knowing how political and aesthetic imagination inflected or configured the individual creative enquire and in which form are collectively of Amazonia (Nationalization and Culture) imagined or represented. This comparative study especially considering the regional background which liberate one of the most potentialities of imagination and confronting in dialogic interaction the Phantasmagoria with the ruins of the reality, the political imagination with the narrative fictionalisation.
