Abstract: »The aim to this work is to contribute to the discussions in the field of sensibilities and love relationships and is based on the experiences of consented abductions occurred in the state of Paraíba, from 1920 to 1940. From this point, this work selects and organizes a variety of case studies in several municipalities of Paraíba seen in interdicted love stories, inscribed in clases between tradition and modernity. The analysis discusses the framework in which reasons and feelings reveal the social relations of gender, in its many intersections with class, race/ethnicity/skin color, generations, from theoretical references to this field of research. In this perspective, this work proposes to examine cultural and political meanings of such relations put into evidence in cases of consented abductions and the respective interdictions brought to them. The following sources are used to support the analysis: criminal proceedings, magazines, newspapers and cordel literature. They allow for translating the framework of each case in discourses and practices reasons and feelings which reveal an ongoing clash between civilizational values that persist and transform themelves. The feelings analyzed through the practice of consented abductions allowed a closer approach to the multiple discourses about love, ones which are being discussed at the moment in Paraíba as well as moral values discussed in the press, legal and medical discourses, and literature. How these discourses were experienced, expanding codes of marital choice, from family interests, personal and material beyond feelings are also interest of this research. These stories were examined as parts of a set of contingencies shaped by values and clashes of that time, mainly composing knowledge, rules of government itself and all, subjectivities that do no impede the use of tactics, subterfuges, perceptions and resignifications of love experience.« (Source: Thesis)
