Abstract in Portuguese
Essa dissertação tem como objetivo analisar os contos da escritora Dorothy Parker em diálogo com seus poemas, tendo em vista a modernidade com a qual construiu suas histórias e o papel do humor em sua criação. Ao analisar as obras dessa autora de grande destaque nos Estados Unidos da América do Norte, nos anos 1930, veremos como o humor se transforma numa importante ferramenta que se relaciona com a construção do feminino e com a questão social da mulher, a fim de desestabilizar e transformar o status quo. O estudo, com o apoio teórico de Vladimir Propp e de Henri Bergson, intenciona demonstrar que, embora Dorothy Parker possa ser considerada uma escritora datada, seu senso satírico continua atual e reflete claramente o contexto no qual as mulheres estavam inseridas.

Abstract in English
The aim of this study is to analyse Dorothy Parker´s short stories in dialogue with her poems in order to show the modernity of her writings and the function played by humour. Analysing the works of the great american writer in the thirties, we see how humour is used as a tool in the construction of the feminine and the social role of women, with the purpose of destabilizing and making a change in the status quo. The theoretical framework based on Vladimir Propp and Henri Bergson helps to demonstrate that in spite of Dorothy Parker´s work being considered dated by some, the satiric sense that emerges from her writings is still present in our times and reveals the context in which those women were inserted.
