Abstract: From the idea of Romanticism as a worldview of revolt against capitalist/industrial modernity in name of values of the past, the identification of António Feliciano de Castilho (1800-1875) as an intellectual who intends to live poetically in pursuit of public happiness. Considering the periodical press as a vital intervention in society by shaping opinion, the analysis of the Revista Universal Lisbonense of the period in which this poet was his editor (January 6th, 1842 to June 19th, 1845). History of the press in Portugal in the first half of the nineteenth century and the journalistic formation of Castilho until he assumes the newspaper. Examination of his redactional project in constant transformation and his strategies to increase the number of readers, attract new subscribers and keep publishing despite the dictatorial government of Costa Cabral. Critical evaluation of Castilho's perspective on his country from the news section, whose texts point to criticism and alternatives at the same time that his narrative was approaching fiction, making it important in the development of the "contemporary" novel. Examination of the autor's poetic journey and of the model of poetry advocated by him, identifying his motivations for selecting writers for his magazine. The progressive construction by Castilho of a new place of prominence in the Portuguese literary romanticism, placing himself as the change starter through which the Portuguese poetry was undergoing. The defense, as a critic, of a poetic style with formal rigor coupled with content and the encouragement of innovations in both poems and narratives. The relationship between the fictional prose published in this journal and the social and political situation of his time, which was prejudicial to his project of political neutrality on the magazine. Ways and possibilities for a revolutionary right: the pursuit of happiness.
