Abstract: According to the semestral report (dec/2010) from the National Penitentiary Department (DEPEN), the Espirito Santo State has a population of 10,803 prisoners. It is not little the number of enclosed lives, isolated from the social living and daily threatened with the social invisibility that legitimates physical and psychological tortures; it is too many under lives marked by precarious hygiene and salubrity conditions as we can see in a material divulged by the Espirito Santo State Council on Human Rights. Therefore, it was established as goals of this study to get to know the carceral reality under which the Espirito Santo carceral system s prisoners are submitted, to analyze the ways how they experience the fulfilling of their sentences, to get to know the mechanisms, the devices and the strategies produced by those prisoners, which allow them to live, as well as support the process of creation, production and assertion of life. This study became possible because of the cartographic attendance of the Maximum Security Prison I (PSMA I), located in Viana, ES, and because of the lives of two prisoners who kindly place themselves as partners for the concretization of this research. We thereby made many interviews during five months with those two prisoners from the PSMA I, besides the walks along the institute and participations in eventual activities promoted by it. Our analyses indicate the fighting, necessary in such spaces of enclosure, against the domination states ruling not only in the prisons, but also among the whole society; such domination states stifle the creation of life, and must be wrestled by liberty experiences, questioning experiences always ready for intervention of codes, rules and identities forged by a discourse that produces impoverishment and massification of the ways of being in the world. We emphasize prison as a device markedly producer of illnesses, a space where subject s autonomy do not stop being subtract, putting them away from the control of their lives. However, we believe that in the daily movements of life, something always escapes from the norms, something stumbles and overpasses the rules, producing small deviations, cuttings and slight fragments that feed another logic, other lives
