This is a bilingual edition with the Portuguese original alongside the English translation.
Ten short stories by Brazil’s most renowned writer. Most come from his earlier, formative years, stories never before translated into English. Though lacking the literary sophistication of Machado’s later work, these stories illustrate and dramatize the intricate social workings of nation growing out of the Portuguese roots of kings and courtiers and into the new rules of a new republic in a rapidly changing world. The preface by Ana Cláudia Suriani da Silva and the introduction by Greicy Pinto Bellin, both respected Machadian researchers, give the reader literary insight into what is happening between the lines of these stories. Generous notes provide background information on Brazilian culture. (Source: Publisher)
