Iaiá Garcia

by Machado De Assis

The last of four novels that preceded Machado de Assis's famous trilogy of realistic masterpieces, Iaiá Garcia belongs to what critics have called the Brazilian author's "romantic" phase. But it is far more than that implies. Like his other early works, Iaiá Garcia foreshadows the themes and characters of Assis's most masterful novels. Iaiá Garcia intertwines the lives of three characters in a subtly and wryly developing relationship. While the youthful Iaiá is growing into womanhood, a tentative love affair occurs between the aristocratic Jorge and the prideful Estela. This affair is afflicted by ironic shifts of fortune and in time the maturing Iaiá becomes a rival for Jorge's attentions. Assis's portrayal of the relationship among these three characters is a perceptive study of uncompromising pride, thwarted love, jealousy, misunderstanding, bewilderment, and attainment. As the translator, Albert I. Bagby, Jr., contends, the story of Iaiá, Jorge, and Estela reflects the formula that Assis saw as fundamental to human life: "Will and ambition, when they truly dominate, can struggle with other feelings, but they are the weapons of the strong, and victory belongs to the strong." In Assis's view success comes to the strong and failure to the weak. But both inhabit a world that is neutral-neither helping one nor hindering the other. The outcome of events in Iaiá Garcia may not seem entirely optimistic, but neither is it pessimistic. And Mr. Bagby concludes, "Perhaps to understand the optimism of Assis one needs only to be ... a hard, pragmatic realist .... " Whether hard realists or unregenerate romantics, readers of this novel will find it a compelling tale of love lost and won. Like his earlier translation of Assis's The Hand & the Glove, Mr. Bagby's English rendering of Iaiá Garcia from the original Portuguese is done with both accuracy and sensitivity.

A Mão e a Luva

by Machado De Assis

Bem-vindo ao universo extraordinario de Machado de Assis, um dos maiores vultos da literatura Luso-Brasileira de sempre. Nesta edição de A Mão e a Luva, trazemos até si a melhor edição esta admirável peça literária do final do século XIX. A Mão e a Luva é o segundo romance escrito pelo escritor brasileiro Machado de Assis, pela primeira vez publicado em 1874. A Mão e a Luva foiinicialmente publicado em 20 folhetins, com o subtítulo "Um perfil de mulher", nos rodapés de O Globo, jornal dirigido por Quintino Bocaiúva, entre 26 de setembro e 3 de novembro (não diariamente). Em A Mão e a Luva, a história transcorre em Botafogo, então um simples arrabalde (o que hoje chamaríamos de subúrbio) repleto de aprazíveis chácaras. Machado de Assis conta-nos uma "história de amor", ou seja, a história de uma mulher de personalidade forte, Guiomar, que é assediada por três pretendentes a marido. A obra enquadra-se na fase "romântica" do autor, mas em vez dos recursos clássicos do romantismo — enredos rocambolescos, plenos de coincidências, reviravoltas, surpresas, suspenses — Machado de Assis, como já ocorrera no romance de estreia, Ressurreição, prefere um texto contido, minimalista em termos de trama, de análise psicológica, mas com uma enorme elegância estilística, que continuaria aperfeiçoando até atingir seus píncaros na chamada "fase realista". Esperamos que tenha tanto prazer a ler esta obra clássica quanto aquele que nós, Cascais Classic Editions, tivemos a trazer-lha até si. Deixe-se levar pelos sonhos... Oliver Garrett

Memorial de Aires

by Machado De Assis

The last novel by Brazil's most important writer, Memorial de Aires doesn't have a strict plot. It is structured as a kind of diarly of Counselor Aires, a retired diplomat. His notes tell several stories including that of Tristão, who falls in love with and marries a young widow, Fidália. After their marriage, the couple go to Europe, leaving their friends with only sadness and memories. Known as the novel that best reflects the personality and life of Machado de Assis, Memorial de Aires substitutes the irony and sarcasm of his earlier novels with a compassionate and melancholy tone. Some critics count the novel as a literary and human testament from the master of Brazilian letters.

Noite na Taverna

by Álvares De Azevedo

Bem-vindo ao universo extraordinario de Álvares de Azevedo, um dos maiores vultos da literatura Luso-Brasileira de sempre. Nesta edição de Noite na Taverna, trazemos até si a melhor edição esta admirável peça literária do final do século XIX. Noite na Taverna é uma obra publicada postumamente no ano de 1855 em uma coletânea de textos do autor em dois volumes. De tons trágicos e cheia de fantasia, a obra é uma autêntica representante da escola byroniana do Romantismo no Brasil. O livro está dividido em sete capítulos. O primeiro capítulo faz uma introdução, traça o cenário (uma taverna) e apresenta os personagens. O último finaliza a história anterior e o livro simultaneamente, dando um caráter de realidade às histórias narradas pelas cinco personagens. Reunidos em uma taverna, as personagens, descrentes com a vida e o amor, cheios de vícios e amantes do vinho, definem-se como libertinos, admiram Don Juan e contam "histórias sanguinolentas" envolvendo o amor e crimes do passado, todas com fim trágico. Representação de que o amor e a vida não valeria. Esperamos que tenha tanto prazer a ler esta obra clássica quanto aquele que nós, Cascais Classic Editions, tivemos a trazer-lha até si.

O Alienista

by Machado De Assis

A sarcastic criticism of the science of its day, O Alientista, considered a classic of Brazilian literature, tells the story of psychiatrist Simão Bacamarte, who convinces the town of Itaguaí to pay for an assylum, and begins to fill it with residents he believes insane. While the assylum at first has a few patients, it grows quickly until, after a revolt by many in the town is fought off, it includes 4/5ths of the town! Realizing something is wrong, Bacamarte releases those committed saying that those committed are infact normal. Instead, he concludes, the insane are those who are considered normal or exemplary. Then his friends convince him that he is, in fact, exemplary. . .
