ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the book "Dom Casmurro," by Joaquim Maria Machado de Assis, translated by Helen Caldwell. It is a work of troubling insight and ironic beauty; perhaps it is even more disturbing in its implications, since the surface geniality of the "Epitaph" is darkened here, infected somehow by a sexual ferocity that is not very far from madness. Much of the delight of this book is to be found in the tender, endless varied scenes of early love.
