Epitaph of a small winner by Machado de Assis( Book )

460 editions published between 1881 and 2015 in 10 languages and held by 2,414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"New translation of Machado's famous novel is for the most part faithful and readable. However, work has occasional odd errors and omissions, and fails to give sufficient attention to Machado's rhythm and syntax. Given Rabassa's vast experience as a translator, it is hard not to suspect that carelessness and haste explain the mistakes and lapses. Also poorly edited and inadequately proofread"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
Quincas Borba by Machado de Assis( Book )

310 editions published between 1896 and 2015 in 12 languages and held by 1,923 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Updated translation of another Machado classic, with excellent accompanying essays, is a welcome addition to his work available in English. Rabassa provides a more informal, less strained tone than Wilson's 1954 version"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58

Counselor Ayres' memorial by Machado de Assis( Book )

132 editions published between 1899 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The love story that the Counselor narrates revolves around Fedilia and Tristao, who both are the godchildren of childless couple Aguiar and Dona Carmo. It is thought that the marriage between Aquiar and Dona Carmo is modeled after the relationship between de Assis and his wife, Caroline. The Counselorʹs diary entries chronicles Fideliaʹs transition from a widow bent on a lifelong habit of mourning her dead husband to a woman who rediscovers the world of the living and of love. Written in the late 1880s, the counselorʹs diary documents some of the social changes taking place in Brazil. There are several mentions of slavery and its abolition on May 13, 1888. The counselor does not himself engage much with the issue saying that old ways of thinking prevail even as he recognizes that he should assume more responsibility and interest in the matter. This stance apparently reflects the authorʹs own public disengagement with the issue of slavery and its abolition. de Assis, whose father was a mulatto, has been heavily criticized for not politicizing his works and addressing the plight of black Brazilians in his works. I disagree with this sentiment. -- Description from http://kinnareads.wordpress.com (Oct. 24, 2011)
Helena : a novel by Machado de Assis( Book )

156 editions published between 1876 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Helena y Estacio son hermanastros y sienten gran ternura el uno por el otro. Con el pasar del tiempo, ese sentimiento vago de la infancia se transforma en amor. Estacio est & aacute; prometido con Eugenia, la hija del m & eacute;dico de la familia. A Helena la corteja Mendoza, un amigo reci & eacute;n vuelto de un viaje por Europa. El conflicto, apenas esbozado, avanza y se despliega en una zona donde el contraste entre lo leg & iacute;timo y lo ileg & iacute;timo se borra. En esa zona, cualquier osad & iacute;a es posible. El esp & iacute;ritu rom & aacute;ntico, angelical y sat & aacute;nico, se revela con nitidez en este retrato de una sociedad en decadencia que Machado de Assis trata con toda la fuerza demoledora de su iron & iacute;a
Iaiá Garcia by Machado de Assis( Book )

118 editions published between 1878 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 affl
The hand & the glove by Machado de Assis( Book )

116 editions published between 1907 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The later novels of Machado de Assis -- notably Dom Casmurro and Esau and Jacob -- are well known in this country, but the earlier novels have never been translated. Here, in The Hand and the Glove (the Brazilian master's second novel), rendered in English for the first time by Albert I. Bagby, Jr., readers will find a younger, gentler Assis, writing a romantic comedy that is yet permeated with the lively wit characteristic of his later works. The story is a simple one-of love lost and love found. Of love lost by Estêvão, amiable but vacillating, who is bemused by his own romantic posturing,
The Alienist by Machado de Assis( Book )

161 editions published between 1941 and 2015 in 10 languages and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Till now, madness has been thought a small island in an ocean of sanity. I am beginning to suspect that it is not an island at all but a continent."

Bacamarte opens the first asylum in Brazil hoping to crown himself and his hometown with "imperishable laurels." But the doctor begins to see signs of insanity in more and more of his neighbors

"O conto foi o laboratório mais fecundo de suas experimentações, e não foi em vão que escreveu mais de 200, e que, entre estes, estão algumas das obras-primas do gênero, em qualquer literatura. ... Os seus contos e romances são construídos com o material humano mais comum e ordinário, com as miudezas e o terra-a-terra da vida vulgar de todos os dias."
