Machado de Assis

April 9, 2013

In the last week I finished the book “As Memórias Póstumas de Brás Cubas” by Machado de Assis, this book is very important for Brazilian literature, and now I understand why, it is a great book, although the reading is very heavy, because it was written on the last century. I want to share this experience with you, because is a good one. 

I translate this little review to show you what have in this amazing book:

“The narrator-protagonist of the book is a man who is born in the nineteenth century Brazilian elite, that never worked or created something in his life. Dead, he decides to pass his memories with humor and irony, which also reveals an obscure Brazilian society.”

You read correctly, The narrator is a dead man who tells us his life. This book, and the others of Machado de Assis worth reading!
