Bentinho Santiago, cosseted only child of a rich widow, lives next door to Capitu, the daughter of a lowly government official. As childhood friendship turns to adolescent love, an obstacle to the union exists in the form of a vow made by Bentinho's mother before his birth: The lovers' situation appears hopeless, but resourceful Capitu is not easily discouraged.
As childhood friendship turns to adolescent love, an obstacle to the union exists in the form of a vow made by Bentinho's mother before his birth: The lovers' situation appears hopeless, but resourceful Capitu is not easily discouraged. De Assis weaves a powerful and ultimately tragic story of love and disillusionment, full of the subtle irony that is the hallmark of his writing. In Capitu, his enigmatic heroine, he has also created one of the most fascinating characters in Brazilian fiction.

No one writes like Machado. A pleasure to read. It's a most unusual novel and a satisfying page turner. I'm so glad it is still in print. I read Dom Casmurro, by Machado de Assis, while living in Brazil, and also became aware of a variety of opinions about it, as it was mentioned often in the culture paqes of my Brazilian newspaper.

I also read most of the rest of the corpus of Machado's novels. This is probably the greatest novel by one of the world's greatest authors. I read the book in Portuguese and bought this translation to give as a present. This author is good at keeping the reader guessing. What stands out is the author's treatment of the narrator, who is a prime example of what is called an "unreliable narrator. Critics might disagree with me, but I think the "old wizard" himself is posing as the old wizard, quite self-consciously.
The hidebound old man is, of course, a representative of the hidebound old social class which was running the country.
Social climbers like Casmurro's wife or in another novel Helena are better people in Machado's opinion. But see for yourself, and don't miss this novel! See all 59 reviews.
