Dom Casmurro by Machado de Assis ( Book )
302 editions published between 1899 and 2009 in 16 languages and held by 1,498 libraries worldwide
"At last, a new translation of Machado's masterpiece that is complete (unlike Scott-Buccleuch's 1992 version - see HLAS 54:5078 - which omitted key chapters) and highly readable. Gledson produces a much-needed, graceful and accurate translation, attentive to Machado's tone and rhythms. Hansen's Afterword is excellent"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
Epitaph of a small winner by Machado de Assis ( Book )
235 editions published between 1896 and 2010 in 13 languages and held by 1,451 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.
Esau and Jacob by Machado de Assis ( Book )
115 editions published between 1899 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 1,257 libraries worldwide
Esau and Jacob is the last of Machado de Assis's four great novels. At one level it is the story of twin brothers in love with the same woman and her inability to choose between them. At another level, it is the story of Brazil itself, caught between the traditional and the modern, and between the monarchical and republican ideals. Instead of a heroic biblical fable, Machado de Assis gives us a story of the petty squabbles, conflicting ambitions, doubts, and insecurities that are part of the human condition.
Quincas Borba by Machado de Assis ( Book )
203 editions published between 1896 and 2008 in 13 languages and held by 988 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 )
105 editions published between 1899 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 803 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).
