About meJoaquim Maria Machado de Assis, pron. IPA: [ʒoa'kĩ ma'riɐ ma'ʃadu dʒi a'siʃ], often known as Machado de Assis, Machado, or "The wizard of Cosme Velho", was born on June 21, 1839, at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and died on September 29, 1908, at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Machado de Assis was Brazilian novelist, poet and short-story writer. People widely regarded him as the most important writer of Brazilian literature and his works had a great influence on Brazilian literary schools of the late 19th century and 20th century.

José Saramago, Carlos Fuentes, Susan Sontag and Harold Bloom (who called him "the supreme black literary artist to date") are among his readers.
