Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0850515165, Paperback)The first novel by the undisputed master of Brazilian literature, Ressurreição (Resurrection, 1872) tells the story of Félix, an emotionally unstable and determined young man motivated by jealousy. Félix seeks to win the heart of Lívia, a widow, but his conduct leads her to end their relationship. While all of Machado de Assis' novels treat everyday life as a spectacle, even his early novels go beyond previous literature, principally by his creation of characters that tried to move up in social class, even at the cost of love.
