Helena by Joaquim Maria Machado de Assis

By Joaquim Maria Machado de Assis

Helena y Estacio son hermanastros y sienten gran ternura el uno por el otro. Con el pasar del tiempo, ese sentimiento vago de los angeles infancia se transforma en amor.Estacio está prometido con Eugenia, los angeles hija del médico de l. a. familia. A Helena los angeles corteja Mendoza, un amigo recién vuelto de un viaje por Europa.El conflicto, apenas esbozado, avanza y se despliega en una zona donde el contraste entre lo legítimo y lo ilegítimo se borra. En esa zona, cualquier osadía es posible.El espíritu romántico, angelical y satánico, se revela con nitidez en este retrato de una sociedad en decadencia que Machado de Assis trata con toda los angeles fuerza demoledora de su ironía.
