    In "The Diplomat" this idea is expressed through the description of a man's unexpressed passion for a friend's daughter. He might not have dared; slavery ended in Brazil only in Yet Machado is always writing about liberation in his way, which to him begins with the freedom — the obligation — to think. From childhood, has always been very spoiled by his family. As an important vehicle of social criticism, the novel uses satire to effectively bring several important home-truths to the attention of the reading public.

    In the broader panorama of Brazilian society, this was unremarkable. Some, such as Abel Barros Baptista, classify Machado as Machado de Assis book staunch anti-realist, and argue that his writing attacks Realism, aiming to negate the possibility of representation or the existence of a meaningful objective reality. Readers witness the bourgeoisie of Rio both at play, and, occasionally, attempting to be serious, as depicted by the chief character of "The Alienist," who makes naively grandiose claims for his Brazilian hometown at the expense of the cultural capitals of Europe. Though he never roved far from his hometown he read widely, claiming all of culture, all of Europe — giving his work that remarkably open, cosmopolitan feel.

    Chapters 1—4 In a short space of time, Bacamarte's newly opened asylum, popularly named "the Green House" Casa Verdepasses to take inside of its walls not only mentally ill patients but also healthy citizens who, according to Machado de Assis book doctor's diagnoses, are about to develop some sort of mental illness. This overprotection made him an insecure and dependent individual, unable to make decisions on his own and solve his own problems. Yet Machado is always writing about liberation in his way, which to him begins with the freedom — the obligation — to think. This was not for a lack of effort, either on the part of the Brazilian authorities, who have for decades sponsored translations of his work, or on the part of publishers, who have recruited legions of prominent spokespeople. He leaves Portugal, where he had gone to study, and returns to his native ground, where his fabulous erudition stuns his neighbors. Chapters 11—12 This gives pause to Bacamarte, who changes his tack and decides that balanced people are actually a small minority, and thus the anomaly that should be cured: the modest, the loyal, the wise, the patient, etc.
