É interessante ver o lado romantico de Machado de Assis. Esse livro, a pensar de ter aspectos realistas, não se encaixa com seu estilo realista- pessimista que observamos em Dom Casmurro ou Quincas Borba. Os finais dos contos, todos surpreendentes, chama a atenção do leitor de um escritor rômantico realista começando a sua carreira e com um movimento ainda em ascensão do brasil daquela época

Seleção de poucos e excelentes contos: As Bodas de Luis Duarte, Ernesto de Tal, Aurora sem Dia, O Relógio de Ouro, Ponto de Vista e uma novela: A Parasita Azul.
Doses homeopáticas da obra do grande escritor.
