Title in Portuguese
Construção e implicações dos contrastes em 'O Alienista', de Joaquim Maria Machado de Assis.

Abstract in Portuguese
"O Alienista" assume dentre os contos de Machado de Assis importância análoga àquela que algumas de suas personagens representam para o gênero, particularmente a figura do médico e cientista Simão Bacamarte. O tema nuclear - manifestação da loucura - constitui expediente eficaz para captar a atenção dos leitores, que, uma vez cativados, são conduzidos a uma segunda e mais grave leitura dos critérios sobre a exclusão de determinados indivíduos e disputas disparatadas pelo poder. Após a publicação em Papéis Avulsos (1882), o conto seria incorporado a numerosas coletâneas organizadas por pensadores brasileiros e estrangeiros que, de maneira geral, deixaram capítulos introdutórios importantes em que são oferecidas várias pistas para novas interpretações. As considerações presentes neste trabalho apoiaram-se tanto nas contribuições referidas acima como em bibliografia que inclui ensaístas, literatos, filósofos, historiadores e sociólogos. Tem-se o intuito de observar aspectos formais; averiguar o vínculo entre personagens (situadas espacial e temporalmente) em relação a personalidades, monumentos e fatos históricos representativos no Brasil e no mundo; estabelecer pontos de diálogo entre "O Alienista" e outras obras de Machado.
