Added DiffLines:

*SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism: As a writer in the brazilian realist tradition, his works lean much more heavily towards the cynical end of the scale, focusing on the psychological complexity and flaws of his characters, and the hipocrisy and contradictory nature of brazilian society.

* ContinuityNod: Quincas Borba started as a character in ''Posthumous Memoirs of Brás Cubas'', wherein he starts developing his Humanitist philosophy.



* HowWeGotHere: Brás Cubas decides to start his ''Posthumous Memoirs'' from the last days of his life, and then he goes on to tell his story from when he was a child.



* ValuesDissonance: Brazil has a different definition of race and ethnicity than the United States. Therefore, even though he's seen as one of the greatest "black writers", neither he nor other Brazilians would consider him "black".
