According to Wikipedia: "Joaquim Maria Machado de Assis, often known by his surnames as Machado de Assis, Machado, or Bruxo do Cosme Velho (21 June 1839 ñ 29 September 1908), was a Brazilian novelist, poet, playwright, short story writer, and advocate of monarchism. Widely regarded as the greatest writer of Brazilian literature, nevertheless he did not gain widespread popularity outside Brazil in his own lifetime. He was multilingual, having taught himself French, English, German and Greek in later life. Machado's works had a great influence on Brazilian literary schools of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1941, the Brazilian Academy of Letters founded in his honor the PrÍmio Machado de Assis (Machado de Assis Prize), the most prestigious literary award in Brazil. JosÈ Saramago, Carlos Fuentes, Woody Allen and Susan Sontag are among his admirers.”g
