O Estranho Caso de Cidália, a literary work whose genre is hard to define, the trail between fiction, romance and tragedy is quite narrow. Here we read the story of a dreamy young woman who was growing and maturing along the 200 pages the author has designed for herself. Cidália, this is her name! Could it be fictionalized? I believe that to be something we'll never know. Fiction, which for some is not more than that, for others it may be a close reading of the reality.
