The narrative features used by André Caramuru in his novel – which is divided into a stream of consciousness, first-person narrative and direct speech – accompanied by the beauty of Chinese poetry, with the symbolic profusion of its millennial ideograms, allow us to read Chinese poetry in several layers simultaneously. While teaching at the university, in the midst of the everyday life of a middle-aged man, the protagonist-professor Teixeira engages in a forbidden passion that redefines his experience in the world, crossing the complex field of desires while at the same time accommodated in the security and seeking the unknown.
