For a self-conscious fiction: the transposition of the novel Dom Casmurro to the television serial Capitu

This article discusses the possibility of reading the realistic and the self-conscious traditions of the novel, which are guided by the way the genre interprets the concept of verisimilitude throughout its history. This course of reflection is used here for a study of Luiz Fernando Carvalho's television serial Capitu (2008) - a transposition Dom Casmurro - which has also taken into consideration a manifest self-consciousness of the reflexive mechanisms used in Machado de Assis's novel, but then put into action by the specific procedures of the new medium.
