Writers such as Machado de Assis and Jorge Amado have both explored the use of the unstated and the forced compromise between extremes that have grown to be so crucial to the modernist movement.

No Brazilian author, however, has mastered the compromise quite like João Guimarães Rosa, a man who was once described as not only leading, but preceding the reader to a place where there is discord and cacophony under which there is a strange harmony…the third bank of the river…the land every soul craves for. In his collection of short stories, Primeiras Estórias (1962), Rosa pays particularly close attention to ambiguity as a main theme in Brazilian backland writing.

First translated to English in 1968 under the title First Stories, Primeiras Estórias, and in particular, The Third Bank of the River, is in many ways the defining work of the Brazilian short story.
