Sample text

Em cada releitura me espantava com uma revelação, com um comentário sutil sobre a sua permanência no Amazonas. Eram observações feitas com a acuidade de um crítico, com o olhar de quem quer enxergar com uma lupa o que já foi visto a olho nu. Para mim, a Cattleya Eldorado era apenas duas palavras que encerravam um certo mistério; para Dorner era uma orquídea preciosa que originou outras de um colorido variadíssimo como a Splendens, a Ornata, a Crocata e a Glebelands. Ao mencionar essas catléias, ele precisava o tamanho de sépalas e pétalas, e me enveredava a uma nomenclatura excêntrica citando bulbos claviformes, folhas crassocoriáceas e flores aromáticas cujas cores oscilavam entre o rosa-pálido e o rosa-violáceo.

No meu íntimo, creio que deixei a família e a cidade também por não suportar a convivência estúpida com os serviçais. Lembro Dorner dizer que o privilégio aqui no norte não decorre apenas da posse de riquezas. — Aqui reina uma forma estranha de escravidão — opinava Dorner. — A humilhação e a ameaça são o açoite; a comida e a integração ilusória à família do senhor são as correntes e golilhas. Havia alguma verdade nesta sentença. Eu notava um esforço da parte de Emilie para manter acesa á chama de uma relação cordial com Anastácia Socorro.

Ao fim de algumas poucas semanas, já não se assustava em saber que dentro de uma cuia fervia um líquido que "fedia às maravilhas", e bastava inalar o vapor para que um mortal experimentasse a sensação do infinito. Dorner ouvia calado as descobertas e sensações do médico. Depois, a sós comigo, comentava, não sem um sorriso irônico, que os da terra percebem algumas evidências com uma certa demora. A amizade de Emilie com" Lobato foi louvada por uns e tripudiada por outros. Tu deves lembrar o atroz sofrimento do seu Américo, genro do Comendador, nossos vizinhos de linhagem lusitana; desde que aprendeu a andar tomava diariamente uma injeção de insulina.
