The Hindu – Space and Sensibility
This futuristic take on a classic tale continues the stories of characters first introduced in Pride and Prejudice in Space. Consequently, Machado questioned the existence of a meaningful objective reality and even the possibility of representation. Paul Dixon proposes, however, that Machado was both Realist and anti-Realist.
The deconstruction of Romanticism was a laudable goal.

Yet the Realist-Naturalists were simply exchanging one excess for another. He inveighed, "This creates nothing new; it merely substitutes one agent of corruption for another". There is an untranscendable boundary between reality according to the canons of art, and reality according to nature [ If the mission of art were copying the facts, exactly the way they are in real life, then art would be useless; memory would be substituted for imagination [ If an exact copying of things were the ultimate goal of art, then indeed the best novel or play would be the shorthand reproduction from a court trial [ I do not, however, suggest that we cultivate a stuffy and decadent Romanticism either However, to free oneself from the excesses of one by falling into the excesses of the other is to transform nothing.
Machado sought to forge what Peter Stowell calls "subjective objectivism". Authors present a carnivalesque vision of a supersensory truth "as far above common sense as it is above common illusion".
Time, Space & Sensibility
It is most apparent in his focus on how the external reality beyond the senses is influenced by the consciousness through which it was filtered. Machado's characters are limited empiricists who are faced with perceptual ambiguity, hidden motives, and partial knowledge.
Yet they have the moral responsibility to choose from imperfectly understood alternatives. The normal causal and linear relationship between beginning, middle, and end, which characterized the traditional novel, is altered through juxtaposition, fusion, reversal, or jumbling.
3. The “Metaphysical Exposition”
Machado sought to expand the boundaries of aesthetic subjectivism and aesthetic objectivism, as well as maintain the nonhierarchical nature of their relationship. His goal was to move beyond the complicity of aesthetic division in order to transform these dynamics into aesthetic reconciliation that emphasized the essential nature of aesthetic equality.
Accordingly, Machado conveyed a more nuanced relationship between various categories of difference — particularly subject and object — that distinguishes his perspective from the typical modern worldview.
