On the epigraphs that accompany some poems of Crisálidas (1864), by Machado de Assis, there is the parade of authors such as Dante, Camões Heine and Homer. The same happens in the following books of poems, Falenas (1870) and Americanas (1875). The choice of these names reveals authors of Machado's library that accompanied him throughout his career and that influenced his composition so since his debut in the lyrics. Such names dialogue with Machado's poetry and help us to better understand the poetic composition of the author, and not only source of supply for the poems, but also in relationship with them on the issue of understanding of the work, giving them a new meaning.
