O Primo Basilio, is Queiros' criticism of the bourgeoisie in Lisbon during his life. Luisa and Jorge's marriage is apparently happy, but while Jorge lives far away on business, Basilio, a handsome and cynical bon vivant who once dated Luisa, returns and seduces her. But Luisa's traitorous maid, Juliana, intercepts a letter between the two, and blackmail's Luisa. On his return, Jorge suspects nothing, and even though Juliana dies in an attempt to imprison her, Luisa falls ill from her guilt and dies, after confessing her adultery.
