After a "tilt" as he calls it, Hélio is sent to a psychiatric ward. Hélio is a "Marxist" teacher according to the curious description of his medical records. It is from the sessions with a therapist in the hospital that one can understand the meaning of the classification "Marxist" attributed to Hélio and the importance of this ideal in his life. It is also from the process of disillusionment of that same ideal that one is faced with Helio's "tilt" and with the first shades of melancholy in this case.

Keywords : melancholia; depression; Marxism; clinic.
