The Cave by José Saramago

Despite the growing tumor of consumerism and authoritarianism, The Cave offers a bright beacon of hope.

The Center offers safety from the dangers of rural life, making a large show of the way they fight back against the shantytowns that rob trucks en route to The Center.

The same method doesn’t work for everyone, each person has to invent his or her own, whichever suits them best, some people spend their entire lives reading but never get beyond reading the words on the page, they don’t understand that the words are merely stepping stones placed across a fast-flowing river, and the reason they’re there is so that we can reach the farther shore, it’s the other side that matters, Unless, Unless josse, Unless those rivers don’t have just two shores but many, unless each reader is his or her own shore, and that shore is the only shore worth reaching.

Josd is not a weak novel, but one simply best suited for those that already hold the wise Saramago as dear in their hearts. Saramago is absolutely the greatest author I have ever read. It finally wiggled its way up into my consciousness yesterday as I was reading The Cave and Saramago embarked on a multi-page description of all the different types of people in an encyclopedia.

Human beings go the step beyond and, at their best, respond delicately to delicacy with remarkable finesse. Not just delicacy in written description, but how we l human beings are delicate in our use of words with each other in everyday life. Words used indelicately, even unintentionally, can hurt.

Though my money is still saramag Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The Cave chronicles the struggles and strife of the kind hearted Algor family, who find themselves in a difficult place when the powerful capital city The Center ceases purchasing their hand-crafted pottery, choosing instead to stock their shelves with plastic dining sets that are cheaper to mass produce, and are bound by a contract forbidding any dealer to the Center, past or present, from selling to anyone else.

Immenso come sempre, nei contenuti, negli approfondimenti degli stati d’animo, nelle caratterizzazioni delle situazioni. His sarwmago prose with continuous dialogues that sweep along uninterrupted lines of text—in which only a Capital letter signals the alternation of voices–; with the periodic authorial guidance that always strips out the unequivocal from trapping conventions; with his shrewd meditations on the nature of language and of creativity; with a much milder and sweeter presence of the humour to which he has accustomed us with other works; and with his inimitable candour and current of tenderness, makes the rowing and reading an exercise in healing serenity.

The way Saramago paints his characters leads you in two directions.

La Caverna (the Cave)

You are right, the secret of the bee, Saramafo exist, but we know it. Here we meet Cipriano Algor, a humble potter supplying the Center with his plates and mugs and water jugs. No one can walk away from this book without having part of it stay with them. Driven by curiosity, reading the river engulfs you with its roll.

But the son-in-law lets the old man in to view it. And the book only hase pages.

Readers unfamiliar with the work of this Portuguese Nobel Prize winner would do well to begin with The Cavea novel of ideas, shaded with suspense.

The unidentified unnamed city molded itself into my own artificial city in the south. This niggling little issue has been eating at me recently because I’ve taken to reading books aloud and find myself running short of breath halfway through these interminable lists.

Dogs are able to reduce what are – to humans – complex patterns of speech to simple emotional conditions – happiness, meditativeness, anxiety, frustration – and leave it at that. Around the Center are rings of slums, industrial factories and factory farms in gree Saramago sets this story in a dystopia but it is not far off in the future — we almost live in it now!

He needs to describe the minutiae of each person’s wardrobe and coloring! This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. He will not, like Marta, call them rejects, for to do so would be to drive them from the world for which they had been born, to deny them as his own work and thus condemn them to a final, definitive orphanhood. Saramago has a way of pulling you into his stories and making you a part of what he is writing.
