Download Claraboya by José Saramago PDF

By José Saramago

La novela perdida de José Saramago. Donde todo comenzó...

Amanece en Lisboa. En una mañana de mediados del siglo XX, los angeles mirada del novelista se asoma a los angeles ventana de un vecindario. Se anuncia un día no muy diferente de los demás: el zapatero Silvestre, que abre su taller; Adriana, que parte hacia el trabajo mientras en su casa tres mujeres inician otra jornada de costura; Justina, que tiene ante sí un largo día jalonado por las disputas con su brutal marido; los angeles mantenida Lidia; y los angeles española Carmen, sumida en nostalgias...

Discretamente, l. a. mirada del novelista va descendiendo y, de repente, deja de ser basic testigo para ver con los ojos de cada uno de los personajes. Capítulo a capítulo, salta de casa en casa, de personaje en personaje, abriéndonos un mundo gobernado por l. a. necesidad, las grandes frustraciones, las pequeñas ilusiones, los angeles nostalgia de tiempos que ni siquiera fueron mejores. Todo cubierto por el silencio tedioso de los angeles dictadura, los angeles música de Beethoven y una pregunta de Pessoa: ¿Deberemos ser todos casados, fútiles, tributables?

Saramago terminó de escribir Claraboya a los treinta y un años y entregó el manuscrito a una editorial de l. a. que solo obtuvo respuesta cuarenta años más tarde, cuando period un escritor consagrado. los angeles escritura minuciosa y paciente retrata con maestría una época marcada por l. a. desesperanza. Claraboya anticipa de un modo deslumbrante los elementos del universo Saramago, así como las virtudes que serán el germen de tantas obras maestras. En el texto se oye los angeles voz de José Saramago, se reconocen sus personajes, se identifican los angeles lucidez y l. a. compasión que según los angeles Academia Sueca distinguen su obra.

La crítica ha dicho...
«En todas las almas, como en todas las casas, además de fachada, hay un inside escondido.»
Raul Brandaõ

«Claraboya es un retrato luminoso sobre una época sombría; un regalo, porque los lectores pueden saciar los angeles necesidad de seguir leyéndole.»
Pilar del Río, traductora y presidenta de l. a. Fundación Saramago

«El unique estaba completo. Se ha podido publicar el libro sin ningún tipo de interferencia; no le falta nada, ni un bocado. Es una novela interesantísima, con un gran número de personajes, muy elocuente y bien narrada.»
Zeferino Coelho, editor portugués de José Saramago

«Tal vez exista alguna ingenuidad en l. a. elaboración de este libro, pero yo prefiero llamarla luminosidad, transparencia, y se lo agradezco. El dispositivo narrativo es, como siempre, potente y unique. Una vez más demuestra poseer el don que le hizo inconfundible y único.»
Inés Pedrosa, escritora

«Un relato sencillo y divertido, con los angeles fuerza y l. a. profundidad que han definido todo el trabajo posterior de Saramago. En Claraboya nos encontramos una mirada irónica, afilada y precisa sobre las relaciones humanas, y nos sorprende l. a. confianza con los angeles que el jovenescritor es capaz de buscar en el inside de estos personajes memorables.»
