Claraboya by José Saramago

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 l. a. 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; l. a. mantenida Lidia; y l. a. española Carmen, sumida en nostalgias...

Discretamente, los angeles mirada del novelista va descendiendo y, de repente, deja de ser easy 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, l. a. 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 los angeles 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 los angeles 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 l. a. voz de José Saramago, se reconocen sus personajes, se identifican l. a. lucidez y los angeles 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 l. a. necesidad de seguir leyéndole.»
Pilar del Río, traductora y presidenta de los angeles 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 los angeles 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 los angeles confianza con los angeles que el jovenescritor es capaz de buscar en el inside de estos personajes memorables.»

All the amateurs, romantics, overreachers, and pretenders will be crushed. Zola舗s scientific affectations, whether the alleged detachment of Naturalism or the obsolete genetic blather that makes its way into the narration, barely intrude upon the reader; his misogynistic puffing舒his invocations of Nana舗s poisonous effect on men舒can be safely glided over, since it is clear he does not entirely believe it himself. Nana is too complicated a character to be useful as a moralistic blunt instrument, even if Zola seems unwilling to acknowledge this until the very end of the book.

Lucy fired up at once. Was he afraid to be seen with her? Then suddenly calming down, she jumped to another subject. 舡 舠Nana! I never saw her! 舡 舠Is that really true? 舡 But Mignon, who was in front, put his finger to his lips to signal to them to be silent. 舡 They all stared after him. He was certainly very good-looking. Fauchery recognised him: his name was Daguenet, and he had squandered a fortune of three hundred thousand francse on women, and now dabbled in stocks in order to make a little money with which he could treat them to an occasional bouquet and dinner.
