A fines de 1935, cuando acaba de fallecer Fernando Pessoa, llega al puerto de Lisboa un barco inglés, Highland Brigade, en el que ha viajado, desde Brasil, Ricardo Reis, uno de los heterónimos del gran poeta portugués. A lo largo de nueve meses cruciales en la historia de Europa, durante los que estalla la guerra de España y se produce la intervención italiana en Abisinia, asistiremos a la última etapa de la vida de Ricardo Reis, en diálogo con el espíritu de Fernando Pessoa que acude a visitarle desde el cementerio en los momentos más inesperados. Es la época de las plumas estilográficas, de las radios Pilot, de las Juventudes Hitlerianas, de los topolinos, en una Lisboa atlántica y lluviosa cuya atmósfera envolvente se convierte en el verdadero protagonista de esta fascinante experiencia narrativa. El año de la muerte de Ricardo Reis es una lúcida meditación, a través de un poeta y una ciudad, sobre el sentido de toda una época

El rey de Portugal está preocupado, pero la promesa de construir un convento franciscano será compensada con el nacimiento de un sucesor. Mientras tanto, Baltasar Mateus, Sietesoles, intenta sobrevivir con un gancho y un espigón a falta de su mano izquierda. Blimunda, su compañera, es capaz de ver el interior de las cosas y de las personas. Con ella, todo será más llevadero. El padre Bartolomeu Lourenço quiere volar, construir la passarola que le lleve por encima del rey, su convento, sus súbditos y las nubes, aunque le cueste el destierro y la locura."Son muchos los ecos que esta novela fascinante deja en la memoria, pero, sobre todo, el de su historia de amor resuena sobre el resto de la acción como una flauta en medio de una gran orquesta."

"Las noches de Bahía están pobladas de hombres singulares: desde el capitán Marítim, desgraciado en su matrimonio, y Tiberia, la sabia patrona del burdel más prestigioso del lugar, hasta Beatriz, la célebre echadora de cartas. Entre delirios de amor, aullidos de pasión y largas charlas delante de un buen vino, los hombres y mujeres de Jorge Amado celebran la fragilidad de aquellos seres humanos que se reconocen en la imperfección más absoluta y tiern."--Casa del libro

Viaje a Portugal by José Saramago( Book )

25 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Jose Saramago decided some twenty years ago to write a book about Portugal, his only desire was that it be unlike any other book on the subject, and in this he certainly has succeeded. Recording the events and observations of a journey across the length and breadth of the country he loves dearly, Saramago brings Portugal to life as only a writer of his brilliance can. Forfeiting sources of information such as tourist guides and road maps, he scours the country with the eyes and ears of an observer fascinated by the ancient myths and history of his people. Whether an inaccessible medieval fortress set on a cliff, a wayside chapel thick with cobwebs, or a grand mansion in the city, the extraordinary places of this land come alive with kings, warriors, painters, explorers, writers, saints, and sinners. Always meticulously attentive to those elements of ancient Portugal that persist today, Saramago examines the country in its current period of rapid transition and growth
Raised from the ground by José Saramago( Book )

17 editions published between 1988 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En el Portugal rural, magistralmente plasmado en la historia de una familia del Alentejo desde 1910 hasta 1979, incluyendo la Revolución de los Claveles, asistimos a un cuadro de ignorancia, pobreza y sumisión, descrito con amargura punzante, que nos lleva desde los levantamientos y ocupaciones de fincas de comienzos del siglo XX hasta la esperanza, finalmente pasajera para los personajes, en la revolución de abril. Saramago, en perfecta posesión de sus medios, extrae del lenguaje campesino recuerdo estilísticos muy nobles, y muestra el estilo consolidado y brillante, el espléndido humor a trechos y la singular aptitud para la reconstrucción de ambientes que lo sitúan entre los principales narradores del presente. --

Raimundo Silva es un revisor de textos de una editorial, un personaje anodino que tiene como misión en la vida conservar la integridad de los textos que llegan a sus manos. Un día, revisando un texto histórico, toma una decisión: introducir un "No" donde debiera aparecer un "Sí". Esta determinación altera, sin duda alguna, la historia escrita, pero también va a ser fundamental en su vida personal. El conservador Raimundo Silva no volverá a ser sujeto paciente de la historia, tanto la universal como la personal, porque su acto de rebeldía le hace asumir el protagonismo que, como hombre -y por tanto hegemónico- le corresponde en la vida. --Amazon.com
