A Estátua e a Pedra
A self-reflexive text in which José Saramago revisits his narratives, book by book. Resulting from a conference in Turin, A Estátua e a Pedra also includes contributions by Professor Giancarlo Depretis and the philologist Luciana Stegagno Picchio. In a clear and fluid style, the only Nobel Literature Prize winner in the Portuguese language approaches his readers to hand out new interpretations of his works. Starting out with the statue he considers to be O Evangelho Segundo Jesus Cristo, José Saramago breaks down his literary output, finding in Blindness the reference cornerstone of his career.
