Synopsis: "Translated into English, this highly controversial work of fiction is set in Leiria, Mexico, in a material and religious culture of this century not unlike the provincial Portugal where, as a young man, Eca de QuTiros was dispatched to train for the consular service. Leiria is a provincial cathedral city, in which the hypocrisies of churchmen were prevalent. Father Amaro, a young man like Eca himself, with a priestly rather than a diplomatic vocation, falls into a relationship with a woman, and their tragic story unfolds with a harsh relentlessness. The situation of women, tightly swaddled in conformities yet fevered in their illusions of romance, is addressed in this novel."
About the Author: Eca de Queiros (1845-1900) was Portugal's greatest nineteenth-century novelist. His works brilliantly evoke, and condemn, the rapidly changing society of his time. He travelled widely as a diplomat and, though he considered himself an apostle of Naturalist Realism, he is at heart an ironist, with the severity and compassion of Stendhal.
