About this title


The last years of Salazar's dictatorship provide a backdrop for this novel. The story is told by H., a second-rate artist commissioned by a wealthy client, S., to paint a family portrait. As he works, he reflects on his struggles to survive in a bourgeois world. The struggles and compromises of the common man, the ethics of the intellectual, and the love of man are the ingredients that comprise this novel by Jos&eacute; Saramago. <p>Description in Spanish: Pintor mediocre, dolorosamente consciente de sus limitaciones, H. recurre a las p&aacute;ginas de un diario como medio para comprender sus debilidades est&eacute;ticas y para comprenderse a s&iacute; mismo, cuando acepta el encargo de retratar a S., administrador de una compa&ntilde;&iacute;a. El trabajo le situar&aacute; no tanto en la m&eacute;dula de la crisis moral del artista como en la ra&iacute;z de todo acto de creaci&oacute;n est&eacute;tica.</p>
