Oct 29, Lori rated it xaramago was amazing Shelves: What sells at the Center will sell everywhere else, and what the Center rejects can barely be given away in the surrounding towns and villages. I greatly enjoy his authorial interjections, a tactic that often bothers me with other authors but seems completely endearing with Saramago.

Words may only take meaning in the way they interplay with one another, but it is through a careful consideration of words that we are able to deduce a fountain of wealth that flows through the author. Human beings go the step beyond and, at their best, respond delicately to delicacy with remarkable finesse. Patience not decisiveness is required for delicacy to emerge.


Even power saramgo seen as only assumed and created, keeping people submissive through emotions of fear and hopelessness. We are chained to the bottom of the cave, fascinated by the shadows Again a beautiful text from Saramago. I can understand the desire, but you would think that it would be a more effective device were it employed more sparingly. By arranging safamago together into the magic of literature, we are able to point towards a deeper understanding and dig up the buried treasure of substantial meaning.

But this is just one of the things described in this joze chapter. The Cave is a novel about exploring language and Form, not plot, and if you are patient there is an immense wealth of ideas to ponder and mull over that more than justify the effort.

Now retired, he wanders aimlessly around Disneyland all day. Spare and pensive, The Cave follows the fortunes of an aging potter, Cipriano Algor, beginning with his weekly delivery of plates to the Center, a high-walled, windowless shopping complex, residential community, and nerve center that dominates the region.

An abundance of information is not a replacement for character development. The son-in-law, Marcal, employee of The Center, finds his true purpose lies as al member of a family, a part of natural order as opposed to his imitation family as an employee joze a company.

There are literally things mentioned on the back jacket which do not happen until around page of the book. He lives with his cavegna daughter and her husband.

Jul 07, Weinz rated it it was amazing Recommended to Weinz by: Cipriano Algor, the potter, has relations only with officials, subordinates, sub-chiefs. Through this novel, I read a denunciation of our consumer society, a society of the futile and the superficial, governed by the merchants, creating useless and mortal needs.

Before long, the mysterious sound of digging can be heard beneath the Center, and what the family discovers will change their lives forever. Notably this exchange between a sub-chief and Cipriano, who irresistibly thought of the fall of the Kafka Trial: One day, caverma Center, literally the center of commerce in the story, cancels its order for Cipriano’s pottery, leaving the elderly potter’s future in doubt.

The same method doesn’t work for everyone, each person has to invent his or her own, whichever suits them best, some people spend their entire lives reading but never get beyond reading the words on the page, they don’t understand that the words are merely stepping stones placed across a fast-flowing river, and the reason they’re there is so that we can reach the farther shore, it’s josf other side that matters, Unless, Unless what, Unless those rivers don’t have just two shores but many, unless each reader is his or her own shore, and that shore is the only shore worth reaching.
