E kruna je brojnih književnih nagrada koje je primio za svoj rad i time je ujedno postao i prvim nobelovcem portugalskog jezičnog izraza. Update I said I would never read another Saramago because of his writing style I did though All the Names and Death with Interruptions Both brilliant But I listened to them I wouldn t have appreciated them as much if I d had to struggle through Saramago s idiosyncratic writing style In HG Wells In the Country of the Blind the only person who can see suffers great discrimination and has to agree to have his eyes removed and become as blind as the rest of the people who over the generations have adapted to life without vision In Saramago s book the only person who can see is the heroine of the book This is a device for telling the story which is the collapse of the social order as with just about all dystopian stories One wonders if given time those blinded by the disease wouldn t adapt as in Country of the Blind And if they did so then resent those who could see and instead of relying on the few sighted people for help despise them for the obvious power they have Perhaps even suspect them of exploiting that power for their gain and the blinds detrimentI read the book and watched the film I didn t find Saramago s style easy to read Extremely long sentences endless paragraphs and an idiosyncratic grammar made me have to concentrate on the reading than the subject matter It was worth it but written in standard English I think I would have enjoyed it The film was a good standard Hollywood film meaning it appeals to the masses has pretty people and no depth and has been designed to make money I uite enjoyed it but am glad I read the book firstAlthough I found this book interesting I didn t find it the cutting edge work of genius that I had read about I don t think I would ever read another Saramago because life is too short to struggle through such a difficult writing style The book took me about three times as long as if it had been written in a usual manner It seems to me to be an ego thing to write in a way that is completely different to everyone else The reason there is a standard way of writing is that it is easy for us all to understand rather than having to adapt to anyone s idiosyncratic idea of spelling and grammar Writing is communication and understanding is key This applies just as much to the reviewers on GR who don t ever use paragraphs and orcapital letters but it s one thing reading a review and another a whole book I m prepared to go along with someone s style if they write good reviews view spoilerreasonably short ones Write an unparagraphed essay length review and you ve lost me hide spoiler

Ensaio sobre a cegueira

Epidemija neobjašnjivog bijelog sljepila širi se nevjerojatnom brzinom i dovodi ljudsku egzistenciju na rub izdržljivosti humanosti mor. When you sit in a coffee shop at the corner of two busy streets and read a book about blindness you find yourself thinking unfamiliar thoughts and you believe when you raise your head to watch the people passing that you see things differently You notice the soft yellow light of the shop reflecting off the bronze of the hardwood floors You notice among the people coming from the train two girls who intersect that line spilt call back and go their ways dividing into the two directions of larger traffic When the girl working the shop goes out and leans against the brick entrance to clear her head of coffee smells or just to see of the sky you feel the breeze blow in and you smell it and you feel that all these things the sights and smells of a place you already know are now something different The place you know you don t know It becomes mysterious romantic a newness you don t have to search for or travel toward because you are already among it You only want to feel of it sweep over you and as a result feel new yourself If only for a few minutes longerYou walk home and notice a discarded knit hat at the foot of a tree you see the street cleaners orange signs tied to tree trunks lampposts telephone poles You see a train run alongside you the color of the silver clouds of the reflected golden light You see people in all their shapes walk past you each individual and anonymous You feel anonymous yourself and therefore forgiving patient You think everything is possible You think everything possible must already exist You think again of something you already believe that people read the books that find them That stories arrive to tell themselves as relevant as newsA little King a little Camus a little Gabriel Garcia which is to say Blindness is a lot of everything

Ala svega što nas u normalnim okolnostima čini ljudskim bićima Nobelova nagrada za književnost koja je Saramagu dodijeljena 1998 godin. Just imagine that you are going about your daily life as you always do It s a normal day nothing out of the ordinary But then suddenly without any forewarning you go completely blind One second seeing the world as you know it the next experiencing a complete and unending whiteness Then imagine you go to the trusty health professionals so they can get to the bottom of it the doctor doesn t know what s wrong with you but you re confident heshe will figure it out and prescribe accordingly And then the doctor goes blind But not just him everyone you have come into contact with is experiencing the same sudden white blindness The condition spreads and takes hold within a few hours soon this contagious blindness is spreading like wildfire and no one knows how to cure itThis book is so frightening and so realistic Blindness is not an alien concept like monsters and ghosts neither are contagious diseases So imagine a disease that prompted sudden blindness that spread from one person to another uicker than the common cold This book feels like a story that could happenOne of the main issues readers have with this if they have any is the writing style It s written in huge blocks of text with little punctuation no uotation marks and many run on sentences It can get a little disorientating but I guess that s the end of the world for you I actually found it incredibly effective in creating the air of blind panic that Saramago clearly wanted to impart People fumbling around in the whiteness hoping no one around means them harm and being powerless to do anything about it if they didSomeone once said You are who you are when no one is watching And in this world no one is watching Fear reigns and some will choose to exploit the fear or succumb to it I thought it was a frightening and believable portrait of the disintegration of societyVery highly recommendedBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube

    Not at all disturbing not at all compelling and not at all interesting Jose Saramago's Blindness only succeeds in frustrating readers who take a moment to let their imagination beyond the page Yes Saramago's story is a clever idea and yes he creates an intentional allegory to force us to think about the nature of humanity but his id
