REVIEW Manual de Pintura e Caligrafia José Saramago ¹ 0 READ SUMMARY × PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ¹ José Saramago «O Manual de Pintura e Caligrafia é uma obra ímpar no género da literatura autobiográfica entre nós e oferece nos no seu conjunto um semental de ideias e u. Manual of Painting and Calligraphy is a philosophical book and as its title may hint at it is a novel about epistemologyCognition is the act of knowing this is the simplest definition with which I must be satisfied for it is essential that I should be able to simplify everything in order to proceed It was never exactly a uestion of knowing in the portraits I have paintedThe main character is a portrait painter and he earns his fees by painting people not as they are but as they vaingloriously imagine themselves to beIt amuses me to think that I am pursuing an extinct art thanks to which because of my fallibility people believe they can capture a somewhat pleasing image of themselves organized in terms of certainty of an eternity which does not only begin when the portrait is finished but was there before forever like something that has always existed simply because it exists now an eternity counted back to zeroOne day the protagonist disliked his new client so much that he decided to paint secretly his second true to life portrait in client s absenceThat is how it turned out The first picture was a complete failure and I could not give up If S eluded me or I failed to capture him and he realized it then the only solution would be a second portrait painted in his absence I tried this The sitter became the first portrait and the invisible one I was pursuing I could never be satisfied with a mere likeness nor even with the psychological probing within the grasp of any apprentice based on precepts as banal as those which give form to the most naturalistic and superficial of portraits The moment S entered my studio I realized I had to know everything if I wanted to dissect that self assurance that impassiveness that smug expression of being handsome and healthy that insolence cultivated day by day so that it might strike where it hurt mostBut the second portrait was also a failure so the painter settled on portraying his client in words and gradually the narration began to turn into his self portraitOur civilization is the sum of knowledge and skills so contemplating paintings reading books practicing arts and writing is a part of gnoseology as wellI am back at my writing but had broken off to place the chair on which I was sitting beside the saint Now I am on the floor with my legs crossed like the Egyptian scribe in the Louvre I raise my eyes and look at the saint I lower them look at the chair two manmade objects two reasons for living and I ask myself which is the perfect the apt for its purpose the useful And after much debate I withhold the prize from both the saint and the chairIn order to see things as they are and to find one s true self one must lose all conformity and hypocrisy

REVIEW Manual de Pintura e Caligrafia José Saramago ¹ 0 READ SUMMARY × PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ¹ José Saramago Ma carta de rumos da ficção de José Saramago até à dataNele se fundem as escritas de uma complexa e rica tradição literária e a experiência de um tempo. Always a pleasure There are such moments in life one unexpectedly discovers that perfection exists that it too is a tiny sphere traveling in time empty transparent luminous and which sometimes rarely comes in our direction and encircles us for a few brief moments before travelling on to other parts and other peopleI take back what I said earlier It certainly is a younger Saramago it takes him me longer to infuse his character with warmth but it comes There is some fascinating prose though I miss the pages long long paragraphs Saramago gets generous with his character gradually the same way the painter comes to himself through writing Someone said in one of the reviews here that he did t find the politics I think he would have if he was attempting to write within the margins of interesting times He would I guess relate to all the painstaking struggle to put three words that do not seem as a betrayal

    (E–pub) Manual de Pintura e Caligrafia author José Saramago I just found an unusual literary object by discovering the second novel of the Nobel Prize for Portuguese literature José Saramago published in 1977 Roman in parenthesis because it is not really a novel nor totally an autobiography although written in the first person and incontestably impregnated with the life of its author Moreover the author ends up showing it in scattered fragments mixture of eual parts of artifice
