Free download A Viagem do Elefante 105 XVI век Португалският крал Жуау III решава да подари за сватбата на ерцхерцог Максимилиан Австрийски един слон Слонът Соломон Така започва легендарното и абсурдно пътуване на дебелокожия бозайник от Лисабон до Виена – пътуване с много перипетии с много срещи и изпитания и за слона и за придружаващата го свита Групата се сблъсква с политически ма?. Here is a wonderful story especially I think if you have a deep connection to animals It is the story of Solomon the Elephant and his keeper Subhro and their journey as a gift from King Joao III of Portugal to his cousin Archduke Maximillian Hapsburgs in 1540 or so The voice is third person historical and wonderfully relaxed and unrushed It is a novelist s voice embellishing on historical factIt s hard to understand just why the archduke Maximilian should have decided to make such a journey at this time of year winter but that is how it is set down in history as an incontrovertible documented fact supported by historians and confirmed by the novelist who must be forgiven for taking certain liberties with names not only because it is his right to invent but also because he had to fill in certain gaps so that the sacred coherence of the story was not lostOmniscience is avoided This is especially evident in the narrator s refusal or inability to enter the thoughts of Solomon The animal is thus shown a certain respect and the limitations of the voice are clearly indicatedWe do not know what he Solomon is thinking but in the midst of these Alps we can be sure of one thing he is not a happy elephantAs I read about the passage of the archduke and his cortege in their passage through the snowy Alps I was filled with foreboding That s how affecting the writing is here One is entirely taken up with the plight of this elephant an animal of the tropics being forced through a snowy rocky landscape Saramago uses a run on sentence style stringing long passages together with commas and disdaining standard capitalization This has the clever effect of slowing the reader down almost as a caesura in verse making one concentrate intently on how the language is deployed Saramago was both a Communist and a famous atheist His send up of the Catholic Church its cynicism and hypocrisy is uite amusing and is by itself worth the price of the book Especially amusing is the miracle cynically wrought in Padua by an ecclesiastic of that city Solomon is coerced to kneel by the doors of the basilica which puts the fear of God into the populace which also kneels This story then precedes Solomon along his route The Archduke is not amused by the throngs of the pious One bit of interesting subtext occurs when the Archduke and his cortege make their way through the dangerous Brenner Pass For those familar with WG Sebald s The Rings of Saturn you know that the Brenner Pass is central to that book and the author offers some of his enigmatic photographs of it When Saramago s narrative reaches the Brenner pass he begins to discuss the difficulties of descriptive writing then saysIt s a shame that photography had not yet been invented in the sixteeth century because the solution would have been easy as pie we would simply have included a few photos from the period especially if taken from a helicopter and readers would then have every reason to consider themselves amply rewarded and to recognize the extraordinary informative nature of our enterpriseIs this a swipe at Sebald who according to some Saramago may have been one cheats by using photos It would certainly seem so but this is speculation Unless some lucky scholar hits paydirt I m afraid we ll never know Johannes Cabal the Necromancer you have a deep connection to animals It is the story of Solomon the

It pains me a bit to give a Saramago book such a low rating but of the seven of his that I ve read this was clearly the one I liked the least It s not that I disliked it In fact I was going to go for the third star but when I looked at what rating I had given the other six Saramago books I ve read I had to knock it down to two as I definitely liked The Cave better and that only got three Anyways enough of my personal Saramago rating history The reason this is getting two stars is that frankly it was a bit boring Yes there were still some moments where Saramago wowed in his particular way but mostly it was 200 pages about an elephant traveling from Portugal to Austria in the 16th century It was about as exciting as it sounds Written shortly before he died one is left with the feeling that Saramago s amazing writing talents were starting to fade The Elephant s Journey doesn t make me look any less fondly on Jose Saramago it is simply his book I have liked the least Nothing nothing less I still look forward to working my way through the rest of his bibliography
