Item description for Levantado del suelo (Punto de Lectura) by Jose Saramago...

Through the Alentejo family, Saramago conveys the story of rural Portugal from 1920 until 1979, including the Workers Movement Revolution of 1974. The author captures the language of the peasants using a concise and brilliant style, with a dose of black humor that show Saramago's talent for painting a perfect picture with words.

Description in Spanish:

Un escritor es un hombre como otros: suea. Y mi sueo fue poder decir de este libro cuando lo terminase: "Esto es el Alentejo".

De los sueos, sin embargo, nos despertamos todos, y ahora heme aqu, no delante del sueo realizado, sino de la concreta y posible forma del sueo. Por eso me limitar a escribir: "Esto es un libro sobre el Alentejo".

Un libro, una simple novela, gente, conflictos, algunos amores, muchos sacrificios y grandes hambres, las victorias y los desastres, el aprendizaje de la transformacin, muertes.

Del suelo sabemos que se levantan las cosechas y los rboles, se levantan los animales que corren por los campos o vuelan sobre ellos, se levantan los hombres y sus esperanzas. Tambin del suelo puede levantarse un libro, como una espina de trigo o una flor brava. O un ave. O una bandera. En fin, ya estoy otra vez soando. Como a los hombres a los que me dirijo.
