Item description for Manual de Pintura y Caligrafía by Jose Saramago...

The last years of Salazar's dictatorship provide a backdrop for this novel. The story is told by H., a second-rate artist commissioned by a wealthy client, S., to paint a family portrait. As he works, he reflects on his struggles to survive in a bourgeois world. The struggles and compromises of the common man, the ethics of the intellectual, and the love of man are the ingredients that comprise this novel by Jos Saramago.

Description in Spanish: Pintor mediocre, dolorosamente consciente de sus limitaciones, H. recurre a las pginas de un diario como medio para comprender sus debilidades estticas y para comprenderse a s mismo, cuando acepta el encargo de retratar a S., administrador de una compaa. El trabajo le situar no tanto en la mdula de la crisis moral del artista como en la raz de todo acto de creacin esttica.

Reviews - What do customers think about Manual de Pintura y Caligrafía?

Filosofia para la gente comun  Apr 30, 2000
This book is not an adventure novel. The title of the book may seem like a self-help book, it isn't! It is about one man's decision to understand himself because he feels mediocre. It took a while to finish the book because it is the voice of one person writing down his thoughts about his painting, his lovers and friends, so it is full of philosophical ideas.
