Short Desription

If in The Gospel According to Jesus Christ, Jose Saramago presented us with his vision of the New Testament, in Cain he comes back to the first books of the Bible. An unorthodox itinerary takes him to decadent cities and stables, palaces of tyrants and battlefields, led by the hand of the central characters of the Old Testament, with the music and refined humor that are the hallmark of his work.

Cain clearly demonstrates the modern and surprising aspects of Saramago s prose: the ability to weave a completely new tale out of a story we all know. An ironic and satirical journey where the reader is present at a secular and in a way, involuntary battle between the creator and his creature.

Spanish Description:
Que diablo de Dios es este que, para enaltecer a Abel, desprecia a Cain. Si en El Evangelio segun Jesucristo Jose Saramago nos dio su vision del Nuevo Testamento, en Cain regresa a los primeros libros de la Biblia. En un itinerario heterodoxo, recorre ciudades decadentes y establos, palacios de tiranos y campos de batalla de la mano de los principales protagonistas del Antiguo Testamento, imprimiendole la musica y el humor refinado que caracterizan su obra.

Cain pone de manifiesto lo que hay de moderno y sorprendente en la prosa de Saramago: la capacidad de hacer nueva una historia que se conoce de principio a fin. Un ironico y mordaz recorrido en el que el lector asiste a una guerra secular, y en cierto modo, involuntaria, entre el creador y su criatura.
