Sabine, Mark. José Saramago: History, Utopia, and the Necessity of Error. Legenda, 2016
Beyond reasserting the author’s continuing commitment to a revolutionary socialist worldview, Sabine demonstrates through the detailed analysis of each of the five Saramago novels in question—Levantado do chão; Memorial do convento; O ano da morte de Ricardo Reis; A jangada de pedra; and História do cerco de Lisboa—the revisions that such a commitment entails in the face of the increasingly equivocal (and enabling) authoritarian forces of neo-liberalism and globalization that exclude subaltern voices.
